band bio

emily the band is a three-piece queer girl group based in Peoria, Illinois. Emily Antonacci, Camryn Proctor, and Abbey Haste began to share their indie alt-pop anthems with audiences in the Peoria area in April 2021. Since then, they have expanded their reach to Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Nashville, and beyond. Their highly-anticipated, self-produced debut album, the heartbreak album (2022), has been described as a "hooky pop-gem" (Jon Norton, WGLT). Their upcoming EP, mwah!, will be available in the summer of 2024.
