Writing with her heart on her sleeve, London’s Emily Laing draws inspiration from her own experiences to create music which is intrinsically human at its core. Her debut release “Hey It’s You” is a soft, folk-tinged ballad detailing the intoxicating sparks of a romantic encounter.
Inspired by traditional folk songs, Emily has always had a passion for storytelling. “Hey It’s You” is an intimate narrative from the young songwriter, filled with rolling drum patterns and languid guitar melodies. Sprinkled with a light patter of percussion, her delicate vocals float effortlessly over the soothing soundscape – creating a soft haven for her listener to reside in.
“It’s about meeting someone for the first time and that connection you have with them almost instantly” Emily explains. “How a moment can exist between two people and no one else knows about it”.
