Boasting a voice worthy of goosebumps and a fresh folk-pop sound, the upcoming EP The Shape of Light from Brisbane songstress Miss Elm is set to build on her existing crown as Ukulele queen while also exploring new territory for this endearing artist.
Armed with a 3-octave range and ninja-esque ukulele skills, Brissie artist Miss Elm (aka Erin Harrington) is an undeniable breath of fresh air, weaving evocative narratives via folksy pop with effortless, charming ease. And while this gal is certainly no one-trick pony, it's on Miss Elm's most recent material that we see her boldly step outside her comfort zone and into a universe of old-world charm and modern flair - a tact that shall no doubt be spied on her upcoming debut EP The Shape Of Light due out on February 6.
“I created this EP as I was learning how to understand the unfolding of a new chapter in my life, whilst using my Ukuleles as a tool. I want to my fans to feel as if they’ve been on the journey with me as we unpack themes of endurance, growth, love, fresh starts and expression” – Miss Elm
But it's not just the new tunes that are set to delight next month, with Miss Elm ready to roll with some live shows kicking off in her hometown on the day of The Shape Of Light's release, bringing her trusty ukulele and live-looped production along for the ride, with support from two local Brissie singer-songwriters Maisy Taylor and McCaw rounding out what is set to be a series of extra-special evenings. Tour dates below, and be sure to get your ears on The Shape Of Light when it drops into the world on February 6. More info HERE.
