Hello there!


I'm Emma Swift. I'm a little bit country and a little bit folky and very passionate about old-school sounds. I'm a singer of songs, writer of melodies & maker of radio shows. I have spent the past two years playing gigs & gathering songs and am ready to record my debut EP in Nashville, TN. I'm excited!  But I need a lil' help to make it happen. Wanna be a part of it?


ABOUT  MY EP:-


Tennessee Rose is a collection of seven songs that I have worked hard to bring into the world. The songs are deeply personal, honest, heartbreaking, confessional and sometimes a little wry. I have wrestled with them, fought with them, nurtured them and now I want to share them. Which means it's time for me to get recording!


Recording is a scary, daunting and oh-so-exciting thing. Which is why I have asked my dear friend, mentor and fellow Aussie, Anne McCue to record and produce my first ever release.  Annie is a brilliant songwriter, guitarist and producer who has toured extensively in the United States with artists like Lucinda Williams and Heart. Her talent is undeniable, her taste is impeccable and I am so lucky to be working with her.


Anne has kindly agreed to produce my EP at Flying Machine Studio in April and May. We will be working together, alongside some of the finest musicians in Music City, to bring you something very special. But making music don't come cheap... Which is where you come in.


YOUR SUPPORT WILL HELP ME:-


++Record, mix and master the EP

++Press it to CD and package it beautifully

++Independently release the album around Australia and in the USA

In return for your generousity, you'll get the gift of music. As well as loads of love and gratitude from me and the joy of knowing you helped an independent Australian musician.


xx Emma
