The stars were perfectly aligned for these Memphis ‘Sweet Kind of Blue’ sessions. Barker brought her songs, her guitar, that cathedral of a voice and her irrepressible freewheeling spirit.

An amazing angelic voice set to the acoustic chords of America’s country blue of melancholy and nostalgia, Emily Barker has struck an emotional chord and the essence of country parties with her new album Sweet Kind of Blue, to be released Friday 19th May. Then to be followed by her tour and signings between May and June over the UK and to Southsea as of May 31st.
Full of childhood memories; lost summer love, upbeat country dancing tunes and melancholy blues captured to Emily Barker’s sweet voice and rustic acoustic sounds, Sweet Kind of Blue is the amazing acoustic album to look out for.
