Equally adept with the acoustic Hawaiian lap steel guitar and Dobro, Emil first appeared on the South Florida music scene in 2000. Fans hear haunting, subtle hints of Delta bluesmen Son House and Blind Willie Johnson, but Emil ultimately creates a unique style all his own by integrating country blues, folk, bluegrass and lush Hawaiian sounds into his repertoire.
Routinely taking the lost art of slide guitar in a new direction, Emil has composed a wealth of slide guitar tracks for media production libraries. His instrumental tracks have been published by LA Post Music in Los Angeles, Westar Music in Canada and Strange Fruit in South Africa. Emil recently became the first American musician to be published by London’s KPM/EMI, one of the world’s largest production libraries. Among the many television and cable network shows Emil has supplied music for are “Dateline,” “The Voice,” Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations,” ESPN, UFC’s Ultimate Insider , American Pickers and several international wildlife and nature documentaries.
