If you want to experience the raw depths of human feeling, listen to “Thief” by Emily Nicole Green.
This is the song for anyone who has experienced the sting of rejection, the difficulty of reconciling life’s contradictory realities, or the emptiness of longing for someone who is no longer in one’s life.
Emily, a bright light in the midst of New York City’s hustle and bustle, tells stories that not only reverberate down alleys but also touch us at our very core.
Her present? Capacity to expose the inner workings of her mind and heart through music, making an indelible impression on her audience.
Her exquisite vibrato makes her voice feel like a warm embrace. When combined with her emotionally stirring music, she creates an effect that rings true and true.
It’s understandable why Emily would feel this way; she’s had a rough go of it. She’s had anxiety issues since she was 17, and it took her two decades to find solace in music, turning her struggles into something beautiful.
By deftly blending genres, “Thief” displays her Americana origins. It’s a sample of the varied styles she can perform, and it bodes well for her upcoming first EP, “Outrunning the Animal.”
This collection, due out in October, will feature a wide range of musical styles, from jazz to indie-folk, pop to blues, and the soothing twang of country.
With the coming of fall and the release of Emily Nicole Green’s debut EP, we can be sure of one thing: it will be a journey of discovery, healing, and soulful music that weaves tales as old as time.
“Thief” is for anyone who has ever been abandoned. It’s about the experience of being betrayed or rejected by the person you love the most, but it’s also about the realization that two things can be true. I think this is realization many of us don’t come to until later in life. I hope that people who have experienced this type of pain feel acknowledged and seen by this song.
