Emery Villains formed in 2019.
Started by Scott Holderby (lead vocals and guitar) with Rhoda Jean Steen (vocals and guitar). The Carolina Drifters from the 50's, featuring Rhoda and her brothers Paul and Clarence were the backup band for the Black Jack Wayne Show on channel 2, backing Johnny Cash, Buck Owens and others.

Scott looked over to his guitar player Danny White (vocals and lead guitar) from Mordred to do the finger picking. Scott then turned to a high school friend, Hank Alva (vocals and upright bass) to round out the groove of the tunes. 

Emery Villains started with the tunes that The Carolina Drifters played and have since been writing their own western, honky tonk music playing multiple venues in the Bay Area and creating a really good following.
