Music from the Heart

Emmo - Lemon Sun (single)

Upcoming Cork artist EMMO (pronounced 'M - O') is fresh off the stage at the marquee in Cork supporting The Coronas and from a series of sold out headline shows in Winthrop Avenue, Whelan’s and The Workman's Club and a German tour, EMMO and is at the cusp of an industry breakthrough. Having just released his debut single ‘Still’ in April 22’, Emmo is receiving huge support across national and regional Irish radio ( 96FM, 2FM, Red FM, BBC ULSTER, KCLR, KFM, OCEAN, NORTHERN SOUND and RTE recommends playlist) as well as across German, UK and Greek radio. Invited by Ovation Guitars to perform at The German Songwriter Awards in Berlin. His song "Little Bird" received critical acclaim from a panel of industry judges including Universal Music & Sony Music making it through to final stage.

A unique singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with comparisons from Nathanial Rateliff to Brian Deady to Ed Sheeran - EMMO’s single songster stage presence combined with his impressive vocal range and energy are leading him to create excitement across the music industry.

As EMMO goes from strength to strength the release of his second single ‘Lemon Sun’ really cements his position as one of Ireland's most exciting upcoming artists. An upbeat, contagiously optimistic track that ironically charts the end of a long-term relationship. Lyrically relatable and musically impressive ‘Lemon Sun’  has a similar energy to Paul Simon's Call me Al, with an infectiously modern pop rap hook. Speaking about the track Emmo said “ I coined the term ‘Lemon Sun’ as the period of time you go through after a breakup. It's basically the complete opposite of the Honeymoon Period. What’s the opposite of honey – the bitterness of a lemon and the opposite of moon is Sun. Hence Lemon Sun! We’ve all been through a ‘Lemon Sun phase’ and this track is my tribute to that.” ‘Lemon Sun’ has all the trademarks of a summer hit with the traditional breakup message. It’s about what you're missing most about that person, what you want more of, what you feel you cant live without but mostly the small tiny, parts of a relationship you miss the most."

"Been broken up about a month

Well it’s kinda two

Buts it’s nearly been a full month

Since I last kissed you"
