Emily is back and with a superb repertoire of new songs produced by Jørg from Germany. Emily’s new album, ‘Finding Irene’ releasing on 23 December, firmly stamps her personality into the music, and even includes a great Christmas release called, ‘Merry Christmas, a happy one too’. ‘Finding Irene’ is Emily’s first solo album, and contains 12 songs including an extended album version of “Spotlight”. All songs are based on the acoustic guitar and are produced in different instrumentations. Elements are Rock Guitar, Hammond Organ, Brass sections as well as String ensembles, mostly performed with Drums and Bass. It’s got a very unique sound in a style between Alternative Rock, Modern Country Rock and Singer-/Songwriter stuff. ‘Finding Irene’ provides the unmistakeable voice of Emily – she is soothing and sings with absolute authority. Her voice is rock powerful, yet conveys emotion and meaning.
Emily, from Houston, Texas can be seen across the Twitter music community as she performs her weekly gigs and provides her Sunday Funday videos. Emily Glazener is a widowed mother of three boys and has been singing and playing music live since she was a teen. Throughout the years she played in cover bands and performed solo acoustic shows, as well as being the lead singer of Red Iris, an original rock band out of Houston, TX. Her goal is to reach out, uplift, encourage, and inspire people around the world with her music. Her philosophy is “ … I believe if you share a smile most people will smile back …”.
We feature ‘Finding Irene’ below, and will be playing her music on the station. Please do support her new solo work if you can.
