Upcoming popstar and country music artist Emily Coupe recently came out with her single, ‘I See Only You’. The song is about the emotional and hormonal gurgle and giggles within us when we fall in love for the first time. Through her lyrical and melodic composition, she takes the audience on a heartfelt, thematic journey of relatable elements.
Q. Which name would you like to promote your work in?
A. Emily Coupe
Q. Describe the thematic and musical linearity of your soundscape.
A. It’s very soft, gentle and romantic. It has a very intimate sound, hence the minimal instruments, and captures the essence of two people falling in love.
Q. What are your new releases?
A. ‘Quarantine Christmas’ in 2020, and ‘Nursery Rhyme (Lullaby Version)’ in early 2021. I also released my first album ‘Revolution’ in 2019. You can check out all of these songs on Spotify.
Q. Where do you hail from?
A. I was born in Australia, and now currently live in L.A.
Q. Are you associated with any record label or production house?
A. Sparam Entertainment
Q. How important are live gigs in the career of an artist?
A. Live gigs are super important, because it really allows the audience to connect with the artist in person, rather than just over the internet or through social media. Music is all about connection, and there is something that we can capture or share through a live gig, rather than just listening to a song/record.
Q. What is the responsibility of the audience in the expansion of music and artists around the world?
A. I think that it’s important for all music listeners to continue to expand their reach, and to try out and experiment with new genres, artists and countries. I know with myself I am always sticking to my fave artists, so try to brand out as much as possible. That’s why the playlist ‘discover weekly’ is so great!
Q. Which old-school and new-school musicians inspire your work the most?
A. Some old school musicians which I love are; Jewel, The Eagles, The Beetles, Fleetwood mac, Sheryl Crowe and Alanis Morisette. Some newer artists are Taylor Swift, Maren Morris, Colbie Caillat, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez etc.
Q. Do you think the music industry will change its course post-2020?
A. I think it will. As we went from the extreme of lots of gigs, to none, and then artists finding more ways to monetize and connect online, I believe that we will bounce back and find a happy medium. It will be a balance of connecting virtually, finding new ways to promote and market music, and also continue to gig too.
Q. What are your upcoming plans?
A. I am planning on releasing a few more singles, and then drop my second album later this year. I am also finishing up shooting multiple acting projects this year, so looking forward to these films being released too. As well as enjoying being outside, adventures, and spending more ‘in person’ time with family, friends and of course live gigs.
