Emilie Lierre - The Wanderer
EDIT: I accidentally deleted this post in the back-end of the website, so I thought why not use the opportunity to share this beautiful album again!
Emilie Lierre's stunning debut album The Wanderer is out now, and it really is something very special indeed!
Emilie Lierre’s low-toned, soulful, singing voice has a truly commanding presence. Backed up by the alluring chimes of her trustee Ukulele, the charisma that exudes from Emilie’s performances is truly electrifying!
A broken down relationship and a yearning to wander the earth lead Emilie Lierre to Australia where she busked to make a living and explored the southern hemisphere for 2 years. Appearances on ABC and Triple R radio in Melbourne gave her the confidence to pursue her musical dream and record an 8 track album on her return.
A nomad by nature, born in Manchester, brought up in Portsmouth, but comfortable anywhere, Emilie Lierre’s debut album The Wanderer takes the listener on a journey of their own through her thoughts on life, love, and the world around us.
Until now these 8 original songs have only ever been heard live or on the streets. And whilst a ‘full band’ album is in the works, our introduction to Emilie Lierre is a purely acoustic album featuring nothing but a lightly strummed Ukulele and Emilie’s trademark deep soulful singing voice. Each song is recorded in just one take, stripped back to the way it was originally intended.
This is an honest recording in every sense, portraying the message that Emilie’s music is made with purpose rather than frivolity or exuberance. And the results are beautiful!
