Emily Frith


‘Music for me began when I was about 4 years old. My teacher at school used to play us her guitar and I used to come back home and beg my Mum and Dad for a guitar so that I could play too. Turns out my fingers were too small and chubby to actually play any instruments, and the guitar I managed to persuade my parents to get me, ended up living in the corner of my bedroom until I was 11 years old. When I was 11, I fell in love with country music. I think it began with Taylor Swift, after putting the ‘You Belong With Me’ music video on repeat on YouTube and dancing around to it in my room for hours. This then lead to me buying album after album of various country artists’ music. After listening to countless records, I discovered that in country music, almost every single song tells its own story. I was so inspired by this, that I reached for my guitar and began writing – I haven’t stopped since. I’m now 19 years old, and I have written songs all about the emotional ups and downs of life, love and growing up that I have experienced. Writing for me has been a way of letting go of bad things, expressing what I want to say and helping other people who are going through similar things to me.’
