Don’t Miss the Boat – for Emma Ballantine and the STREAMATHON

  • Comments Off

I was joined by some seagulls for my latest video… New video live now – and a favour to ask…

Hi everyone, and I hope you’re having a good weekend. Last Monday I was lucky enough to be one of three artists invited by BBC Introducing in the West to record a live session for them – with a slight difference: the recording took place on a boat! They filmed one video of my song Tourist, which you can view below, and you can hear the full live session – including new song Harmonise here (listen from 01:06:05)

The other news this week is that the Somebody’s Story EP is now available on Spotify. A few people who prefer streaming to downloading have asked how they can help support the new record, and a friend suggested holding a ‘Stream-a-thon’ to give the tracks a kick-start on Spotify. This Thursday (18th May) you can get involved by streaming one of the tracks on repeat to help it get its first 1,000 plays – and maybe even attract the attention of the people who manage Spotify’s playlists. if you’re a Spotify user, there are instructions at the very bottom of this email on how to take part.

It may seem like a strange thing to ask, but getting noticed on Spotify is hugely important now, and half the battle is getting those first plays! The support would mean so much, and getting playlisted would be as big a deal as going to no.1 if the experiment works!

If you’ve already helped on iTunes or bought the CD, then please don’t worry about doing this too – it’s really just a way for those who prefer streaming to help welcome the new record to the world.

I will be in touch soon with a rather exciting announcement that’s currently in the works, but in the meantime, enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Thanks to Sam and Rich at BBC Introducing in the West for having me!


Join the Stream-a-thon!



First of all, thanks for taking part! Here’s how to get involved:


Stream this track, Harmonise, as much as possible this Thursday (you can switch your computer’s volume to mute once your ears get tired or you’re off to bed – but don’t mute the track on Spotify or it will pause the track) Share this link to the song with your friends and family on social media and encourage them to have a listen too: To stay up to date with activity on the day, click attending on this Facebook event:
