MUSIC: Folk Friday {Emmy the Great}

Here's another English folky for everyone to enjoy - I swear I listen to other music!

Emily was born in Hong Kong {she is half Chinese} in 1984 {26 years old} & moved to London when she was 12. Her first full length album, First Love, was released in 2009. She has been compared to a modern/anti-folk version of Nick Drake {the glorious} & Joni Mitchell {my soul}.

I dig it, it's good coffee-shop folk music, but more upbeat. I particularly enjoy the video/song below since I am all about correspondence {J'adore pen pals & postcards}.
