News - Emilie Lierre

There is a quote that "not all those who wander are lost" and Emilie Lierre has certainly found her path, with a new album, The Wanderer, being released by Lights & Lines on 14th October. Listen to the first single, Extraordinary...

Press Release

A broken down relationship and a yearning to wander the earth lead Emilie Lierre to Australia where she busked to make a living and explored the southern hemisphere for 2 years. Appearances on ABC and Triple R radio in Melbourne gave her the confidence to pursue her musical dream and record an 8 track album on her return.

A nomad by nature, Emilie was born in Manchester, brought up in Portsmouth, but comfortable anywhere. Lierre's debut album The Wanderer takes the listener on a journey of their own through her thoughts on life, love, and the world around us.

Until now these eight original songs have only ever been heard live or on the streets. And whilst a ‘full band’ album is in the works, our introduction to Emilie Lierre is a purely acoustic album featuring nothing but a lightly strummed Ukulele and Emilie’s trademark deep soulful singing voice. Each song is recorded in just one take, stripped back to the way it was originally intended.

An honest recording in every sense, the album portrays the message that Emilie’s music is made with purpose rather than frivolity or exuberance. And the results are beautiful!

The debut single, Extraordinary was released everywhere on 26th August and kicked off Part 2 of Lights & Lines' Summer Singles series, celebrating the 1st year anniversary of the label.

The closing line states “One day you’ll see it’s me that’s extraordinary” and perhaps that sums up how to feel about Emilie Lierre's music better than anything.
