  1. I don't believe it. Sarah left a comment with me yesterday. I visited her. I listened to her amazing, beautiful voice and songs - man, she blew me away - I liked her on Facebook just in case she ever felt like performing somewhere near me and... here we are.

    Love your work, Em. x

  2. man, you're really gonna make me choose an all time favourite? You know that's impossible right?
    Hhhm, I think I'll have to give an honorable mention to The Beatles, for being the band that I have loved from a very very young age.

    Better count me in on this comp, love hearing new music!

  5. Just liked her fb page :) so many songs to name. Bernard Fanning- Wish you well, the last song at our wedding, Angus and Julia Stone- Mango Tree, lying in my back yard in the summer warmth. Bit like you we have something for everything. A song for our first camping trip together when my tiny little civic was packed to the brim and our tent nearly blew away. Painting our first home........ I love your blog. I hope that you are getting some great summer weather today just like we are.

  6. Once again Em, thanks for introducing me to a beautiful talent.
    From the very first notes I was transfixed and how about that gorgeous artwork on the album cover?

    I'm connected via FB and hope that Sarah visits the Sunny Coast soon.
    As for my alltime fave band - too tough, but I've had "Seeker, Lover, Keeper" on high rotation since Christmas when a sweetheart friend popped it in my CD player.

    Happy day Lovely!

  14. Ok, all time favourite song. "I hope you dance" Lee Ann Womack. I say this because this is the song that my mum always says she wishes my brother would understand. This is her song for him. So, when ever I am missing one of them, I play it and I always think of them.
