EMERSON SNOWE That's Rock 'n' Roll EP Launch Tour
Liberation Records is today thrilled to reveal the video for Emerson Snowe’s new single ‘Human’ alongside details of his forthcoming debut EP That’s Rock ‘n’ Roll set for release on Friday 10 May.
Fresh from appearances at SxSW last month, Emerson will quickly return to the international stage, this time to perform showcases at Brighton’s The Great Escape as well as headline shows across the UK and Europe throughout May. To celebrate the release of That’s Rock ‘n’ Roll, Emerson has also announced a six-date headline tour along Australia’s east coast this July.
‘Human’ sees 24-year-old Emerson Snowe (real name Jarrod Mahon) deliver an uplifting and affirming anthem about overcoming life’s challenges as he grows to understand more about himself through his relationships with the people that surround him. It’s accompanying video, a quirky and at times laugh out loud visual, captures Jarrod’s many streams of conscience centered against evocative backdrops.
“A lot of my recent tracks were written with one person in mind - as if I'm talking to only one person specifically. Unlike my other songs this is me talking to more than one person, it's to my parents and trying to understand the relationship I have with them and how it co-aligns with who I am. I have always been quite aware of how I always self-sabotage myself, I feel it is coming back into my life more recently - but now that I have more of a goal I'm starting to see and feel beautiful things. I’m glad I'm here.” - Emerson Snowe
‘Human’ follows on from previous singles released last year, including the poignant ‘Could You Love Me?’, the infectious ‘Sunlight’ and ‘If I Die, Then I Die’ which has garnered him international recognition most recently on Jack Saunders Next Wave segment on BBC Radio 1.
Emerson Snowe impact on music in 2019 will be felt internationally at his live shows and with his debut EP release. His profoundly honest yet unconventional approach to music has already attracted the attention of many of his idols. The last twelve months have seen him garner widespread support from fellow artists, industry and fans, with national tours across Australia for King Krule, Ariel Pink and GUM, along with his own debut headline shows in Australia, the UK, Europe where he will return again this year.
