Emma Gatsby – 2 Steps

Emma Gatsby - 2 Steps

Emma Gatsby – 2 Steps

Sassy 19 year old Emma Gatsby knows what the deal is, and she isn’t letting anyone get in her way.

Hailing from New York, Emma learned to play the piano and cello at the tender age of four, with her mother teaching her, until she sadly passed away when Emma was aged nine. Following this, Emma picked up a guitar and decided to teach herself to play. She was writing songs by aged eleven, but was using music as a way to distract herself from the realities that she found herself in, especially after her father passed away.

Of her latest song, Emma says, “‘2 Steps’ is a song I wrote about a relationship or should I say several relationships. As much as it’s based on my real life experience with an ex, it was more so, my realization that I was always the one doing the damage first that inspired the song.”

Sounds like: Violet Days, Dominique, Kissy, Amy Guess, Harper, Sizzy Rocket, SUMif, Sibling

Meet SUMif, a San Francisco-based electro pop producer and singer.

After studying music business at NYU, SUMif moved to Nashville to write country music. However, it turns out that music that producing electronic music was more her forte.

One of the results is ‘Malaga’.

Of the track, SUMif explains;

“Malaga” is about my favorite thing in the world – dancing my face off at music festivals with my favorite friends. I wrote this song about those magical moments, an ode to everyone who I’ve ever danced with, in the desert, in a French-Canadian rainstorm, in the fields of Golden Gate Park, on the Isle of Wight, or while watching a rainbow meet the sunset over The Gorge. Those are among my favorite memories, so I tried to capture those feelings in a song.”
