She's a songwriter, a sometime actor, and a rock 'n' roller who played in David Bowie's band). And recently, the multitalented Emm Gryner turned her hand to blogging about her experiences as a new mom. But don't worry -- this isn't your typical yummy-mummy bloggery. Emm started her blog, mumhum, because, as she says, "I learned so much about pregnancy and baby's first year and I want to write it down before I forget everything." And she promises: "No ads, no sappy mom stuff, no boring crap." (As evidenced from a recent tweet @emmgryner too: "Dear sleepy infant, what do you mean you don't want to be read TS Eliot The Waste Land at nap time?") In between forthright non-sappy blog posts, Emm's been hard at work at music, with a new recording called Canticle coming out in the fall. Meanwhile, she's Up Close with Drive in a studio performance.
On Tuesday January 25 I'm playing guitar with Emm Gryner for a session on CBC's Radio 2 Drive show.
