It’s always a pleasure when we get to chat with you, Emma Madison! Congratulations on the wonderful year! As an artist, what kept you inspired throughout 2020?
Thank you so much for having me again! Honestly, 2020 was really tough. But, even though I often found myself struggling to find motivation, music really pushed me through. Whether I was writing my own songs or listening to my Spotify playlists, music is just so inspirational and beautiful. I can’t imagine where I would be without it.
Were there any learning curves that you had to face head-on and overcome this year?
One of the main things I had to push through this year was distance learning. Making the switch to online classes made retaining information difficult and often frustrating. I’ve had to utilize a ton of supplemental resources I found online, and come up with creative ways to stay motivated.
What themes and messages are you hoping to capture in, “It’s Christmas”? It definitely has us feeling festive!
I’m glad to hear that! I wasn’t going for anything super deep or complicated with this song, the writing process was mainly just me blurting out things I loved about Christmas when I was younger. My main goal was just to capture those feelings of excitement and anticipation kids feel around the holidays.
How is the creative process different when approaching a holiday song versus other releases?
I really enjoyed writing this song because often the most difficult part of songwriting for me is just coming up with ideas. With It’s Christmas, the main idea of the song was a given, which made getting started easy. There is also less pressure when writing holiday songs, I don’t find myself feeling pressured to write about something complex or groundbreaking, it’s just fun!
Besides singing and songwriting, you hold many musical talents! Could you please tell listeners what other talents you hold within?
I’ve never been the type of person to find only one thing I enjoy and stick with it forever, my philosophy more follows the idea that you will never know if you’re great at something until you try it, so why not try everything? While I focused on piano and guitar, since I got into music I have picked up the trumpet, ukulele, clarinet, harmonica, recorder, violin, and likely more than I am forgetting.
With a wide range of musical influences including, Rap, Pop, and Opera, how do you allow these genres to speak into the creations you place forth?
I think my influences are more subconscious than intentional. I never go into writing with the intention of emulating a certain genre or artist, but when I look back at my songs I can definitely see these influences pop out in places.
As one who is fortifying their foundation as you establish your name; how do you feel as an artist going into 2021?
I feel pretty good! I’ve been working on some fun stuff, and I have high hopes for 2021. It’ll be tough, but I have a feeling 2021 will be a year of recovery for everyone.
