“Something More” for You This Music Monday

emmeline2015

The time to Rise is coming soon.  After years in the local music scene, Emmeline is working on her first full length album, to be titled Rise.  Em (as her friends call her) has granted me the privilege of debuting “Something New” on the blog.  I suppose it’s likely the lead single from the upcoming album.
At first listen, it seems like classic Emmeline.  In my ways, that’s not an unfair statement.  The sweetness and beauty in her vocals is something her fans have come to expect.  Yet there’s something new and fresh in this song.  First off, the production on this song is above and beyond anything on any of her EPs.  The sound is fuller and richer than before.  Also, it feels like Emmeline has struck the perfect balance between her appreciation for popular music without succumbing to any of the cliched traps of the genre.  Her lyrics remain as sharp and honest as ever.

The Ghost looks forward to sharing more songs and news about Emmeline in the coming months.  In the meantime, I encourage you to listen to “Something More”.  The song is a bright ray of sunshine on this gloomy thing called Monday.  And I’m not talking about the forced, fake happy kind of sunshine.  The song radiates from a place of honesty, which makes this song a true ray of light.  Listen and I’m sure you’ll agree.

Emmeline, “Something More”

  • Monday Mixteen: 6/18/18 OK, so I’m a bit late in posting this on a Monday.  I do sort of have an excuse.  Yesterday, since The Ghost was lacking inspiration, I decided to make this an all request edition of the Monday Mixteen.  So really, it’s everyone else’s fault for not getting requests to me sooner, right?  That’s my [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 2/12/18 The Ghost has been rather busy with Directing the Programming at Deep Ellum Radio.  As a result, the blog has been a bit neglected.  So today, to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, I am bringing back the Monday Mixteen.  I put the word celebrate in quotes because anyone who knows me realizes that I don’t celebrate that [...]
  • Spreading the Love: Emmeline & M... The Ghost is bringing back a feature called Spreading the Love, but this time there’s a twist.  Instead of myself writing about an artist I feel is worthy of attention, a local musician will be writing about one of his/her local favorite artists.  It’s only appropriate that the first guest columnist is Ellen Hinton (aka [...]
