The depth of Emma Hewitt’s artistry is on full display as she returns in the roles of singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and co-producer on her new album, ‘Ghost Of The Light’. Involved in every step of the creation from co-writing all songs and playing a multitude of instruments on the record, right through to taking the co-production reins and shooting her own music videos, Emma has been singularly focused with every aspect of bringing her creative vision to life.
Those seeking to experience all the album offers will want to dive deeper into her lyrics and private universe. The album’s title, ‘Ghost Of The Light’, is Emma’s meditation on memories and how they shape us: those instantly recalled, the dreams half-remembered and the fragmented reminiscences, just beyond our reach, but always with us somehow. She channelled all of this into a collection of introspective, intimate songs, and ones that may yet inform her future.
This being her first album since 2012’s ‘Burn The Sky Down’, it is an undertaking that her mind, voice and soul has to be utterly committed to. An attempt to draw a line between Emma-then and the Emma-now, its insights may resonate with fans of all ages.
