Exclusive Interviw with Emily Daccarett
Your music is really thoughtful. How long do you contemplate what the subject matter will be?
Thank you so much! To be honest whatever emotional state I’m in at the time does influence the tone of my music and I feel that’s what helps me connect with what inspires me. I let the idea grow and slowly immerse myself in the story that comes from it.
Context is everything, do you make sure you are clear with your messaging? How do you do that?
Words can be so easily interpreted in many different ways, so I use the arrangement and instrumentation to really set the tone of the song. In my new single, Pieces, my lyrics and vocals are quite melancholy, but the instruments are very happy and fun which gives you a sense of hope and of moving on.
What music has been worth the wait for as long as you’ve been working on it?
My album, Yours Always, I truly feel has been worth the wait. We have been working on it for almost two years now and I’m so happy with what we were able to accomplish. The release date was pushed back a lot, and I’m so happy we did.
Will your fans be surprised with what you have coming up next?
I think they might be! I’ve pushed more towards what I really love and relate to when it comes to music. My musical influences are mainly from the 70s and 80s, David Bowie, Kate Bush, Jane Birkin, Serge Gainsbourg, and Stevie Nicks are some of my top! With this album I wanted to go all the way with character and story, having it feel like all the songs are tied together and feel very much like a soundtrack.
Who have you been in the mix with on your music?
I had some amazing musicians record this album. John Fumo, who has played with Neil Diamond, Crosby Stills & Nash, Smokey Robinson, Faith Hill, Whitney Houston, and James Brown to name a few, recorded all the trumpet bits in the album. I wanted the album to feel authentic and having seasoned musicians who lived and played through the late 70s and 80s, I feel it gives it just that.
What are you daring yourself to do as you get further along in your music?
I’m lining up live performances around LA, from smaller intimate acoustic settings to bigger shows like the one I’ll be doing this December at The Whiskey on Sunset Blvd.
What are you daring yourself to do as you get further in your career?
I’m working on adding a more theater-like quality to make live performances. I love theater and dance, to add this to my gigs has been another dream of mine.
How do you feel like your work is shaping your fans who are listening?
There is a vulnerability in my songs that I do not hide, and it lends itself to storytelling. I hope through my music I spark my listeners imagination and drive them to dream.
Give us all your music!
