Toronto based indie-folk artist, Emma Cook is preparing to release a new album, and she has just released her first single, “I Will Stay”. When asked about the single, Emma states,
“I Will Stay is one of the first songs I recorded for this album and it played a pivotal role in creating the record as a whole. I was coming from a very dark time in my life and struggling to find the strength to rise above my own pain and be there for my young and very fiery daughter. The song conjures up all of our fears of not being perfect, and how life can erode the image you had of yourself, but how we can remain strong despite it. Fun fact, it is also my daughter’s favourite song.”
Emma will be performing during Indie Week in Toronto on November 9 at Cameron House, in which she will share songs from her new album, set for release in 2018. Emma shares her thoughts on this,
“I am looking forward to being part of Indie Week again this year. It’s a great festival and I always love performing at the Cameron House in Toronto. This show will be the first one after the new single and the unveiling of my new live show which will be quite different from my previous releases.”
