Thanks for a great show on Saturday! We'll be posting pics soon!
Tomorrow, Emma will be stopping by WPOC 93.1 to play her single "I Thought You Were the One" w/ country radio DJ, St. Pierre! Hopefully we'll see Bob Delmont (of Delmont's Diner) too :) Then Wednesday, Emma is heading back out to LA with Sarah for the The ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO in LA! It's a super fun, inspiring music conference in Cali. Some of Emma's favorite songwriters & producers are speaking.
Can I have this framed and hang it on a wall in my house?
I know I think a lot and write and talk a lot... but... I think about all the things we've had to learn how to do - all the skills we've learned, not through talent, but through focus and practice - like driving - and everyone is expected to learn how to drive- and balancing your checkbook, and finding a way to do X - whatever it may be... What if your goal or your work was required - you *had* to learn how to do it - and it was "normal." imagine all the things we'd do if we thought we could.
I have a love affair with Def Jam artists. I don't know what it is - I love how eclectic and fun they all seem and like just down to have a good time. With music and fashion - it's this beautiful, bright undeniable combination. It's like you never know what they're gonna put on next ya know? I love that suspense - it's like, we're gonna tell you what we think is next and really good and you're never gonna see it coming. I love that. I think it's also this underlying celebration of diversity that I love. Thanks for that Def Jam.
Performing in Baltimore means so much to me and so does bringing people together. I think that should be celebrated more... I love seeing people who think they have nothing in common find common ground - that makes me so happy.
I love Katy Perry because of the way she always seems to turn her learning experiences or struggles into something positive... she always picks herself back up and through doing so, she lifts everyone else too.
Hi Guys, have you been to The Greene Turtle in Towson? They built an awesome roof deck over looking the city and it's so fun (sometimes I just go and sit there alone bc it's so nice (and the bartenders are cute) and I'm playing a show there on Saturday night.
Some of my best friends work there and I always go back when I'm in town and sometimes they'll put my songs on! hehe i love it.
The Greene Turtle Anniversary Party - April 19th - 8-11PM
APRIL 19TH - MARK YOUR CALENDARS !
THEN the following week (my uncles) - Mike White & Dave Mattheiss are playing a show there too!
The day before I left New York City, we recorded this video and used a beautiful, historic music school in Greenwich Village as our back drop - The Greenwich House of Music (http://www.greenwichhouse.org).
When I first got to the city I needed a place to practice. After a show at The Bitter End one night, my friend mentioned a space in Greenwich Village called The Greenwich House of Music where her boyfriend gave drum lessons - she said there were several rooms, full of pianos.
Places like this are treasures to me.. so much history- a sacred place for art and practice.. and because growing up I spent so much time in rooms like this, desperately looking for a piano or a place to be alone to write. And there it was, tucked away in the heart of the west village - full of pianos and empty rooms.
The rugs, the old piano with the broken keys, every little detail makes this space so beautiful and warm and historic.
"All Your Perfect Imperfections"
After shooting, I went to edit it with Monica (of the Boom House). I sort of became tense & wanted to change all these little details.. like 'ahh that's not flattering,' but then the more I watched it, the more I loved how imperfect it was..every little nuance became important. When you're making videos you can hire a special effects person to touch up blemishes and fix the lighting and all that, but then I just realized.. that's not what the song's about.. it's about embracing the whole picture... it's about loving someone for all of them. "all your perfect imperfections." so after sending over all these editing ideas, I realized I didn't want to change a thing. Thank you Monica for that and thanks to John Legend for writing this song. We hope you like it.
Thank you for watching. :)
