Emily Kate Drops A New EP
We had a sit down with Emily Kate to chat about her EP release, musical influences, and even her creative process. Here's what happened.
TSWS: Hi Emily Kate! Thank you for chatting with me today! You just released an EP! Will you tell us about it?
Emily: Yes my debut EP "All In" is out!! Comprised of 4 songs, All In features tracks "Giant, All In, Space and The Whole Time." Giant is an inspirational, soulful country pop song. Designed to encourage and remind the listener to believe in themselves against any odds. All In is about standing up for yourself in any situation, and is a reminder to walk away if you're not getting the respect you deserve. The third track, Space, is about the ones that got away. The what could have been, and the right place wrong timing.The last track, The Whole Time, I wrote the morning after a fun night out. It's an upbeat song about going out with friends and meeting someone who takes your breath away. Its lyrics are a twist on the common saying, ‘you had me at hello.’ and instead, this song is about someone having you ‘the whole time.’
Over the past two years, this EP "All In", was written from real experiences I’ve had in my life. These songs have taught me how to love myself, feel inspired, chase my dreams, have fun and grow as a person. They’ve been my reminder and helped me through heartbreaks, insecurities, and now they get to be yours. I hope that they can help you through your life as much as they have helped me.
TSWS: What was the creative process like for it?
Emily: The process of taking a rough voice memo of a song to a fully produced track is my favorite! I'm a huge believer in letting the music speak for itself and experimenting and having fun when creating a song. Each song off this EP started out with just acoustic guitar and a scratch vocal that was usually record the day the song was written.Then all the session musicians came in and played over that track, until we felt like we got the sound for each part of the song! These sessions in the studio are my absolute favorite, being able to feed off each other and seeing where the song takes us.
TSWS: Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
Emily: I find my influences have changed over time, however the biggest role models growing up were Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and Coldplay. Listening to their music really taught me how to tell a story within a song. Currently right now, my country musical influences are Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett, Maren Morris, and Carly Pearce.
TSWS: If you had to describe your music in three words, what would they be?
Emily: Inspiring, Truthful, and Relatable.
TSWS: What do you feel sets your music apart?
Emily: I feel like my voice has a unique sound to it. My lyrics have a truth to them that country songs do, however my sound isn't traditional country. I've got a smooth folk-pop sound that I've mixed into my songs to create something unique.
TSWS: Any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for?
Emily: Yes!!! I've been writing towards a new project within the last half a year. So there is a lot more music coming soon!
