Watch List: Emma Parkes - Temperamental
Birmingham, U.K., based singer/songwriter Emma Parkes brings to the scene a strong, gospel infused voice and thoughtful, emotionally resonant lyrics. The beautiful tone and texture of her voice has been heard by audiences across the U.K., both in a solo capacity, and also when she provided backing vocals for Lisa McClendon's U.K. tour. While her Christianity in forms her song-writing, "...I like to mix and blend styles, the topics...so I like to kind of mix life and the 'truth', and present it in, a kind of, a way, that I think that people that don't know God can kind of digest and relate to...". We feel she is true to the words of encouragement that she has for other artists, to "never forget that some people are relying on you to stay original, fresh and free... be who you are and make music from the heart...". Here, courtesy of Soul Features, she sings 'Temperamental', and, below, courtesy of Reed Bass Presents and 33 TV, she sings 'Freefall'.
