Emma Ballantine is the one to watch, as she is making her mark on the music industry.
With an alternative, unique style and powerful lyrics, her latest EP, Tourist, reached no. 15 in the iTunes Alternative chart.
She has been featured in Q Magazine and Glamour, and her music has been played by BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing. Emma has also been a finalist in the UK Unsigned Songwriter of the Year competition.
Her current project, Somebody’s Story, has an interesting spin, as she is involving her fans. Emma has created new records based on stories sent to her by other people. She said: “What had begun as a bit of an experiment began to gain momentum.” Now she has released her third track from the series. And is still looking for stories.
Update: Emma has now released her fourth and final track of ‘Somebody’s Story’. The track is called ‘Through Your Eyes’ and is inspired by the story of James, a boy with autism.
