about

BORN ON THE GROUND by Emily Duff is a collection of Nine “love” songs that capture 9 different break-ups from Emily's past. BORN ON THE GROUND is a luxurious 20/20 hindsight, look back without anger for the year 2020.

“I wanted to examine former wounds through the mature lens of time with self-confidence, faith and the wisdom of motherhood and marriage. On my own from a very young age, I grew up without positive role models for relationships and learned from my mistakes to understand where true love & happiness lives for me today. Those ideas were definitely born on the ground cause that's where I was left to figure it all out and when you're born on the ground, there's really only one way to go...or is there?” - Emily Duff

Produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (The Del Lords, Yahoos, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Bottle Rockets, Steve Earle, Nils Lofgren, Jimbo Mathis) at Cowboy technical Services Rig in Greenpoint, Bklyn and mastered by Richard Dodd (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), BORN ON THE GROUND was recorded live in Brooklyn with the Emily Duff Band: Scott Aldrich, Skip Ward, Charlie Giordano and Kenny Soule with guest appearances by Eric Ambel on guitars, Syd Straw, Mary Lee Kortes & Tricia Scotti on background vocals.
