Think UK country music doesn’t have what it takes to be up against the finest in the US charts? Think again. Emma and Jolie have already delivered a high quality sound and just with their debut single I Don’t Need A Man.
It’s so nice to hear the kind of stylings that made me fall in love with country music come from a UK artist. Emma and Jolie are certainly a country duo that are going to make waves within the UK and you wouldn’t be blamed for mistaking them for a US act either as the girls seem to have found the perfect sound that fits within both the UK and US sides of the genre.
The pop infused yet rocky edged tune is instantly catchy and no doubt the girls will have instant comparisons to that of Maddie and Tae and whilst they don’t sound like them vocally, I do agree fans of the US duo should fall in love with Emma and Jolie.
The attitude of the track is infectious and gets you motivated and feeling good and confident. Vocally the girls are sassy and cool and the song will stay in your head for a while and in a good way.
I look forward to hearing what else the girls have up their sleeve, especially a ballad to really hear those vocals shine.
About Emma and Jolie
Triple Fret Entertainment artists, female country duo Emma & Jolie, – comprised of Emma Walker and Jolie Harvey – has been a project long in the making. Having met back in 2015 at music college, the duo have been singing together ever since, honing their sound and songwriting, both together and through collaborative co-writing.
Influenced by the likes of Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift, the young duo bring together a mix of storytelling and modern country with sensational harmonies.
The duo have written with the likes of Emily Hackett, Lena Stone and Sammy Arriaga in Nashville and Laura Oakes and The Luck in the UK, before making their Nashville debut at Song Suffragettes, as one of the first British artists to do so as part of CMA awards week in November 2019.
Now in the studio with acclaimed producer Johnny Douglas (Take That, Whitney Houston, George Michael…) the duo have just released their debut single ‘I Don’t Need A Man’.
