AIf you have never heard of the band called Esperanza, you might want to find out a little bit more about them. By reading this article you will learn about the life of the lead vocalist, Emily Spalding. She is also known as “Queen Emmo,” a name which got made popular when the song was first released in 1984. After a few years playing around with other groups, Spalding decided it was time to take on a major label contract and put out a new album. This album was entitled All Time and marked a turning point for both her career and that of her band.
In 1984, Emily Spalding released her first jazz album as a member of the band “ESP.” It was an immediate success, going gold, and becoming another band member. Then, in the late ’80s, she released her second album as a member of the band” Esperanza.” This time around, she went with the much bigger band “Esperanza” and even had a string of shows that year at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. After that, she decided to try out her own solo career, but was not pleased with the results, and after considering it, decided to focus on the sound of the entire band again.
In the meantime, her band mate from the first Jazz album became one of the biggest guitarists in the world. He is Paul McCartney. During the ‘reign’ of these great minds, they decided to call it quits, but still continue working together. Now, they are joined by a new band called “Esperanza.”
What does this mean for you? Well, being a fan of this band, I was very happy to read about the joining of this great ensemble. This means more than fifty years of history in music for one artist, which makes me feel very proud. In fact, I am so proud that I have been able to witness the rise and fall of some of the best new artists in the genre during my time as a fan. Now, that I am a member of “Esperanza,” I have the privilege of reading many of her articles, which make me even more proud.
