The 29-year-old has penned songs with titles such as "I Used to Have a Heart," "Hate Everyone" and the tongue-in-cheek "I Will Never Write an Obligatory Song About Being on the Road and Missing Someone," which includes the chorus, "I want my baby back."So when Bemis married another singer, Sherri Du Pree-Bemis of the band Eisley, in 2009, he faced a new kind of dilemma."I have no issues in my love life at all, literally, and that encompassed a decent chunk of what I was writing about in Say Anything," Bemis, who plays a solo acoustic set at the Ottobar on Sunday, said on the phone from his Tyler, Texas, home last week.
Du Pree-Bemis also sang a verse for a song on Brighten's album King vs.Queen, and she sings during the Two Tongues track "Interlude" on the supergroup's self-titled 2009 album, as well as the second interlude on their second LP.Three of her siblings, Chauntelle, Stacy, and Weston Du Pree, were also members of Eisley, along with her cousin, Garron Du Pree.Her youngest sister Christie has also occasionally performed with them live.Du Pree-Bemis first contributed vocals to tracks on Say Anything's self-titled album and has since been featured every subsequent album by the band.
She is the co-singer-songwriter of the band Perma, with her husband Max Bemis of the band Say Anything. The couple together has two children named Lucy Jean Bemis and Coraline Mae Bemis. Sherri has four siblings named Stacy Du Pree, Chauntelle Dupree, Christie Du Pree, and Weston Du Pree. Their marriage didn’t last long and they divorced after a short period of their marriage. After their divorce, she married her second husband, singer Max Bemis on 4 July 2009.Although he's now more comfortable now on independent label Equal Vision, Bemis says he has no regrets about his RCA experience. Matt Pryor, Sherri Du Pree-Bemis, Perma and Merriment will also perform. Still, he sounds more confident discussing the future than the past. It exists only to be art."If you go Max Bemis performs Sunday at the Ottobar, 2549 N. After the departure of her siblings, Dupree-Bemis became Eisley's primary singer and songwriter.
