Music has always been em’s first love ever since digging through her dad’s collection of 33’s and 45’s, mesmerized just by watching them spin; listening to every nuance, beat and word, and devouring the details in each liner note. Now em will play the beats she grew up on and the personal favourites she’s gathered throughout her music-loving life. Welcome to em’s house.
