“This is a dream of a record. A new Marling, then? No, Barker offers something else..."BBC Music editor’s choice (Feb 2011)
Hailing from Bridgetown, Western Australia, Emily Barker is a compelling songwriter with a gift for weaving melody and words. Her talent is perfectly complemented by the magnificent arrangements of her band The Red Clay Halo, whose rootsy ensemble playing underpins Barker’s agile vocal blend of strength and fragility
The achingly beautiful ‘Pause’ from the album is the theme tune to BBC 2’s gripping TV drama TheShadow Line starring Christopher Ecclestone. And ‘Nostalgia’, from Emily’s second album ‘Despite The Snow’, is the Bafta-winning theme tune to BBC1’s Wallander, starring Kenneth Branagh.
