Ashley: What are you plans for the future?
Em: My plans for the future I would say, since I’m currently finishing up the album, afterwards to just get out there and start doing it. You know, playing shows, building up a fan base, and just growing as an artist. I want to go as far as I can and continue what I love to do for as long as I can do it, as a career and just for the rest of my life.
Ashley: It sounds like you’re really passionate about singing, could you express that passion in words?
Em: I mean in a sense, I don’t want it to sound super cheesy, but music to me just kind of runs through me. It just feels a part of me that I can’t let go, if I even tried to let go of it. It’s my vent it’s what I do at the end of the day when I’m tired, I just go to the back room and I just start singing. Or I just sit down I start writing my thoughts down. It’s my way of expressing who I am as an artist and who I am as a person and I would say that music is just such a beautiful art that it’s always just been a passion for me.
Ashley: So do you write your own songs?
Em: I co-write, yes. I work with a producer, Jim McGorman, and there’s been a few other artists as well, we play off of each other. And so normally I would give him the song concept and then we work together on sound and direction of a song and then we start going back and forth together with lyrics, what we want to say, you know choruses, melodies, everything. So it’s a team effort, multiple minds to one thing can just make the final product even better.
Ashley: How did you get in touch with McGorman?
Em: That was kind of spontaneous in a sense. I’d been in L.A. working with experimenting with other producers for different sounds, trying to kind of find out where I wanted to sit in the music business and through a consultant, he had known Jim, and we kind of just set my music over. Didn’t really here much for a month then just randomly got a call back saying “hey this guy listened to this music, he would love to meet with you and see where it goes from there.” And then so we sat down, started talking and just kind of, from there just started.
