Emma Ballantine–New EP & UK Tour Dates

EMMA BALLANTINE

NEW EP – ‘TOURIST’

RELEASED – SHUT UP JO – 24TH JULY 2015

Singer songwriter and multi – instrumentalist, Emma Ballantine is set to release a new EP on her own Shut Up Jo label on Friday the 24th of July 2015.

 

The ‘Tourist’ EP, recorded at Monnow Valley Studio in Wales with producer Peter Waterman, is a CD and digital release and is the follow up to her recent debut ‘Flying Machine’. The new EP features five stunning tracks including the ‘The Love I Seek’ and a unique take on Suzanne Vega’s ‘The Queen And The Soldier’ and is the perfect introduction to Emma’s shape-shifting vocals and shimmering guitar sound.

 

EP TRACKLISTING:

1 THE LOVE I SEEK

2 PERFECT CRIME

3 TOURIST

4 THE QUEEN & THE SOLDIER

5 FALL

 

Taking her inspiration from the likes of Kate Bush, Florence and the Machine Laura Marling, and Agnes Obel, the London based singer can flick between darkness and light, delicate to dangerous. An established and popular artist on the UK and European live scenes, her melodic lines and insistent hooks have also picked up support from BBC 6 Music and a range of London radio stations, with Resonance FM describing her as “a unique voice among modern songwriters”.

 

Having just returned from a short tour to Germany, Emma will play fourteen UK dates this summer to mark the launch of the new record. This will include solo shows across the Midlands and the South and a launch event in London at The Bedford in Balham on 23rd July with full band (drums, bass, electric guitar and cello) and guest performances from a trumpeter and a choir.
