Emma Swift - Seasons

Emma Swift - Seasons
Flaxen of hair, soul-tough and pretty as a diamond, with a tear in her voice filtered through ’70s mariachi static, Emma Swift’s music hearkens back to the golden age of music when singers sang your life back to you. It is a voice of pure heartbreak, delivering songs that are equal parts heart-worn and careworn, modern, insouciant, witty and feminist.

A lonesome-voiced singer and award-winning radio broadcaster in her hometown Sydney, a move away from Australia to Nashville, Tennessee inspired Emma to write and record her solo debut.

One of Australia’s finest sad-song-singers, Emma’s voice has always required the kind of backing that would do it justice, and thanks to Nashville-based Australian expat Anne McCue and a cast of A-team Nashville session pickers, Swift’s songs have been wrought from (pedal) steel and amber, turquoise and honey.

“Emma Swift possesses one of those voices that draws you in with its ache and emotional pull, characteristics that are essential to the creation and performance of authentic country music. She’s one of those songwriters that can write and deliver songs that will have you crying alcohol stained tears, swaying along to stories of love won and lost.” – Chris Familton No Depression

About this track...

Short and sweet and oh-so-sad, where there’s hope there’s despair, where there’s love there’s the lack of it. Vintage transistor radios, mariachi static, classic Nashville.
