About

Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) is a band from the tiny town of Fenton, Michigan that started in 2006. Keith plays guitar, bass, drums, trumpet, cello, etc and sings.  Cathy plays guitar.  

Live, they rely on their friends to fill in the vacant positions,  so each Empire! Empire! show is unique. Usually, the band on tour with Empire! will be manning the drums and bass, but don’t be surprised if you don’t see Cathy at a show. She is still very much in the band, but has a more restrictive touring schedule.
