The album is a compilation of songs written to challenge the listener’s ideas of love, be the forgotten voice of women, and share Emma’s story.
Eve’s Song is a moving guitar driven folk-meets-soft rock-meets-soul production which takes the listener on an emotional rollercoaster from start to end. Emma’s songwriting prowess really shines through as she tells a story of a loyal love that has seen difficult times but chooses to hold on regardless.
Produced by Manchester-based Dan Stirling, Exquisite album has a sense of urgency and passion which has cleverly been combined with a captivating tenderness.
The mother of 2 who has been through what she describes as “tough times” in her life says:
‘Music is my expression. It’s how I tell stories and talk about the things I really care about. I hope that it connects with people who feel like they can relate to the sense of vulnerability. It’s all about making music that touches people in various stages in their lives, who are still trying to work things out and process what life has thrown at you. Searching for truth and healing whilst surviving has pushed my pen to write the songs I have so far'.
During 2020 and 2021 Emma released seven singles off the album, with many of them being featured in UK Gospel Christian Astepfwd charts, her single 'Journey home' reached number 1 and was subsequently nominated for song of the year in the Rock metal category in December 2021.
