Producer Notes
“Emma was sent to me by my two good friends Billy and Shaka, so I knew the music could only be great. What I never expected was that in no time I was recording songs that somehow I had always dreamed would be written. In her mind, everything was already formed. She’s as good a songwriter as a performer and an arranger. Listening to the songs, if I hadn't been present, I would never have believed how fast she recorded all the vocals and instruments. I just hope the recording lets all her qualities come through untouched into the lucky listener’s ears. My friends described Emma as the most free personality in the world. I can only agree."
Lisbon, May 2017

Emma Jay Ashton has spent years travelling and recording her experiences through the music she writes. She values collaboration, absorbing influence and idea from countries as diverse as Portugal, Panama and now East Timor. A classically trained musician, she is heavily influenced by flamenco, West African Griot traditions and the great Joni Mitchell. Her music tells stories whose meanings are not immediately apparent, some of which seem to have filtered down through the centuries.
