Emma Gale wraps the complexities of our time into something simple, plaintive and poignant. In a world of noise and falsehood, here's a few moments of gorgeous, truthful clarity." Davey Ray Moor, Cousteaux.
Emma Gale cut her teeth as a cover’s singer based in Cambridgeshire and moved to Dorset in the early 2000s. Influenced by songwriters like Suzanne Vega, Sheryl Crow, Leonard Cohen and Gilbert O’Sullivan, she decided to move away from singing cover songs and learn how to write songs.

Music News & Reviews
Weymouth based Emma Gale has put her time in lockdown to great use. Although she has been a regular on the live circuit in her home town, this catchy but poignant ditty marks her debut single.

Beyond the 45
I doubt many debut singles were written, composed, recorded and produced in just one week, let alone from a lockdown situation. Emma Gale did just that for Let's See What The Earth Has To Say, which is inspired by the current Covid 19 situation that has swept across the world this year. Covering the fragility of human existence, this is a song about surrendering control and realising maybe we don't really need what we thought we did. As debuts go this is impressive, and bodes well for her first album coming later in the year.
