There isn’t much I can add to how great Emitt Rhodes is.  I discovered him while in the middle of recording my album “Let’s Be Poor Together” and it couldn’t have happened at a more appropriate time.  His production sense greatly influenced the sound of my album and helped me define what I was looking for in myself as a musician.

Anyhoo,Click Here Now and get the amazing, yet sad story of this man.

will do. yeah, when I found out about him, i totally freaked out cus I had no idea who he was.. and when I played some of his songs for friends.. they were like “when did you write this song?” hahah..

Emitt is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. My heart aches from learning his unhappy life story. Rare is the life so poised for greatness and then so far fallen away from it.
I want to have hope for him still. Life is hope.

yes.. it always makes me angry the way he was treated by the record industry. It really leaves me speechless.

I don’t know if you live in S. Cal, but have you ever tried to approach him? H lives about twenty minutes from me across town. I lost my job and looking for another, so I’m broke and can’t take him to lunch right now. His address and ph# are in the book. I’ve read he’s somewhat fragile now and I wouldn’t want to hurt him.
