I want a love that swallows me whole
and I want a love that burns my soul
and I won’t stop till I’ve got it
The first time I ever heard Emma Ballantine sing, she pulled a guitar strap over her shoulder and began to strum the opening chords of the most #AWESOME song “The Love I Seek”
EMMA BALLANTINE – The Love I Seek
The hook lines and the melody were so powerful that the song stayed with me for days after our first meeting on a songwriters bootcamp weekend and I found myself humming it quite so frequently on the way home that I headed straight for a search engine to see what else she had been up to. Stands to reason when someone already writes and performs their own material that Vevo or YouTube will have an account of them somewhere, and OH YES !! I wasn’t gonna be disappointed. Turns out that along with several of her other independently written songs, Emma has already released a music video for this track and it’s just as #AWESOME as the song itself.. the storyboard tracing her on a journey from barmaid to spotlight down corridors and up flights of stairs to finally arrive on the stage for the final lines of the song ! I cant remember exactly how many hours I had it on replay but it’s still as distinctive and vivid in my mind as I find myself humming it frequently over and over again.
