Singer-songwriter Terry “Two Ms” Emm is returning to music this month following a six year hiatus: his new EP ‘Ornate’ drops on Friday, and today he unveils the striking opening track ‘The Leaving’. Emm says “When I was around 12-15 years old I’d spend every night after school recording tracks on an 8-track in my bedroom. I started to revisit these sessions last year which was like re-connecting to a previous life and a certain freedom and purity. Some tracks were like old friends, some I’d completely forgotten about. I liked the young innocent feel of the tones and lyrics and picked out some previously overlooked elements of some of the tracks that I thought were particularly cool.” Terry’s most recent album ‘Starlight’ at times sounds like the Americana jams of Wilco yet also the string quartet infused ballads of Clifford T Ward. If you can imagine such a thing.
