Emmrose’s new single ’17 Inside’ reveals what she experienced while she was 17 during the pandemic to find comfort in this world that was unforgiving as she presented candid feelings of change. We had the pleasure of interviewing Emmrose, and here is what she had to say:
Q: Thanks for taking the time to interview with Music & Fashion Blog today. Please tell us who you are, what you do, and a little bit about yourself?
EMMROSE: Hi! Thank you so much for having me! My artist name is Emmrose, and I’m an NYC based indie songwriter. I feel as though I’ve been writing music forever! Well at least for as long as I can remember. I began writing music seriously when I was 14, and I’m 19 now. It’s pretty crazy how wild this journey has been.
Q: Loved your new single “17 Inside,” made me reminisce about the good times of being 17. Please share with us your story behind the track!
EMMROSE: My latest single 17 Inside was all about how… well… I was literally inside the entire time I was 17, through the whole pandemic ordeal. I feel like I grew so much as a person when I was 17, it was horrible that all that personal growth was literally kept within. I had a past friendship that exploded years ago, and right when things were about to patch up, the world shut down. During the pandemic, I wrote “17 Inside” to express my regrets.
Q: We saw you were in Paris. What was your favorite moment on the trip?
EMMROSE: Oh my goodness! Paris is truly the most magical city. Food! Fashion! The art! Everything about Paris is just so lovely. My favorite moments were visiting all the museums, and honestly just walking around! The neighborhoods (or as they say, the arrondissements!) are so fun to explore. I can’t wait to go back to Paris. I can really see myself living there someday – I should work on my French…
Q: Your style is very chic. Any trends in the industry that you like or stick out to you that might become significant in the coming year?
EMMROSE: Ooo, I’m so excited about this question! I love fashion so much, and it’s really fun for me to look out for trends and put together outfits. I’m really excited about spring fashion!
To be honest, I’m still loving 90’s trends, but with a spring twist, like preppy styles or a spring take on the fairy grunge aesthetic. Baby tees in fun pastels with a classic black mini skirt and platform boots and a vintage bag sound like a dream. I’m really excited to put together spring outfits!
Q: Tell us a few artists who you would love to have featured on one of your songs?
EMMROSE: Ahhh it’s just gotta be Lana Del Rey. I’m really loving her new singles off her new album. I just love her sound so much! I think Sabrina Carpenter has come out with such good music recently. It would be really neat to work with her, and Taylor too of course.
Q: What’s the best piece of advice another musician has given you?
EMMROSE: Hmm, this is honestly a difficult question for me to answer. I never really got any advice from musicians, other than my teachers telling me to practice more haha.
