ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Describing her sound as atmospheric and one of her influences as trip-hop Emma Webb combines the two to create an amazing beautiful sound....." Daz Walsh Sheffield Music Scene .. .. "Emma has a knack for beautiful titles. No more than 'Orpheus' who in Greek mythology was chief of music and poetry, a delightful touch to a delightful song. If Orpheus was chief then maybe Emma is his pupil. If she keeps producing tracks as stunning as this then maybe one day she will take his mantle" Daz Walsh. .. .. "Haunting, dark and wonderful" Profound Productions. .. .. "I've just heard your tracks on myspace - they are amazing!" Jeff Grainger, Dandelion Radio .. .. "youre doing a great job by the sounds here so i am sure good stuff will come your way v soon.. simon x" Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins).

The album is a lot about love and loss and spiritual renewal. It is a kind of magic voyage with songs about Orpheus and the underworld, encounters with magical animal totems and flights on magic carpets. I like playing around with interesting sounds and am trying to create and intimate, fragile almost low-fi feel as if I'm singing to you in the same room. It probably is a bit like this as I tend to record in my room at night time!! Some of the songs are very intimate and fragile with just vocals, glockenspiel. I tried to play with the tension between full on sound and silence. I like contrasting delicate instruments and vocals with bursts of raw, powerful guitar and electronic sounds. I like the gaps and space in music : ).

I have been told that my music has a folktronica vibe going on and I hope that my interest in Church music, choral voices and world music is also in there somewhere!!!

Beautifully thought out and and poetic
I just bought this album and it hasn't been off my stereo since. This album is definitely not background music. It draws you in from the first note. Emma Webb has a really expressive voice a bit reminiscent of Beth Gibbons. The instrumentation is beautifully thought out and the lyrics are heartfelt and poetic. Although Emma undoubtedly has her own unique style, this album has a hint of Portishead and Dead Can Dance about it. I would recommend listening to Soulchime on moonlit evenings with a glass of wine. A cri de coeur which demands to be heard.
