Emchy is the affectionate nickname of accordion player and poet Cindy Emch. Emchy is a cat person who fervently loves her dog, a midwestern girl who is hella west coast after 15 years in the Bay Area, a punk rocker who loves country music and experimental jazz, and a walking bundle of contradictions. For day jobs she's burnt beachside hot dogs, patrolled cemeteries, worked an old school phone switchboard, done accounting for a kinky leather shop, programmed films for one of the world's biggest film festivals and worked for MTV (among other things).

Right at this moment she is trying to take over the world with the bands Vagabondage, Rhubarb Whiskey, and the Oakland Wine Drinkers Union (Local 88).e.

Cindy's writings have been been published in the Can I Sit With You project, LodeStar Quarterly, There Journal, Tough Girls 2: More Down and Dirty Dyke Erotica edited by Lori Selke, It's So You: 35 Women on Fashion, Beauty and Personal Style edited by Michelle Tea, and numerous chapbooks. She also founded, hosted and curated San Francisco's Queer Open Mic from 2004 - 2008.


She believes that art can create change in the world and that it's not so hard to be nice to people. She also thinks that dirt smells like magic and gets lost in the woods on purpose.
