When you follow someone you mainly follow them because of their crafts, and when it comes to YouTubers it can sometimes feel as if you have a friend the other side of the screen. With that being said let’s look at today’s Music News Highlights…
Our Highlights will focus on;
– Emma Blackery Apple Event
– Foo Fighters Pop Up Pub
– Paramore Tour 3 Bonus Dates
Don’t know who Emma Blackery is, well you’re about to…
“I’m closer to a record deal, then I ever have been” Emma Blackery
Emma Blackery first started her channel to promote her music, after first going under the name ‘thesesilentseas’ she quickly changed it to copyright the name ‘Emma Blackery’ and the many variations that followed such as Anna Blackberry (…thanks, Tom Ska).
At first, she uploaded songs and covers and it was only when she saw a few of her own favourite YouTubers vlogging, she decided it was something she could do as well. Since touring with Busted her follow count has raised and not long after she released her EP ‘Magnetised’. Shortly after she also published a book titled ‘Feel Good 101‘.
Earlier this year Apple got in contact with Emma and her Manager Mark, to ask permission to use Emma’s Magnatised artwork. Without hesitation, both agreed and it was seen to be used to promote the new Apple MacBook early on in the year. Emma thought that was that. So yes you could say she might have received a shock on Tuesday Night when she was watching Rick and Morty in bed and found her phone lighting up with texts from friends demanding she check the Apple Event. There was her face front and center.
Needless to say this new found free publicity has done wonders for Emma with her EP reaching 36 in the Pop iTunes Album charts and opened many new doors that we will hopefully see more in the future. Personally, I hope this means we finally get that Album she has been wanting to make and I’ve been wanting to hear!
