If there is one trait all great artists share, it’s a sense of restlessness. It is a constant hard-wired drive to continually take their music in new directions – testing the waters, finding new sounds, creating music in new ways. And it is something that has always been at the heart of Emma Bosworth’s music.
It is a sound that’s all over her debut solo long player ‘Coming Up For Air’ which she released while 8 months pregnant with her first son late 2014. The record cemented Emma’s reputation as a truly impressive artist by managing to stomp all over the conventions of the ‘singer-songwriter’ genre.
And now, after many musical projects in between, Brisbane’s garage folk songstress is returning with ‘People Get Ready’, a striking first release from her forthcoming sophomore record anticipated this Spring. On a first listen to ‘People Get Ready’ you’d be forgiven for thinking Emma is reflecting on a testing trial of love lost, however the pop-glimmering track’s take home message is “that we all deal with heavy stuff in our lives in such diverse ways and something that might trigger one person into a spiral of depression, might leave another unscathed.”
