On Wednesday, May 18 at 7:00pm, we welcome Emmy The Great for the latest installment "Next Up at Samsung 837," a series of music performances focusing on the best emerging talent.
The Hong Kong-born, UK-raised singer has released two solo albums, a soundtrack for the film Austenland, and does original music for the Mystery Show podcast. This past March, she released her third album, Second Love, where she delves into the chambers of a human heart ever-connected to the glare of a nearby screen. This is an album imbued with modern sounds, a nod to new eras, while maintaining the human warmth always associated with an ETG album. The songs are full of emotion and questioning, with the chatter of friends and collaborators "coded" into the sonic landscape.
Be sure to RSVP here. Seating is limited and not guaranteed with an RSVP at the Main Stage, so be sure to arrive early. Main Stage opens at 6pm and performance starts promptly at 7pm.
