About Emma Scarr
"Emma Scarr is a singer-songwriter from Leytonstone, East London, writing folk music with an Americana flavour.
Americana from Leytonstone?..
We’re not sure how that works either!
Emma has been active on the live London scene for approaching two decades. A proficient player of the guitar, fiddle and banjo, in recent years she has concentrated on song craft.
Emma’s song-writing is influenced by the ‘Alt-Country’ trail-blazers, Steve Earle, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. Also by more recent Americana artists like Mary Gauthier and Gillian Welch. Closer to home, writers such as Steve Knightly of Show of Hands have inspired her, as well as all the music and players she has encountered in pubs and folk clubs in her musical journey of the past 20 years.
Emma’s debut album, “Angel Way” features songs drawn from a live repertoire developed over the last five years. Character and place driven, they are songs grounded in first-hand experience and observation of the banalities and triumphs of everyday life.
The understated narratives of her songs, forgiving and non-judgemental, have a sense of resignation but remain ultimately undefeated.
Beneath the measured surface is where the raw emotions bubble-
the real texture is to be found in the heart-broken shadows of this collection of songs."
