From EMR to Dreamer

A new name 05.09.2022

Growing and evolving is an essential element of what it is to be human. And just how Dreamer's tracks are never quite of the same genre and nature, the formerly known EMR has seen it fit to evolve too. Introducing Dreamer.

Vienna

11.03.21

EMR’s first release since moving to Canada came rather unpredictably and in the form of the much loved song “Vienna” by Billy Joel. “Moving to Canada was overwhelming at times, especially since all of my plans unravelled fairly quickly thanks to a sprained knee and an incredibly slow postal service. One morning was particularly overwhelming, and I listened and cried to Vienna by Billy Joel on repeat as if he were speaking to me. And that’s the power of music. It’s a great message and one that I think a lot of people can connect to, especially these days. So I wanted to pass the message on in a version that I could make my own. While figuring out how I was going to play it, I paused to say “Vienna waits for…. *find the note… you” and then it clicked that I could make the word “you” a key feature in the song, so this relaxed, minimal, experimental kind of thing came about. I managed to do it in a couple of days on a 2013 laptop and that feat alone I believe deserves some recognition, haha!” EMR re-imagines Vienna in a minimal chill-esque vibe, putting her own spin on the classic.

EMR Covers Stuck on the Puzzle by Alex Turner

EMR releases a charming video to accompany her stunning stripped back cover of Stuck on the Puzzle by one of her greatest influences Alex Turner. 

FANCY PANTS

23.04.2021

EMR opens up about about how difficult it is to exist during the pandemic. Online shopping and dissssssss  so cation seem to be common crutches for EMR and her friends getting though this period in time. Her lyricism in Fancy Pants is at times satire to suit this joke of a year. Nodding to her influences in the Australian Indie Folk scene, the production of the guitars and keyboard is dissonant and quirky. Backing vocals with the performance and character of a main vocal line make another appearance here, perhaps becoming a bit of a signature of EMR.

Sun Arise

Spring Equinox

EMR celebrates the spring Equinox with the release of her stunning track Sun Arise. The result of the Arts Council Ireland Covid-19 Crisis Response, Sun Arise is an uplifting anthem of hope. EMR has once again pushed the boundaries of her musical production skills with her marriage of ballad rock and strings. The track has earned its place as a finalist in The Great American Song Contest.
