So, if you have been with me for a while, you will know how much I love Emma Sharpe & the Features who hailed out of Brighton starting around 1979. And if you've seen me and you've seen her you probably get part of the attraction. Lol. I have actually been trying to track down Emma for several years now and thanks to some very adept sleuthing on the part of my friend Jerrold, I finally found her! This has lead me to revisit her catalog in preparation for an interview. So, for your listening pleasure, I have put a bunch more of my favorite tracks up on my YouTube. You can listen below, or just go to my channel and listen to them all together and I urge you to do so because the world is grey and cold and often horrible and this will, if only momentarily, occupy your brain and maybe convince you there can be some good in the world.
I was listening to this first track, Carry Me Through The Fire, while reading more tragic news the fire in Oakland. So much shit going on that's devastating, it's hard to stay positive and focused sometimes. I can't say anything that hasn't been said before but just a simple plea to stay safe, stay together and stay strong.
Love, as always,
