Max and Sherri Bemis have started a Kickstarter to release four albums:
This isn’t just about one album even in the literal sense. We want to give the world FOUR albums and stream them for free regardless of who backs this Kickstarter. One full length LP, two e.ps and one of indeterminate length. All created by the Bemis family. So that would be the Perma album, the first solo Sherri Dupree-Bemis album, my first solo album (the first release by me since Say Anything recently stopped), and the first release by our girls’ indie rock project, which they’ve titled FLOWER PETAL FLOWER ROSE.
I had the opportunity to interview Sherri DuPree-Bemis from the band Eisley. We chatted about how she has developed as an artist, her family life on the road, and took a deeper dive into their upcoming acoustic record, I’m Only Dreaming…Of Days Long Past, available everywhere on July 20th via Equal Vision Records.
Ever since I was a kid, this has been our band. Eisley has just been such a big part of my life. I’ve never wanted to do a solo project or anything like that. I felt like writing the songs under a different name would just be confusing and pointless, just because I have a certain style, and that style is Eisley.
I’m a very sentimental person, too, so that was probably some of it. When faced with losing [Eisley], I was just kind of shellshocked. I never saw there being an end to this in my life. It’s just everything that I want to do creatively, so I feel very, very blessed that I had everyone on the record rallying around me, and lifting me up, and being like, “You can do this.” Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have pushed through.
