“.... part of EMKE’s sound is decidedly retro, and when they power up a song, like their original Too Late, the modern melodic hard rock projects sophistication beyond their years.”

While on vacation in Hawaii, my wife and I discovered this awesome band with a refreshingly new sound... EMKE had us mesmerized. Stage presence that commanded the audience and talent bursting from every angle!

“The entertainment industry is full of children who get by on cuteness.... but don’t write them (EMKE) off as kiddie rock or a novelty act. The members are younger than most bands on the local scene, but they’re not kids playing at being a rock band. They can rock hard. This collection (EP) of originals shows they have talent and potential as writers as well.”
John Berger - Honolulu’s veteran scene reporter, music reviewer and premier theater critic for the Honolulu Star Advertiser
