Emma Stevens Talks About Her Current UK Tour
Hailed as “Just Magical” by the late great Sir Terry Wogan, life has been something of a whirlwind for the down to earth surfer chick, Emma Stevens, since she embarked on her solo career in 2012; bursting onto the scene with her distinctively catchy pop melodies, fused with folk instrumentation and a touch of country. The increasing popularity of this uniquely versatile “what you see is what you get” artist is now undeniable, thanks to almost three million Spotify plays, and over a million video views on the back of four EP and three album releases, with four consecutive singles play-listed by Radio 2 and a jaw-dropping performance to a crowd of 40,000 at the BBC’s Festival in a Day at Hyde Park. Now Emma Stevens talks to PR Stable about her current UK tour:
1. Emma Stevens, in a nutshell can you tell us about yourself?
I’m a singer songwriter with a love for nature, the environment and animals! I play six instruments and love surfing!
2. If we dive into your current album, what sound can we expect to find?
I made a trip to Nashville to write and met some amazing musicians. Expect a fuse of country and folk with catchy pop melodies.
3. You’ve just kicked off your UK tour called the Emma Stevens ‘To My Roots Spring Tour’, what can we expect from that?
I’m playing as part of a three piece set up (mandolin, bass, guitar, ukulele). Expect soaring harmonies and an emotional rollercoaster. I also love to talk about the songs and the reason behind them.
4. You also plan to bring some live pop up gigs to the towns on your tour, tells us about that.
I want to raise awareness for world environment day, so I’m hoping to busk in as many towns as I can before the shows, handing out sunflower seeds and spreading a bit of sunshine and positivity.
5. And the sunflowers, you’re giving out sunflower seeds at these live pop-up gigs?
I have a song called Sunflower which I wrote about losing my mum, I love sunflowers, I think they bring happiness and joy so it seemed like the perfect combination.
6. You clearly love the environment, if you were prime minister, what environmental plans would you put in place?
I would find it a very hard job! But I would plant more trees, and make plastic packaging for vegetables/seeds/fruit/cereals illegal in supermarkets. I think we are slowly beginning to get there.
7. You’re a surfer chick! How did you get into that?
l’ve always loved the ocean, ever since I was little. I used to boogie board and eventually the boards got bigger! Now I love long boarding.
8. What can we expect from Emma Stevens over the next year?
10. Any final messages?
I hope to see some of you on tour this year! Much love and happiness x
