So great to have you for our interview today Emily. Tell us about your latest music ‘Yours Always’ and the impact it’s had on your fans so far?
Thank you so much for having me!! Yours Always has been a big steppingstone for me as it allowed me to explore and discover my sound. Working on 10 songs simultaneously helped push me further into the direction and style that really felt true to me. I was able to experiment more on certain songs that needed to be a part of something bigger and I don’t think I could have achieved or stumbled onto them if they were singles.
It’s been amazing to hear the reactions of my fans to this album! I love how excited they get and how they connect with the lyrics and style.
Do you get more attached to songs over others?
I definitely do get attached to certain songs over others, especially after working on an album….some songs just hit harder. That attachment does change over time. It’s so funny how that works. I have written songs that at the moment did not feel so relevant, but months or even years go by and suddenly that song is exactly what I needed to hear.
What makes your single and the time you spent on the music memorable for you?
Yours Always, the title song of the album, felt like going back to basics in a way but with all the musical growth I’ve had so far. I began writing songs in French and for the longest time felt uncomfortable writing in English, although it’s my native tongue, it felt foreign to me. I finally broke through that with my EP Cannibal which was all in English! I knew I had to begin my album with a French song. It felt like I was going back home!
Any tried or true techniques you have when creating the music?
I sometimes switch between languages when a line or section feels off. It sometimes helps me break through writer’s block.
What are you most looking forward to in 2023 with your new music?
I’ve been trying a slightly new style for my next song. I’m really excited to see what that brings and what projects it inspires.
Anything in 2022 that you experienced that you’re either leaving behind
or bringing with you into 2023?
The end of 2022 brought me costume/wardrobe design opportunities for a couple of short films and that’s something I definitely want to continue in 2023. Film has been such a big part of my creative process. Working on my first short film is what pushed me into writing and singing my own songs to expand on the stories I created with my fashion collections.
