Emerson Hall

Emerson Hall Jr.jpg

Emerson Hall Jr! Emerson, A.K.A. “Duney” was born on the West side of Detroit and began teaching himself bass from a very early age. He grew up to become a true Motown bassist; playing professionally with the Funk Brothers of Motown and performing with such national acts as Luther Ingram, Dennis Coffee, Scorpio and the Four Topps. His playing can be heard on Luther Ingram’s hit song, “If Loving You is Wrong I Don’t Wanna Be Right.” He has also performed locally with Alberta Adams, Priscilla Price and the legendary blues singer Thornetta Davis. All in all, Emerson has been playing professionally for the past forty years; it is an absolute honor and privilege to have him!


Paul Moore

Paul Moore, aka “Pauly” is Remedy's newest guitarist. Born of Filipino and Irish decent, Paul’s parents encouraged him to play music at a very young age. His mother started taking him to lessons when he was just seven. By the time other kids were just starting to play, he already knew quite a bit on the guitar. This knowledge has taken him far, through many bands including the acclaimed Michigan band Bridge, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels (whom Pauly still plays with on occasion); and now he joins the stage with The Remedy Band as Karin Elizabeth’s lead guitarist. His playing style is both remarkable and unforgettable. You won’t want to miss this Voodoo Child’s tasteful spin on Jimi Hendrix! Pauly is excited to begin his new musical journey with Remedy!

Lily Suau

Multi-instrumentalist Lily Suau was born in Rochester, Michigan. She is well-versed in piano, guitar, and about twenty other instruments ranging from drums to marimba. She began her musical journey taking classical piano lessons when she was seven years old, and continued for over a decade. She was in eight bands during High School, including Oakland Youth Orchestra, the Falcon Marching Band, Pit Orchestra, Jazz Band, Rochester Community Band, Wind Ensemble, Pep Band, and her original band. When she is not playing in one of her many bands, she is writing and recording her experimental, mysterious compositions. Drawing on artists like Depeche Mode, Mac Demarco, and Air, Suau focuses on electronic, ambient tunes. Aside from her music career, she is studying computer science and mathematics at Oakland University while participating in multiple campus bands. Lily is thrilled to be expanding her music knowledge by working with Remedy and The Lofteez.
