I was born and raised in a small town, Skørping in Norhern Jytland, Denmark. As long as I can remember, I have always been singing and loving music. When I was 10, I learned to play the guitar, and had the first gigs on the road with my band when I was 12. Through the years I have been playing and singing in different bands, doing several recordings, backing vocals and so forth for other artists as well. All this time, my love for country music grew. As a result of that, I was part of starting up one of Denmarks first country band, and we toured amongst others in Norway and Ireland and saw every corner of Denmark.
3 years ago I pulled the plug to “Emilie Band”, had a break and time to connect with my hopes and dreams for my future. Through all these years as a singer, my desire had always been, to make an album to call my own, with new songs, that I can relate to and share from my heart. So how did this amazing project come about?
I met Vic Holdroyd and picked some of his songs. Later on Lonnie Ratliff from Nashville offered me some songs as well, and last but not least the Irish songwriter Kevin Flemming entered the picture. DJ Bjarne C Hesselbjerggaard suggested the “Worm” studio in Hjørring, and the recordings took place in a tranquil green scenario, with cornfields ad horses. I am incredibly thankful for the wonderful journey we had together, and the professionalism and great spirit has earned my deepest appreciation and respect! Thanks for your patience!
Making this cd has brought me through an emotional rolercoaster looking back at my life with joys and sorrows, and every song is very dear to my heart and though I might not be the writer of the words, I feel like they were all made just for me. An example of this could be “Dear Brother” written by Kevin Flemming. This song is a tribute to my 2 brothers who died of cancer at the age of 35 and 42. “Two dimes” written by Vic Holdroyd states how money might be necessary to survive, but of no great importance when compared to things that really matters in life such as love.
I hope you will enjoy taking this journey with me – this is my dream come true.
