Her sound has since progressed into a blend of Jazz, Soul, and R&B elements with a contemporary dash of electronic pop. Her versatile voice can sing nearly anything be it a blues torch song or a pop banger.

When it comes to lyrics, she is prolific and doesn't shy away from the heavy stuff. As a background vocalist she has worked with Craig Waters and the Flood, American Idol Star Eddie Island on his upcoming album, as well as with The Superstones on their viral Tik Tok hit "I Found Myself".

Interview with Emma Morcroft

  1. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  2. A: Are there any songs you are wanting to emulate with the vocal arrangement or lyric? What is the main emotion you think of/want to evoke with this piece of music? How were you feeling when you wrote it?

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: I listen to the whole track and nail down sections, noting how the music makes me feel if the composer hasn't already come in with an idea. I'll take what the music compels me to feel and write that out. I throw a lot at the wall and see what sticks the best. I write the lyrics quickest, and the melody usually comes along with the cadence of the lyric.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I use a Scarlett Focusrite and an SM7 in Pro-Tools.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. A: I love the soul singers coming out of Britain right now, Mahalia, Cat Burns, and Kamal. I love King Henry's production work with Sasha Sloane as well as Chris Anderson and Mac Ayers.

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: I have most recently been writing top lines for producers in funk and EDM styles.
