Emma Charles - Comfort in the Chaos

This post was originally published in November 2018.

It’s the quick double punch of a sweet, conversational vocal tone, and the speedy progression from verse through to chorus, that creates immediate warmth, and a sense of direction. As we circle back and hear the same refrain, the lilt of a southern cadence creep in, and the energy level increases.

Taking a classic Americana instrumentation, infusing it with a creative arrangement, and some dark minor chords, Emma Charles gives us a personal resolution that is both brooding and beautiful. We are not in control; that’s just a fact. The next best thing is to be at peace with what is.

“I don’t own the wind
I don’t own the light
I don’t own the sky
from where it falls”— Emma Charles
