Description

A welcome re-release of 2005's out of print 'A Different Life' album by Dumfriesshire born singer Emily Smith who first made her mark on the Scottish music scene when she won the 2002 BBC Radio Scotland's Young Scottish Traditional Musician of the Year Award. In the same year she formed her own band and has since toured throughout Europe and Australasia.

In 2003 Emily graduated from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with an Honours degree in Scottish music. During this time she developed her skills on piano and accordion and established her own singing style drawing on the many sources available to her.

Emily has a warm and open stage manner and these same characteristics shine through in her musicianship. Her voice blends delicacy with surprising power and is equally alluring whether enriched by instrumental backing or unaccompanied. With an imaginative approach to instrumental arrangements she gives a contemporary edge to ancient songs.
