We don’t often listen to country in the NMW offices but when we do, we go all in, and this week we’ve gone all in for Emily Scott Robinson’s American Siren.
Then there’s the mix of lyrical themes. In Hometown Hero, for example, we find ourselves with what feels like a country staple, the song about an American soldier coming home to America.
And throughout, Emily raises what could have been trite or cliched songwriting far above the average with her incisive and intelligent poetic lyrics, in an age where songwriters don’t get much attention – Emily deserves yours.
Whether you’re looking for pleasant ballads or a bit of full blast country, this album delivers and we can’t wait to listen to it again.
