Emma Langford’s debut album, ‘Quiet Giant’ , is out now!

Following the success of her self-titled EP in 2016 praised by Hotpress Magazine as “almost angelic”, Emma Langford returns with her debut album, ‘Quiet Giant’. The album showcases ten tracks, set against a stunning backdrop of strings, percussion and piano. The songs dance lightly between genres, weaving a coming-of-age narrative that explores love, heartbreak, and wrestling with self-doubt. 

‘Quiet Giant’ was recorded amidst the rolling pastures of Portlaoise at Golden Egg Studios, with Grammy nominated producers Graham Murphy & Chris O’Brien of the Production Suite. The album lands as Langford embarks on a tour of Germany and Switzerland in October and November with the Irish Folk Festival. Irish and UK tour dates to follow. 

Alongside the album pre-order, you also have the opportunity to grab a range of exclusive merchandise and tickets for the album launch at Dolans Warehouse in Limerick in December. 

Since entering the live music scene in 2013 Emma has been gigging throughout Ireland both solo and with a host of musicians. Emma has made appearances in some of the country’s foremost venues such as Limerick’s Dolans, Dublin’s Whelan’s, St James’ Church in Dingle; and at festivals such as Electric Picnic and the Doolin Folk Festival and is now branching out through her current tour to Germany and Switzerland.

Emma released her EP in June of last year and has since gone on to play sold-out shows throughout Limerick with her debut release receiving widespread acclaim.

Emma Langford’s band consists of Tadhg Murphy on violin, Hannah Nic Gearailt on keys and vocals, Peter Hanagan on double bass, Ray Yrure on percussion and Alec Brown on cello and vocals.

Emma Langford launches Crowd-Funding Campaign

Young Limerick singer-songwriter Emma Langford has just launched a public funding campaign to help fund her upcoming project: a six-track EP set to be released this summer.

Emma, who launched the campaign earlier this week, aims to raise €3,000, which will go towards production, artwork, promotion and a music video. As of Wednesday, March 23, Emma had raised €861.

“I have managed to save a little money myself to put toward the EP but it just isn’t enough, and I really want to put my best foot forward. Unfortunately in the world of music as in any other you get what you pay for, so producing a quality record costs money,” Emma told.

The tracks are set to be “diverse in theme and in style” according to Emma.

“The six tracks will feature a range of instruments, including violin, viola, piano, bodhrán, flute, bass and guitar. The whole EP has come to have a very Irish vibe to it across the board, just in terms of some of the rhythms we’ve decided to play around with, and the instruments we’ve chosen to work with, but we’ll be very much staying true to my own sounds of folk and blues,” revealed Emma Langford. She complimented the collective of artists she worked alongside, saying they were a “fantastic” group of people.

Emma hopes that her forthcoming EP will be “a good indication of who I am as an artist”. She hopes her upcoming track will open up festival and concert gig opportunities
