Emma Stephenson – I Wrote You a Song Album Review
Today we are featuring another promising alternative/jazz music artist; EMMA STEPHENSON, from Australia. We have reviewed her magical album; I Wrote You a Song, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.
Emma Stephenson is a promising songwriter and pianist I discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three months ago with three songs; “Too Many Words (feat. Liam Budge)”, “Ode to Free Speech (feat. Liam Budge)”, and “Mercy of the Moon (feat. Kristin Berardi)” off from her full-length debut album; “I Wrote You a Song,” which was released not long ago in 2020. As you might also remember from my previous articles, I am a big fan of easy listening acoustic/natural sounding music with innovative ideas, and Emma Stephenson’s album is an excellent example of it. Now, please give it a listen while reading the rest of the article.
The feeling and the taste of Emma Stephenson’s music immediately reminded me of an artist that metal music fans would remember; Tori Amos. I haven’t been following her for thousands of years now, but I know her by her great piano covers of some golden songs such as Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. Emma Stephenson has similar easy-going vibes with her, yet with much more progressive and rich compositions. Emma’s music is simply showing advanced musicianship and intelligent songwriting skills above everything else. She put together everything in a very tasty manner on this album that people with every kind of musical taste would enjoy. All songs have different stories, different taste, and atmosphere, which instantly pulls the listener into its world. As a metalhead, it would be the right thing to say that this is the music of gentle people. I only sense brutal classiness from these magical tunes, nothing else.
Technically, I Wrote You a Song album has top-class standards (and classiness) in every way. The instrumentation is where the genius lies mostly, and everything was recorded very professionally. It sounds clean, clear, natural, atmospheric, very well handled, mixed, and in great harmony. Like I said earlier, every song was performed with a different vocalist. They all have something in common (feeling-wise) and also differences between them, which is admirable. You never feel like too much, or losing the excitement of this music.
On the other hand, some of Emma’s passages have reminded me of the progressive rock genius Steven Wilson, and some of his bands like Blackfield and Porcupine Tree. Her music has got the potential to teach listeners with her understanding of music, open new windows in their minds, in their visions, just like Steven Wilson has done for me for many years. And these were the actual reasons why I wanted to feature Emma Stephenson here on Metalhead Community.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I have had a great time listening to Emma Stephenson. I Wrote You a Song is a promising debut to her career, which will make her and her family proud forever.
