The set features lead single ‘Open Road’ which received extensive airplay across the UK on multiple country & Americana radio shows and stations, and new single ‘Giving In’ which is available to fans who pre-order.
Faye is due to mark the release with a special EP launch show at London’s The Bedford venue on 1st May, followed by an exclusive acoustic set on 4th May at Covent Garden Library Members Bar, before heading out for further tour and festival dates throughout the summer. In her own words: ‘So excited to finally be releasing the EP I recorded last year in Nashville – I can’t wait to share a little bit more of me, and I just really hope people will like it. It was an absolutely amazing experience recording in Nashville with such talented people bringing my songs to life’.

ABOUT EMILY FAYE:
Emily Faye’s journey into music and storytelling began in a back corner bedroom in a remote village deep in the English countryside. Her earliest musical influences came from the songs played on a mixtape made by her father, with the distinct voices of Stevie Nicks and Paula Cole paving the way for the captivating sound Emily creates and performs today. Having taken the time to study songwriting at London’s British And Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM), her abilities as both an artist and a songwriter seemingly have no limits, something which is showcased in the balance between songs which manage to be both catchy and deep in her early material. During the four years she attended the renowned college, she co-wrote and collaborated with like-minded musicians to begin gigging around the capital.
With the help of her bandmates and the relentless support of her family, Emily has successfully begun to make her mark within the ever-changing industry and is now in demand as one of the UK’s most exciting new country artists. Having travelled to the home of country music – Nashville, Tennessee – last year to record her debut EP set for release in April 2018, and named as one of Rolling Stone Country’s ‘Top Ten Artists You Need To Know’ at the end of the year, Emily Faye is certainly a name to look out for.
Emily’s new EP ‘Here I Am’ is out on Friday 27th April 2018, available to pre-order now.
