Who is The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir? We are a chambery folky punky band based in Chicago. We've played with The Violent Femmes and The Arcade Fire. We've been glowingly praised in Billboard and Time Out NY. Elia's songs from our first album have been featured on The OC, in a Michael Rappaport film, and in a play at Second City. Press for our current record: "a hug for the downtrodden" -spin.com "Einhorn’s lyrics, his deft collisions of the dark and the upbeat, recall Morrissey at his sharpest" time out chicago "brilliant" newcity chicago "4/5 stars- beautiful" -allmusic.com "street corner stories... dolled up style and wise-guy sensibility... [Elia is] a taleteller in the David Johansen mode" -paste magazine
