Rowed found love in Los Angeles, and what followed was an extended period of planes, travel, and living without a fixed address. She documented the whole thing during a wildly prolific writing session with producer La+ch (Coleman Hell). “We stayed in his little writing room for thee weeks and made an album,” remembers Emily. “It wasn’t pre-written, it wasn’t planned, it wasn’t some idea that I had. It just came out.” They emerged with April — a 10-song LP that mashes up Emily’s raw, introspective folk songwriting with the producer’s crystalline noir-pop arrangements.
Dance superstar, Tiësto sampled her voice on his 2014 track “Say Something,” which paved the way for her to follow a more electronic sound. With April, she’s blended it all into one with a style that combines singer-songwriter intimacy with late-night electronic sparkle. “Recording with La+ch was like finding my dance partner. The music instantly clicked,” Emily reflects. “The album isn’t overthought, it’s not rewritten a hundred times. There’s a little bit of imperfection, and I’m down with that.”
