It is February 23rd 2014 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
Described as "one of the great quiet achievers of the Sydney scene", Sydney, Australia's Emma Davis is certainly a musician to watch out for throughout 2014.
The unbelievably talented singer/songwriter "has been gradually leaving her mark since moving to Australia nine years ago".
On October 30th 2010, Emma released her debut, self-titled record. "Her debut record, co-produced in a small bedroom studio in Newtown, a suburb of Sydney, Australia, showed an impressive display of intricate guitar work, careful production and honest storytelling. It went on to receive national radio play and some very glowing reviews."
Fans have been going nuts over Emma's unforgettable music since day one. Acquiring over one and half thousand 'likes' on Facebook, as well as [just over] fifteen thousand views on Youtube thus far, it is evident that Emma's original tune, Stand Tall, is definitely worthy of this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
Emma officially released Stand Tall on October 23rd 2013 on her Bandcamp page. And, although it looks as though some new music is in the works for this year, time cannot go fast enough while I wait.
"After the release of her debut EP, and after a string of nation-wide events, Emma went on to support the likes of Husky, Matt Corby and Andy Bull. She even had some of her songs featured in nationwide television ads, had numerous festival appearances and was also chosen as a finalist for a Sydney Music Arts And Culture award."
What drew me in immediately with Emma's music is her [always] perfect vocals, paired with her almost 'dreamy' melodies. Every aspect of each of her songs is honestly unbelievable, always showing the pure talent this young woman truly has.
Since the release of her debut record, Emma has been busy working on her next release. Infact, this past September of 2013 she flew to Cairns, Australia where she recorded Stand Tall, this week's 'Song of the Week', with producer and musician Mark Myers (The Middle East, The Starry Field). "The result is a mature and complex new single, Stand Tall, with Emma leaving her strictly acoustic background to explore a wider world of sound."
So, you will definitely want to check out Emma Davis this year. Her music is absolutely stunning and, quite honestly, it is just a matter of time before she dominates the music industry all around the world.
Emma released an official music video for Stand Tall, this week's 'Song of the Week', to her Youtube Channel on December 15th 2013. And, with just under one thousand views already, be sure to check it out, here:
