The Monster, Cody Mausolf, on drums 11/2019-present.
Cody accidentally joined the band after shooting our Crawl video with his film business The Liquor Portal. We became quick friends and he happily jumped in to our studio rehearsals and before long we were gigging with him.
You can find Cody shooting around town for band concerts, and music videos as well as weddings and video podcasts. When he isn’t drumming with the EG band or I Am The Liquor he is bartending as Becky at Another Round RVA.

The Unicorn, Dylan Lawson, on guitar 8/2019-present.
Dylan also joined the band on accident as he filled in for Camden while he was away at college. We got so attached to him we decided we needed two guitarist. Dylan easily joined Emma in the studio to track solos. His humility is equal to his talent.
You can find Dylan around the East Coast playing with his other projects Dismantle the Architect, Asylum 213 and co.ghost while making a living as a fire alarm technician.

The Centaur, Dylan Edwards, 3/2021-present.
In 2021 we decided to take a different direction after Camden moved on to his own projects and to prepare for his return to college. There are few guitarist in Richmond that can equal Camden’s skill and enthusiasm…but we found him. We are looking forward to building our band family with Dylan who has 14 years of guitar experience and several years of performance time.
Dylan can also be found on stage with Loxias and Followship. And yes his mouth is always open when he plays.

The Storyteller, Mitchel Bamberger, on bass 3/2021-present.
Mitchel started hanging out with the band when he starred in our Mother May I video. While he is also Emma’s life partner his experience teaching bass guitar made him an ideal candidate for joining the band. He doesn’t play bass outside of the band and was up for the challenge for the position. He is also one of Richmond’s top storytellers and we look forward to his lyric and composition input.
When Mitchel isn’t playing with the EG band he leads his band folk band Mitchel Evan and the Saboteurs, or is out playing solo. During 2020 Emma and Mitchel started an old school country duet to help overcome the pandemic obstacles with EM & ME. He teaches children’s music lessons as well at Powhatan Music and Sound to supplement his gigging.

Andrew Rohlk, founding guitarist 9/2018-6/2019
Emma met also met Andrew at School of Rock in 2015. He was her instructor and school director. They had their ups and downs like many student-teacher relationships but when Emma graduated and started her original band Andrew was ready to make some changes. He enthusiastically co-wrote and performed with her with piles of faith in her future growth. He can now be found fronting his own project and continuing to teach.
