Encounter serious romance and heartache
Emilia Tarrant is a 19-year-old singer songwriter from Winchester, who started playing the piano at the age of 12 and has been writing songs ever since. She says: “songwriting is like writing a diary for me; each song comes from the heart and is a way for me to escape the daily stresses of life.”
There’s this well-known phrase “mature beyond their years” and it’s one that could easily be applied to singer-songwriter Emilia Tarrant who possesses a certain old soul quality. Yet, you could also argue that her music is a reflection of the turbulence, uncertainty and excitement of being 19-years-old.
For many, this time in their lives is when they’ll first encounter serious romance and heartache, something that the Wincester-based artist explored in her last single ‘Honeymoon Phase’, which was credited by the likes of Wonderland, Mahogany, CLOUT, POPMUZIK, The Music Enthusiast, Up Next Sessions and more. This new release ‘Here You Are, Again’ however, is an even more personal and vulnerable offering from Tarrant, which was written during the second UK lockdown. We know that it threw up all manner of mental, emotional and physical challenges for everyone, including teenagers and young adults.
Her early influences were formed from listening to her parent’s music collection around the house, playlists including Coldplay, Doves, Kings of Leon, Foals, Moby & Jack Johnson. Emilia says, “It was Moby who inspired me to pursue music production while in education.” Having recently completed her music and media courses, Emilia is now focusing on her music career and has recently been co-writing with other artists & songwriters, including James Walsh from Starsailor, Joshua “Joe” Keogh from Amber Run and Jonathan Quarmby (Tom Walker, Lewis Capaldi).
Emilia was booked for cancelled Glastonbury 2020, Jade Bird support for International Women’s Day 2020 Soho House event, played at The Houses Of Parliament for UK Music (the only performer invited) CIC Industry awards, The Ned, Groucho, White City House and will be playing a London showcase as soon as allowed.
Her single ‘If You Want Love’ (produced by Coldplay-credited Danton Supple ), which climbed to Shazam UK’s chart position 16 and was featured as an end-of-episode dync on Love Island.
