In the short space of just 12 weeks Emma Ballantine is writing producing and releasing an ALBUM of songs composed of YOUR Real Life Stories Its’ a REALLY BIG Challenge for a songwriter to set herself, but Emma has already proven her songwriting skills with many tracks both live and on YouTube, which she has written and performs live in gigs around the UK and Europe .
WOW – WEEK6 – ALREADY !
Above: a clip from Emma’s ‘Somebody’s Story’ diary .. now in Week 6 Emma has already written some of the material – below is a clip of Emma working on the track ‘Secret Tunnel’ and the latest sneak peek into the ‘Story’ so far.. on a link here to her soundcloud page .
All in Good Time – Somebody’s Story
There’s a definite art to putting yourself on the frontline with a declaration that you have to publicly fulfil, having filmed and screened your intentions in advance of the result .. but that just attests to the confidence a professional songwriter gains in his or her art.. knowing that any writing session will be a new and exciting challenge to undertake in the name of experience, wisdom and in most cases thorough enjoyment ! – It’s word-craft at a level which is eventually judged by an audience and Somebody’s Story is prime and eloquent example of how to inventively campaign such an endeavour.
With a number of stories already received and the closing date for submissions now upon her, Emma has been very busy and, not surprisingly, has one almost complete song already. Watch out for updates as Emma gives us a sneak peek. Emma says the mix of tales has been diverse ranging from the tragic to the absolutely comedic and thus indicates the necessity for a songwriter to be comfortable with a range of styles, both lyrically and emotionally, in order to interpret the theme in a manner which can be embraced by a public who trust the artist in us to paint them an identifiable lyrical picture. We have no doubt that Emma, a successful singer/songwriter and musician already wields that lyrical paintbrush very effectively and we look forward to further updates on her ‘Somebody’s Story’ campaign.
Meanwhile Emma has published a video update of one of the tracks she is working on .. here’s a sneak peek ….
