This week i uploaded episode 2 from my Solo Yolo series i shot last summer, check it out!
Hello, yes, again i decided to upload some more tracks i recorded. The first was i song i uploaded to YouTube that i wrote for Attack On Titan Season 1 that i never put on bandcamp, so since Season 2 has kicked off, i figured now is the perfect time!
The next set of tracks are covers i did, this will probably be an ongoing thing and i’ll update it regularly. Of course i will post on here whenever i do add a song. The idea behind a few of the covers on here will be a little rough and ready, they will be recorded on my phone for the moment, and if i upload a video to YouTube, that will also be a one take unedited thing too. The reason for this is because i don’t have a laptop capable for editing my ideas at the moment, and since i am feeling a creative flow, i don’t want that to hinder me.
Anyway, please enjoy! And i will keep you updated as and when. Thanks!
A few years ago i was writing and recording a EP, and for whatever reason at the time, i decided i hated everything about it and gave up. Recently, i stumbled across a bunch of these tracks, and with hindsight regretted my decision. So, here they are, The Emma Hallows songs that i kept telling people were happening, almost 4 years later.
At the time, i think i was battling with myself and very much being my own worst critic. I had it in my head that i needed everything to be a certain way and if it wasn’t, it wasn’t happening. Which looking back i know had the best intentions, but getting older something happened i didn’t expect. These songs became a snapshot of a time in my life, better than a photograph or a video, because you can feel emotion through a song in a way that you can’t feel anywhere else. When i listen to these now at 26, after years without them, i remember every thought, every feeling, every moment, and everything i was trying to say, these are probably the closest thing i have to a diary of my late teens and early 20s. Even though at the time i may have been putting my heart on my sleeve singing these things that were so difficult for me to talk about back then, now i have this great sense of fondness and they warm my heart in a way i never had the foresight to think of. The Great thing about being a musician is this journey i’m on never fails to surprise me at every turn.
May they fill your heart with warmth akin to mine.
For my engagement project at University, my project partner Mike and I decided to write a song! It’s a little rough around the edges, but we had fun and it was completely different to what anyone else in our class was doing. Enjoy!
Hey! How’s it going? It’s been a hot moment since i last had a chat, or since we ‘shot the shit’. Thought i’d start by saying, thank you for joining me over at my brand spanking new website! I used to use Tumblr, but for a while now i’ve not been too happy with the platform and stopped using it pretty much, So i figured i would transfer all my stuff over to WordPress and give that a bash for a while, as the platform seem’s a little more grown up and a lot cleaner. That said, you’ll have to be patient while i get all my URLs up and running.
What’s new with me? Nothing too big, but a lot has happened since i last did a real update. in the last 12 months i travelled across Italy…
[Top of Mt Vesuvius, Napoli Italy, Summer 2016]
went back to school, moved in with Andrew, quit my job and then last month i nearly died…
[I know i look happy in this photo, but i most definitely was not]
among other day to day things that have happened too. Anyway, it’s been great catching up, i’ve written lots of stuff over the past few months, and since i have a handy little netbook to use they might make their way online. Unfortunately, i struggle with video editing as i don’t have anything that can handle it, but if i can post new videos, i will. For now though, its been great chatting! さようなら！
I went to Italy last summer alone to explore, and here is the first video finally! WAHOO! This is me hanging out around Pompeii and seeing what was going down there.
Like and sub for the rst of the series 😀
Hey, after i got back from Italy i wrote a Stranger Things FanFic song. People seem to like these and it been a while since i’ve done one so i finally had some time to upload it this morning. I’m really rusty, but enjoy anyway!
My new video went up yesterday. This time we’re exploring Hong Kong Park and checking out the view from Victoria Peak!
Here’s the next installment of my 10,000 Miles series. This one is pretty much my morning at the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple in Hong Kong. It was beautiful.
Sorry it took so long for me to get this but, but better late than never i guess.
