That’s when your heart feels heavy and about to sink beneath the deep
That she begins to sing then bring in the bliss and healing you need.
The soothing sound of her voice inspires Hope and Love for oneself
The mighty sound of her voice might resonate like a call of Redemption.
Emotions are loud and raw despite the flaws, and once all out it all feels like Freedom
And all uncertainties finally fly away leaving room for Self-Confidence.
emaé stands to supply strength and comfort and make you believe in something Better.
That’s what a soulful voice with Gospel undertones feels like.
Gospel and Soul are best to capture the Feels and picture Joy, and emaé stands by it.
Independent Scottish singer-songwriter, nominated by Gospel Touch Music for the Critics Choice Awards last year, is about to release her highly anticipated debut album set to release later this year.
‘Better‘ is the first single off new project.
The songwriting is genius. Besides the poetry of her lyrics that indicates vulnerability and weaknesses, the score is greatly suggestive.
The play of the piano and the high notes of her voice suggest indeed strength and improvement over uncertainties.
Written and composed by herself, ‘Better’ is a very personal song which showcases her honest, life-weathered songwriting.
“Better is the song for right now, it 100% reflects where I’ve been the last year and also where I’m going.
It’s a song of resilience, confidence and certainty. It’s a song I’m extremely proud of.”
This video of a live studio version showcases perfectly the art of emaé, known for her tastes for acoustic music.
The visual is a time-stopping instant, one heart-to-heart instant, a genuine moment of connection.
The soulful singer-songwriter teamed up with audio and mastering engineers Mark Allaway (Newton Faulkner, Jess Glynn) and Alex Balzama for the making of this song. The video was shot and edited by Joe Almond (Sofar Sounds).
Better is now available on all digital and streaming platforms.
Her debut single ‘Something Beautiful’ was released in 2015 and received critical acclaim all over the world.
MTV The Wrap Up praised the record that ‘oozes confidence, honesty and a relatability that is rare for newcomers’; Soulbounce USA noting its ‘luscious vocals and sweet harmonies’.
To accompany the track, emaé decided to release a cinematic music video, directed by Lee Jones (Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Rita Ora) and shot by Sam Pearce (Kate Nash, Rizzle Kicks) which was featured on VEVO’s front page.
The following year, London-based artist emaé unveiled her acoustic EP ‘Imperfect Words’ (premiered by Afropunk) and a second single ‘Know You’.
These two releases allowed her to keep the momentum going with support from BBC 6 Music and an opportunity to open for US artist Adia Victoria in the UK.
She also wrote and performed the soundtrack for motion picture ‘The Sunrise StoryTeller‘ created by 18 year old activist, Canadian filmaker Kasha Slavner, premiered at the United Nations in March 2017.
Finally 2017 started on a high note for emaé as she has been hand picked as ‘One To Watch in 2017′ by MOBO Awards.
