Today we continue with our popular “Your Voice, Your Choice” feature on Belles and Gals, the 45th edition of the feature! We introduce one of our favourite songs from a country artist and then the artist tells us in turn about a song that has inspired them and has a special place in their heart. Today we feature UK country artist and Belles and Gals sponsored Emily Frith!
At the start of 2018, Belles and Gals began sponsoring artists. We looked at the UK country scene and considered artists who we think have a great future in the industry and approached them! We were delighted when Emily Frith accepted. Emily released her debut EP ‘One Day’ back in September of last year and on the EP is the fantastic single ‘You and I’ (above). This gentle and heartfelt song ends the EP perfectly. I ended the EP review with the following statement –
‘“One Day” is a fine debut for Emily Frith. The collection of five songs grabs you from the start, with Emily’s distinctive vocals and her song writing bringing it all together perfectly. Emily has a subtleness in her performance – it’s never too bold or brash and this gives the EP an endearing quality. It’s always fantastic to see new UK artists come on the scene and Emily Frith is a fine addition to that list. I look forward to hearing more!”
Emily has chosen ‘God Bless This Mess’ by Jillian Jacqueline
‘It’s actually so hard to put into words how a song like this makes me feel, but when I feel as though my life is getting a little ‘messy’, I turn this song on and all of my troubles just lift away and my life feels so much less complicated. The first verse of this song is my favourite, because it addresses the ‘imperfect’ people in life, and somehow we all fit into one of the categories she lists. That in itself speaks so loudly to me because it reminds me that nobody’s life is truly perfect. We’re all a little messy but we’re all trying our best and that’s all that matters in life, no matter who you are or what path you take. I absolutely love the meaning of this song, and how everybody can interpret that meaning and relate to it in some way. I hope that my music has the power to inspire people the way this song inspires me.’
