Biography

Rock Hill SC, United States (2001 – present)

Emery is an American four-piece band from Rock Hill, South Carolina currently signed to both Tooth & Nail and solid state records. Emery moved to Seattle, Washington in order to reach a more music centered scene. The band resists being labeled a “Christian band”. Before signing with Tooth & Nail, Emery recorded 2 EP’s, The Columbus EEP Thee and The Weak’s End demo that they used to attract attention from labels. With Tooth & Nail, they have recorded 4 studio albums, and 2 EPs. The Weak’s End, their debut album, was released in 2004, followed by The Question in 2005 and I’m Only A Man in 2007. The latter fulfilled Emery’s contract with Tooth & Nail. However, the band re-signed with the label and released In Shallow Seas We Sail on June 2, 2009. The band’s most recent album, We Do What We Want, was released on March 29, 2011.

Formation and Early Years (2000 – 2001)
Emery formed in 2001 in Rock Hill, South Carolina but moved to Seattle, Washington in search of a better musical environment. The band was named after a first grader that Toby Morrell met while working as an intern for a teacher in college. The four members in the band at the time, Toby Morrell (vocals/guitar), Devin Shelton (drums), Matt Carter (guitar/keyboards), and Joel “Chopper” Green (bass) actually left Rock Hill, South Carolina for Seattle on September 11, the day of the terrorist attacks; they found out about the attacks when they stopped at a local diner in South Carolina. Most of the members are from the bands Sachul, Joe 747, Simply Waynes and Oogie Brown. After a little while Seth Studley, who was one of the original members of the band, broke out of a serious relationship and followed them to Seattle and resumed his post as drummer.
