Listen to the New Emma Davis Live Video “Danger In Me”

Sydney singer-songwriter Emma Davis has just released an absolutely stunning new song “Danger In Me”. The heartfelt track was inspired by the current Marriage Equality “debate” and will be released on her upcoming album.

“I didn’t set out to write a song about love, or marriage,” Emma Davis explained. “I was thinking more about labels and the way we use them to try to understand our minds and behaviours a little better. I think I often use songwriting as a way of processing things and as I kept writing, the song morphed into something else. Something I didn’t even realise had been upsetting me so much.”

Take a listen to “Danger In Me” below:

And as an extra special treat Emma Davis released a live video of the track with her band Bonnie Stewart (drums, vocals) and Luke Wellington (keys, vocals) – check it out here:

Timber and Steel Premiere: “We’ll Meet Halfway” from The Acfields

Sibling folk duo The Acfields haven’t made life easy for themselves, given they’ve decided to live in different cities. With Hannah in Melbourne and Dan in Brisbane, The Acfields have to overcome the tyranny of distance to write, record and tour – but somehow they make it work.

The new single, “We’ll Meet Halfway”, is about just this situation and is the first taster off an album The Acfields are currently crowd funding.

“”We’ll Meet Halfway” is a song based on our experience living in different cities and being in a band together,” Hannah Acfield explained. “We wrote this song together while on tour, in a small empty football stadium in Newcastle. After I walked the Camino, a 700km walk across Spain, we spent three months in Brisbane with Dan writing twice the amount of songs required for the album. “We’ll Meet Halfway” is the first single from the upcoming album released in early 2018.”

Timber and Steel are proud to premiere the official video for “We’ll Meet Halfway” which was created by Hannah Acfield using stop motion photography – check out the beautiful clip here:

Despite living in different cities The Acfields made sure they recorded all of the songs for their upcoming album to ensure a sense of synchronicity. If you’re keen to support the release of the album head over to their Pozible page here.
