Emily Hackett - As It Comes

This EP will certainly wet listener’s appetites
Emily was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Influenced by many musical genres whilst growing up Emily was writing her own songs at the age of twelve. Emily’s music blends many different genres of music together with Emily preferring to sings songs she likes no matter what their style and sound. Refusing to be pigeon-holed Emily has a distinctive voice that stands out from the crowd. Her songs are mostly written from a female perspective but they will automatically appeal to listeners of all ages and sexes because they are of such a high quality. Emily’s songs are written about obsession, frustration, life and love. Emily’s new EP features four classy tracks that really allow Emily to show off her singing and writing talents. The EP opens with a song called Nashville. This song has a country/folk feel echoed in the instrumentation. Emily’s vocals are interesting and full of character. This song sounds thoroughly modern yet because of its injection of folk it also retains something of a traditional sound. I Want A Boy has a totally different sound to the opening track. This is most definitely a modern country song with fresh uplifting vocals. A rather charming song that is easy on the ear. Damage Free is a heavy rock infused country song. This song will appeal to fans of rockier rowdy country music. Emily really belts out this track proving that she is anything but a one trick pony. Runaway is similar in style. Once again this is a heavy rocky country song. It is a shame that there are not more songs on this EP as it feels like it ends before it has really begun. Emily certainly teases and tempts listeners with these offerings and the promise of something really good to come in the future.
