Emily is now based back in the UK recovering from a year-long severe bipolar episode.  You can read her latest blog.  When she has fully recovered her mental health in the coming months, she will be singing her songs again in intimate house concerts and gigs for mental health/community organisations and groups around the UK, but not touring as before.  Emily’s albums and books are no longer available to order online. Her six studio albums, including ‘A Light To Follow’ which was released in February 2023 just before her return to the UK, can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music and other digital music platforms. All the lyrics for all Emily’s albums can be found on her website.

If you want to watch Emily perform her songs live, you can find the videos of both sets of her gig at Eudlo Hall in Australia in October 2020 on page 2 of her videos (also on her YouTube channel). This gig, performed to a restricted audience of 43 people during the Covid lockdown, featured Christian Dunham on bass, Sarah King on violin/viola and Louise King on cello.  You can download for free the album and lyric booklet for ‘Live at Eudlo Hall’ here.

A short documentary about the making of Emily’s seventh album ‘A Light To Follow’ in the Australian bush (released just before she returned to the UK last year) is available on her videos page or on her YouTube channel.

You can also hear the 15 minute BBC Wiltshire radio broadcast (recorded in Australia in 2022) of Emily’s programme about her fourth book ‘Words With Wings’, introducing and playing a selection of the poems (accompanied by her own original piano music) from the digital album that accompanies the book.

I have not
Died or disappeared
It’s just this
Rollercoaster
Has been
The biggest
Of them all
So you did not
See me
When I flew above the clouds
And when I fell
I fell so fast and so far
You did not see me
Then either
And then the hole
I fell into
Was so deep and so dark
I disappeared for a long time
And then when I came
Shooting up again
You were looking
The other way
I’m sure someday
My ride will run out
Part of me hopes
It comes to rest
On solid ground
So this time
You can see me
Can see I have not
Died or disappeared
Just been reborn.

Emily’s new album ‘A Light To Follow’ is released today.  The album, recorded at Emily and Christian’s home on a goat farm in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, features 13 new songs including the radio single ‘Sunshine’.  CDs will be dispatched from the UK and from Australia.  If you don’t have a CD player you can still support Emily’s music by ordering the digital album from Bandcamp.  

We have also published a book to accompany the album, including behind the scenes photographs of the recording process and Emily’s life in the Australian bush, her own liner notes, works in progress, mix notes and lyrics.  The book includes an album download card so you don’t need a CD player to enjoy Emily’s new songs. 

The CD and book are both available to order now from Emily’s shop.

My seventh album ‘A Light To Follow’ is out today.  

It has been three years in the making.  The writing, arranging, recording, editing and mixing has all taken much more time than I’d ever imagined.  But I know it wouldn’t be the record it is if any of the steps along the way had been different. 

The songs on this album are all pieces of my heart.  I hope they bring you some joy, some comfort.

I am hugely grateful to Shane Nesic, Sarah King and Dan Lyons for adding their creativity and talent to this record.  Thank you to Nigel Butler for helping us yet again.  Above all, huge and heartfelt thanks to my husband Christian Dunham for listening to my umpteen demos, and engineering, mixing and producing ‘A Light To Follow’.  I couldn’t do it without you.

CDs will be dispatched from the UK and Australia.  If you don’t have a CD player you can still support my music by ordering the digital album from Bandcamp.  The album will be available on all streaming sites including Spotify.

If you would like to know more about the story of the album, we’ve published a book with behind the scenes photographs, lyrics, works in progress and my own personal notes on the inspiration behind each song.  This book comes with an album download card.

Both the CD and book are available in my website shop.  You can listen to clips from the album here.

Thanks so much for your support.
