She is currently writing new songs to add to recent singles “Nice Eyes”, “Feel Love” and “Where we left off” for her second EP; due out later this year.
A recent reviewer made these comments about Emily’s track “Nice Eyes”:
“Emily Lockett’s Nice Eyes makes for a beautiful introduction to the artist’s music and songwriting for those who are yet to stumble upon it.
The delicacy and evolving warmth of the song creates the perfect folk-pop ambiance within which listeners can find themselves calmed and comforted.
Emily’s voice leads with a certain softness that appears undoubtedly genuine, and with that comes an inclination to really listen to the lyrics – at which point the authenticity of her writing and her whole approach to creativity reaches even greater heights.”
A lovely review which certainly makes one want to find out more about this artist from the UK.
