「若沒有事,我便不見人,外面世事,我全不過問」 王菲於 «一人分飾兩角» 唱道。生於香港的英國民謠女歌手Emmy The Great,曾經在香港表演時翻唱這首由本地著名獨立樂隊AMK作曲的經典廣東歌,引起眾多樂迷關注。在她第二張專輯«Virtue»更特別收錄一首增添了幾分電子色澤的英文版 «一人分飾兩角» 。今年,Emmy The Great再次帶著全新的出色作品回港,香港樂迷有福了!

A bonus track included in her second album《Virtue》,《One person Playing Two Roles》, was composed by AMK and originally sung by Faye Wong from Hong Kong. The established connections of Emmy the Great with Hong Kong are heart-warming to local music lovers. After all, she has a rare idiosyncratic charm that strikes a chord. As Emmy The Great returns to Hong Kong with new great songs, luck is with us this summer!

Emmy The Great原名Emma-Lee Moss,父親是英國人,母親是香港人。她就讀非國際本地小學,十二歲時移民英國就一直在倫敦生活。自少熱愛音樂的她,為了購買鐘愛的樂隊唱片,經常坐火車到遠處的唱片店流連。對她有莫大影響之樂隊包括Weezer、The Smashing Pumpkins 和 The Lemonheads 等等英美良音。 Emmy The Great在一次日本富士山音樂節與音樂人 Joe Strummer相遇,頃刻被啓發創作民謠音樂。於2006年發表第一首單曲《Secret Circus》後,Emmy The Great分別於2009年及2011年推出專輯《First Love》和《Virtue》。她發行的兩張專輯均得到Sunday Times Culture ﹑The Manchester Evening News和Uncut 等刊物的高分評價。《First Love》更被 New York Times 選為年度專輯。 音樂以民謠為本自成一派,編曲簡單大方,清揚的吉他和弦配上連串的琴音,頓時讓你豁然開朗。Moss清純的聲音悠揚婉轉,顯得格外甜美,令人眼前一亮。作品詞句多以Emma內心的愁善感與生活點滴為題,富有少女詩意。Emmy The Great早被鐵定實力非凡。

Emma-Lee Moss, known by her stage name Emmy the Great, is a London-based singer-songwriter born in Hong Kong. Born to an English father and a Chinese mother, gifted Emmy The Great grew up in Hong Kong and studied in a local primary school. She speaks fluent Cantonese. Relocating to UK when she was twelve, she settled down in London. Moss has genuine passion for music since she was young. To buy CDs of her favourite bands, she often took the train and travelled a long way to CD stores. The bands that have profound influence on Moss are great sounds including Weezer, The Smashing Pumpkins and The Lemonheads. Emmy The Great once came across musician Joe Strummer at Fuji Rock Festival, and was deeply enlightened to make folk music. After releasing her first single 《Secret Circus》in 2006, Emmy The Great launched two albums 《First Love》and《Virtue》in 2009 and 2011 respectively. Debut album《First Love》was selected as album of the week in the Sunday Times Culture and ranked as one of the New York Times’ Albums of the Year for 2009. 《Virtue》was also highly recommended by The Manchester Evening News and Uncut. Her music that grows on the soil of folk is a school unto herself; simple and generous composition aside, clear guitar chords and strings of keys complement each other perfectly. As her exquisite singing fits into the harmony, Emmy The Great naturally puts a smile on your face. Her poetic lyrics are mostly related to her feelings and her own daily life. Emmy The Great has been recognized for her outstanding talents long ago.

才女離家遊走世界各地,寫下了3 年後全新角度的多首作品。鹽湖城﹑東京﹑香港﹑洛杉磯,紐約和倫敦,各地發人心省的生活面貌令Emmy The Great靈如泉湧。Emmy The Great首兩張專輯唱說內心世界的感性浪漫; 而在EP《S》內,她為自己的作品加上了對花花世界獨到觀察的深度。 質素之高既取得不少好評,電台播放率更是不俗。 Emmy The Great曾與著名獨立民謠樂隊Lightspeed Champion及Noah and the Whale合作。她的新主打《Swimming Pool》則與英國新一代樂團 Wild Beasts 主將 Tom Flemming 合作, 以懷舊迷離的引子帶入一段甜美的低吟淺唱。《Social Halo》﹑《Solar Panels》和《Somerset(I Can’t Get Over)》,Emma加上了點亮心房的電音及暖意滿載的和聲,而她的唱腔添上了比往日更為濃厚的成熟感。除了《Swimming Pool》,Emma其他的新作品皆讓樂迷歡愉雀躍,更得到一眾樂評的極力推薦。

Three years later, a journey to Salt Lake City, Tokyo, Hong Kong, LA, New York and London has inspired the witty lyricist to make a breakthrough. Emmy The Great created her 2015 pieces in whole new perspectives. While she sang her internal world with introspection and romance in the previous two albums, she added depth to her enthralling new pieces as she observed the philosophy of the outside world. Her quality music has received positive comments, in addition to frequent radio broadcasting. Emmy The Great has performed with indie folk groups Lightspeed Champion and Noah and the Whale. For her EP 《S》, Wild Beasts’ Tom Fleming joins Emmy The Great for lead single ‘Swimming Pool’— a nostalgic and mesmerizing introduction bringing in sweet low murmuring, rippling keys and dream laden bass. In《Social Halo》﹑《Solar Panels》and《Somerset(I Can’t Get Over)》,Emma has embellished the melodies with delightful electronic notes and warm backing vocals. Note that her singing has a pleasing mature quality. Besides 《Swimming Pool》, Emma’s other works have also thrilled her fans , and have been highly recommended by music reviews.
