Emily Barker - Photos, Fires, Fables (2007)

Emily Barker - Photos, Fires, Fables (2007)

Emily Barker has released her first solo album Photos Fires Fables to tremendous acclaim, both from her fast-growing fanbase and from the media. Somehow Emily Barker has managed to cross over the borders of Folk and Americana in the way few artists outside of America have been able to do. Rising stars such as Antje Duvekot in the USA have taken the Celtic and English Folk origins and forged them with traditional singer-songwriting, but on Photos Fires Fables Emily Barker stamps out her own personality with her soaring and magical vocals and imaginative and plaintive songwriting. Hailing from Blackwood Valley in Western Australia, Emily Barker struck a chord with the revered late BBC broadcaster John Peel who supported her playing tracks on his show. Emily's band The Red Clay Halo, provide sympathetic acoustic support without ever threatening to overwhelm her warm and sensitive voice. Dividing her time promoting Photos Fires Fables in both the UK and her native Australia, Emily Barker's impact has been sudden but not unexpected by those who saw her opening set at the 2006 Cambridge Folk Festival, performing material from Photos Fires Fables accompanied by the strings and accordion of The Red Clay Halo.

I work with Emily. We paid for the recording of this album out of our own pockets. The only income she has right now is from the occasional gig and the sale of CDs at those gigs and hopefully soon, after many months of work, via retailers. Every time you download her album for free, you help make it more difficult for her to survive as an artist. Do the right thing - go and pay £10 for an album that someone has dedicated their life to making. If you don't, you are a thief. I am reporting your blog to the IFPI.
