Bafta and Ivor Novello award winning singer-songwriter Emily Barker and her band The Red Clay Halo are touring their much-anticipated fourth album, Dear River, at the Glee Club Birmingham, Tuesday 19th November.
Hailing from Western Australia, Emily Barker is a compelling singer-songwriter, who blends classical, rock, country and folk influences to stunning effect. Having released three acclaimed albums, played sold-out UK dates, performed with Frank Turner at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony and written the award winning themes to hit BBC dramas Wallander and The Shadow Line, the ‘Dear River’ album is a major musical landmark.
Dear River was produced by Calum Malcolm (Blue Nile) and marks a significant sonic move, highlighting Barker’s agile vocal blend of strength and fragility, while lyrically exploring the meaning of Home. Blending her own story into the wider joys and sorrows of others’ experiences of travel and emigration, Emily has emerged with a compelling song cycle that makes her Dear River album an unmistakable watershed.
