Adelaide musician Emily Davis is working towards releasing her second album. She’s getting deeper and getting darker. Life changes and a new direction have inspired this bluesy roots artist to cross over to the other side. Emily is looking deeper into her personal experiences and right back into her family history. The poignant message of her new works: With true pain comes true love.
Expanding her sound scape is Emily’s number one aim. She will sing about love, she will sing about life, and from an older and wiser perspective she will draw from a part of her family’s gypsy past to bring forth a western gothic sound.
While working on her new album from her home studio, Emily will be rejoined by the band that backed her in her first album, The Sunday Brides. The new album will include more collaboration with artists from SA and across Australia.
The Wheel of Frank Confessions was Emily’s successful Adelaide Fringe act in 2010. She teamed up with Emma Dean (Bris) for an adlib show where each song was inspired by audience suggestions, and the spin of a wheel featuring the seven deadly sins. Emily has plans to revisit the Wheel of Frank Confessions, taking the show on tour from Adelaide and through the eastern states.
On Saturday June 5, Emily Davis will be playing with The Sunday Brides in the front bar of The Gov. Join her for a sneak peak at some of the songs written for her new album, along with some old favourites.
