Jill Barber has released her new single “Girl’s Gotta Do” from the new album Metaphora, which is set for release on June 22, 2018. With her distinctive voice, Jill captures the vulnerabilities of depression, love, and sexual contexts of politics. Not only does she soulfully scape the submissive, she tells the stories of the empowerment behind it all as well. With musical roots found in Folk, Pop, and Jazz, Jill’s old world Hollywood, encased in a pop contemporary world of musical talent.
In the inspiration stages of Metaphora, Jill sought the creative help from friend Ryan Guldemond, Lead singer of the band Mother Mother, including the new and catchy single “Girl’s Gotta Do”. Ryan is co-writer, as well on four of the nine Metephora songs. Jill recalls the writing presses with Guldemond as a part of a therapy for breaking down and exceeding your boundaries, in all its raw forms.
Jill hopes that her music, and the messages, inspires us to take a stand in our lives and not relinquish our power against bullying, misuses of power, and all forms of manipulation.
Wandering EMm Photography origins came from a wanderer who saw the world in vibrant colour, unique compositions, and an understanding of the dance between light and dark. With her ’Beastie’ as she affectionately calls her camera, EMm can be found at most events, festival, and of course, is a regular at a concert. EMm has a strong passion for music. Using her camera, EMm can capture that moment in time where melody meets lyric, and exists as memory. Musicians have a tiny window to imprint you with their gift of song, given as thoughts, emotions, and experiences. EMm would like to seize that opportunity, and photograph that moment when it all connects. ‘How far will you wander… creatively?’
