Olivia Ellen Lloyd is an indie folk artist from West Virginia, USA who tells a deeply personal tale in her new song Emily.
By Graeme Smith
The song is a dedication to her childhood friend, who sadly passed nine years ago. Today would have been her birthday. It’s a lovely tribute, steeped in imagery and storytelling, sung with authentic emotion and accompanied by acoustic guitar and flashes of electric organ.
It’s a difficult and powerful thing to turn grief into something positive like music and Olivia has done a wonderful job of it with Emily. You can check it out below.
