"A breath of fresh air midst the fog of Americana influx,
John has a British quality that I find both essential and endearing,
Bright visions, sharp turn of phrase & easy on the ear!"
"Like the harmonica, good tune John & Nick......Edwyn"
A collection of newly penned songs from Somerset songwriter John Emery, this is a collaboration with musician Nick Nivotni, whom John has worked with on numerous projects spanning 20 years.
John's songs have been playlisted on London XFM, aired on HTV and praised by the likes of Edwyn Collins & Martin Stephenson.
Recorded at Bristol’s acclaimed Toybox Studios, this is a lo-fi alternative country folk offering, with sharp moments of pop and rich textures of harmonica, car boot keyboards and giddy guitars.
John describes his new material as being salvaged fragments of life, people, roads once travelled, faces, a child’s priceless one liner.
“I like the idea that someone living on the other side of the planet could get a rough idea of where and how you have lived over the years, purely through song".
