Review – Emma Citrine

Album: Sad Surprise
Release Date: February 10, 2017
Genre: Folk Rock

Vancouver based artist, Emma Citrine has release her debut album, Sad Surprise. Known for working under the name, Emma Daly in the duo Leave, she has played in some of Vancouver’s top venues.

Sad Surprise is a strong six track release. The first single, “A Screaming (Comes Across The Sky) is a bittersweet tune with hypnotic music. The tracks “Poor Boy, Blind Man” and “Make War” are full out rock tunes, while “The Fall” is a dark brooding song. “Ledges” is more along the lines of folk roots. Having been influenced by The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Jack White, the songs on this album are as diverse as her influences.

All of the songs on Sad Surprise are well written and played with immense feeling, regardless of the different styles that this album are made up of.

Connect with Emma Citrine:

I fell in love with live shows when I saw my first concert at 8 years old
and it is love affair that has been going on 42 years.

I started writing for two Canadian music magazines in order to write and photograph the great live music scene that was going on around me. I enjoy Blues, indie- rock, motown and old fashioned rock and roll from the 50s to 70s. I will go to intimate house concerts, local clubs and the way to big arenas to see good live music. When not at a show, I will be at home in my garden listening to my latest acquired album.
