Emma Miller releases a new EP, ‘Set Me Down’, via the House on the Rocks label.
Miller says of the EP: “Although the majority of the music was written and recorded in London, I wrote ‘Low Light’ at home in Scotland fairly recently, and it seemed to embody a lot of the theme of ‘Set Me Down’. It’s another song about letting go and returning to the small everydayness of life, and finding peace there.
Of the title track, she adds: “I wrote ‘Set Me Down’ nearly two years ago when I was feeling particularly overwhelmed by the music industry and all that that entails. It has quite a literal meaning really, I wanted to be wrapped up in cotton wool and gently set down, away from the hubbub and franticness of London.
“Funnily enough, a year later that’s just what happened. I left London, dropped the pretence of my music having to pay the bills and came back home to the north east of Scotland. Listening to the song now, it’s like hearing a small piece of my life being played out, things have come full circle in a way and I get a strong sense of peace from that.”
Having been releasing music since 2017, Miller says she has taken a noticeable step back over the past two years, having “let go of the idea that music had to pay the bills”. Instead, while watching and supporting her peers in their quest for success, she chose to focus on her songwriting and establish “a body of music she could be proud of.”
