She sings about growing up, her own mistakes and the pitfalls of love. Delicate ballads like “Tug o’ War” and “All You Want” show her as a seeker who has to make mistakes to find the place in life. So personal the lyrics, so bewitching sounds her soft voice, expressing at the same time joy and sorrow, which perfectly mimics a trumpet.”
“Guitarist and songwriter Emma Langford could be described as a gentle warrior. The texts: socially critical. The voice: angelic.”
“The singer from Limerick… published her first album a month ago and is well on the way to making a career. Her songs are not cheerful, a ballad self-ironically heralds as a “dance song”, but they have depth, and their interpreter voice and charisma.”
