Inspired by a trip to the Big Apple, where she was brought up, Emily imagines a New York-based love affair in Brooklyn. Though a daydream, it’s made concrete through her storytelling lyrics, with plenty of attention to detail, and made all the more vivid through her expressive vocals and its intimate-feeling video.
Surrounded by music her whole life, between Los Angeles and New York, Emily started her career in Nashville. She draws influence from a couple of other brilliant song writers – Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder.
