"As the longtime leader of Triangle indie rock favorites Schooner, singer Reid Johnson developed a distinctive melodic style, with his voice dipping low and then shooting high with a hint of cracking falsetto. There was always a bit of R&B romance to his songs, of the singer dancing with his hooks. That trademark happily lingers in Sun Studies, Johnson’s new solo project where his singsong melodies radiate Roy Orbison warmth through layers of tumult and noise."
-Hopscotch Music Festival (Raleigh, NC)
In the fall of 2009, Easterly released a new single, "The Only Two On Earth" with the B side "Montreal". After a move to Asheville, NC she wrote songs for the EP Get Bothered, released in 2013. Since acquiring a drum kit and learning to play, many of the songs on Get Bothered were written starting with a drum groove, a departure from her usual songwriting process. In the summer of 2018 she released two new singles, the cinematic sounding "Yellow Leaves" with "Put on a Show" as the B side.
"The combination of voice, melody and production makes Emily Easterly one to watch."
“Dark indie folk fading fast through gritted teeth.”
-The Village Voice
"Well-rounded to the point of perfection, sweet, slyly inventive and ultimately highly memorable." -Richmond Times Dispatch
