Hyde Park Festival… TOMORROW!!!



I can’t even begin to express how EXCITED I am for tomorrow. I am sooooo blown away by the support from everyone – I have had some lovely messages and tweets. HUGE HUGE HUGE thanks to BBC Radio 2 for giving me the opportunity to headline the BBC Introducing Stage… Must just say thanks to BBC Introducing South for being incredible and supporting me so much, and to Sir Terry Wogan and his team (especially Ste Softly) for inviting me to perform live on BBC Radio 2 at 11am!

Here is a little bit of info…

If you were unable to get tickets you can watch my performance as a LIVE STREAM here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/events/ed6q2m – I will be on stage at 7pm!

You can join in the fun on twitter:





I believe that you can also see “highlights” from 11pm on Sunday evening if you press the red button on BBC. But that may just be of Jack Johnson being AMAZING (can you tell I’m a huge fan?)…


Expect a mammoth blog tomorrow night/Monday morning about the whole experience!

Now I should try and sleep…  That’s going to be hard!!

Lovveeeeee and sparkles!!

Em xxxx

Clare Balding BBC RADIO 2!!

If you missed it, listen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b038gymj

Wow!! What a morning! I can’t quite believe in the space of 3 days I have been in the BBC Radio 2 studio’s twice… Today I was interviewed by the legendary Clare Balding!! What a beautiful, lovely lady she is!! I played my song “Sunflower” which is about dealing with the loss of my Mum. It can be a really hard song to get through because of where it came from and its poignancy so I was lucky enough to be joined by my good friend Sam, who plays lead guitar in my backing band and Pete Woodroffe (my co-writer and producer). Thanks for the snap below, Pete!



Here is a picture of us before we played, and during… radio2


I can’t tell you how exciting this is – right I have 3 EP’s all in the top 100 UK main iTunes Album charts… charts


Achieving this as an unsigned artist just absolutely blows me away. A massive thank you to BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 2 for everything…

Bring on EP 4!! I may just have to put Sunflower on it…




I can’t quite get over the morning I have had! BBC Radio 2.. Chris Evans Breakfast Show… I used to listen to him on my way to school every morning and only dreamt that one day I would actually be able to play my songs live in his studio on National Radio! I also had the great pleasure in meeting David Walliams… WOW! What an amazing man! Talented flautist  “Simenon” joined in on my song “A Place Called You” on the second time round playing it and we had so much fun…  LISTEN HERE! I start at around 1 1/2 hours into the show… http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0384855

Here I am in the studio with David…






Chris Evans… YOU ARE AMAZING! After my performance I was invited to play Carfest…

SO EXCITED! http://www.carfest.org/page.cfm 



… Since the interview I have all three EP’s in the top 15 of the iTunes Singer Songwriter Charts! WOW!

I want to say a massive thanks to all my friends, family and supporters out there who have been tweeting, facebooking and generally being lovely and wonderful. I can’t tell you how much it has touched my heart and how LUCKY I feel to have you all on this journey with me.

I just wanna also say a HUGE thank you to my Mum – who I just know would be SO PROUD and is shining like the angel she is right now, Pete Woodroffe, Flemming Associates, Claire Paxton-Rider, Absolute Marketing and Distribution, Alex Simpson, Dad, Ellen, and my amazing band who tour with me in my little red bug that breaks down! You have no idea how much you all mean to me!

BBC RADIO 2 PLAYLIST – A Place Called You!

I couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I woke up to 3 text messages from my team yesterday all saying “Emma, you make the playlist again!” It is the most humbling feeling in the world to know that NATIONAL RADIO… (BBC RADIO 2!!!!!) Like my songs enough to put them on their playlist for all their 15.3 million weekly listeners to hear. I am so grateful to everyone who keeps believing in me and supporting me. Being an unsigned (broke) artist can be so hard, but life is about ups and downs – this is possibly the biggest “UP” I could have imagined right now as far as my career goes. 🙂 HAPPYYYYYY!!!!!
