The Haslemere Fringe team are delighted to announce that Emma Stevens will perform her distinctively catchy pop melodies, fused with folk instrumentation and a touch of country, at the festival on Lion Green on Sunday 3rd July.
Originally from Guildford, Emma’s music and incredible voice captures a sound that is unique and totally uplifting. Weaving together guitar, banjo, mandolin, piano, cello and ukulele, and playing the majority of instruments herself, The Telegraph described her as “A very talented multi-instrumentalist”.
From the thought-provoking ballad “Sunflower” (a song written about the loss of her mum to cancer) to the barn-storming “Riptide”, Emma describes her songs as, “all written from my heart and soul to convey beautiful messages based on feelings of loss, happiness, nature, my love for the ocean and my love for people”.
After three million Spotify plays, over a million video views on the back of seven EPs, three album releases and four consecutive singles playlisted by BBC Radio2, Emma’s profile exploded in China after her track “A Place Called You” was featured on a prime-time TV show watched by over 75 million viewers, it has since amassed over 500 million streams.
