Emma Elizabeth a singer songwriter from London currently based in Barcelona has recently come of hiding. After 7 years of not releasing any music, she is finally ready to start sharing her experiences of life with us again.
She says “For me songwriting is a form of therapy. It’s my way of making sense of the world around me. Modern life with its unpredictable situations and unreliable people can be overwhelming at times. Around every corner are new challenges and endless uncertainty; all of which can feel quite painful sometimes. Moments like these can sometimes be better understood or people easier to let go of once you’ve written a song about them.”
Her songs often present an all immersive experience, initially taking inspiration from nature within the song writing and then later through the sounds used or created during the studio recording process.
With songs filled with relatable lyrics that hit you hard accompanied by uplifting seas of vocal harmonies is the perfect mixture for music that takes you on a journey, leaving you feeling lighter than you were at the start.
“Her songs are defined by their relatable lyricism, incredible vocal harmonies and their soothing quality.”RIGHT CHORD MUSIC
Her newest release ‘Salt Water Acoustic’ was strongly influenced by the feeling of being in the ocean. After struggling with her mental health after the lock down, during a trip to Devon with her family she found comfort and strength within the nature surrounding her.
The song features the sound of rain falling on the tent that she slept in during her trip. It was recorded on her iPhone the night she wrote the song.
This is the first release from my current project.
Coming back to music after taking a long break I realised that I wanted to create more than just songs. I wanted to create an experience. I want people to come out from listening to my music feeling as though they have changed somehow. Although maybe being left feeling a little vulnerable, there is also a silent reassurance that not all is lost.
Salt Water is a beautifully vulnerable track. It is both calm and inspiring to the extent that the listener feels that they themselves are swimming in the ocean, or sat watching its waves. Emma Elizabeth’s voice is gorgeous, and the lyrics are completely captivating.”RIGHT CHORD MUSIC
