In a musical landscape that often seems to present ‘nothing new under the sun’ it is so refreshing to discover new talent that offers a distinct sound. For us Scottish songstress, emaé (pronounced em- may), is one of those talents.
We’re loving emaé’s blend of folk, soul, and pop coupled with clear vocals and message filled lyrics. She is praised amongst industry peers for her fantastic vocal performances and song-writing prowess which has earned her worthy comparisons to stars such as Emeli Sande and Corrine Bailey Rae.
Her debut song, ‘Something Beautiful’, was released back in 2014 to critical acclaim. It received mainstream support from BBC introducing, Vevo, MTV, and others. Her follow-up single, ‘Know You’, was released in July 2015 has been gathering widespread support. With this track emaé attempts to connect further with her listeners revealing her fear of linking with new people. According to emaé, “if I’m honest, that’s something that still scares me profoundly and it takes a lot to change my solitary tendencies but this song is my way of capturing the feelings that I experience when I finally get over that hurdle, and let new people in”.
Both singles are available now for download on iTunes and Bandcamp.
