Sydney folk-synth songwriter Emma Davis celebrates the release of her sophomore record 'Demons'

After several years of struggling to write, Davis built her own studio in a furniture joinery and started to forage sounds and piece together arrangements over the gentle hum of a drop saw. As she worked, Emma sent her ideas to one of her favourite producers, Greg J Walker (Paul Kelly, Tiny Ruins, Jen Cloher, Machine Translations), and the two teamed up to shape the record over two weeks in his beautiful Gippsland studio.

The outcome is a delicately crafted, warm and textured record. An observation of an anxious mind, a coming to terms with ageing and a celebration of the unknown. 

The first two singles from the album were released last year and were received with glowing reviews. “Danger In Me” resonated with many and was featured on several of Spotify and Apple Music’s best of 2017 Playlists. The third single, “Best Of Times” was added to rotation on FBi and Double J, and was also added to Apple Music’s Best Of The Week playlist.

"She's hands down one of Sydney's best kept secrets"  - Triple J

“Davis’ voice is delicate, never overbearing. Think Sally Seltmann/New Buffalo and Holly Throsby and you get an idea of Davis’ sound.” Double J
