“I hope it gives you comfort in your goodbyes and also gets stuck in your head!”
Emily Faye takes the hearts of country-pop connoisseurs and novices by storm. The UK-based songsmith succeeds at creating pop infused sunny yet sweetly fierce songs that rightfully earned her acclaim from Rolling Stones magazine: labelled as 'a new country artist you need to know’. Emily is bridging the gap between country and pop with a firm storytelling vision in both her musical beginnings and forthcoming releases. Faye's dauntless reimagined take on her 2020 single 'Fearless' effortlessly shows her versatility in contrast to her latest single ‘Summer Feeling’ BBC Introducing track of the week.
‘When It Comes To Leaving’ was written with Jess Thristan via Zoom, in lockdown, during COVID-19. It stems from that feeling when you have to leave the ones you love, and how when it gets to the point of saying goodbye all you want to do is stay.
“This song has given me great comfort in the times I’ve had to say goodbye to my loved ones, which is rather often due to my fiance living in Jersey Channel Islands, and my family living in England.”
This song has been an ear worm and a comfort for Emily, so it really felt like the right song to be released.
“Working with Tim Prottey-Jones on this track was great fun, we wanted it to have a little hint of ‘Stevie Nicks’, as she is a huge inspiration to me. I hope it gives you comfort in your goodbyes and also gets stuck in your head!“
