A message from Emme:
"In 2016 I released a free EP and did a school tour in my local area. The EP was called ‘Light in the darkness’.
My late husband Tony passed away in the midst of this school tour and I went to a place of grief.
I wrote this song for Tony back in NYC in 2007 shortly after becoming his friend. I performed it all over with my band Emme & the Swedes. In 2011, while pregnant with our first little one I brought the song to Bryan Bell (Ekkopark and The Jordan Luck_band. He wrote gorgeous music for it and said I needed a bridge. So I wrote the lyrics for a bridge that he created musically.
The song has never been officially released until now.
I felt as it’s coming up to the 5 year anniversary of Tony’s passing and this was his favourite song of mine... It’s feels right. My soul and heart feel good knowing I can share this song across all platforms.
There’s a place and time for everything.
The EP / physical CD with all four songs(including ‘Peter Pan’ will be available worldwide for purchase via my website starting April 28th.
