A girl and her guitar… le sigh. Emily Arin is a folk songstress whose voice and lyrics are on an entirely different plane than the one we know here in this world… and with each syllable and note your heart is reminded of your own humanity. She delicately moves through her new album, Patch of Land, with the grace of a barely earth-bound nymph: whimsical and evoking, lyrical beauty suspended against a wall for all to admire.
Arin hails from Montour Falls in Schuyler County, New York, and is on the cusp of exploding and enchanting the world with her sultry melodies. Citing Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Nick Drake among her influences, she takes these geniuses to heart and exposes herself as an old soul wise beyond her years.
One listen of “When You Knew Me When,” will make you realize crushes like this don’t come around very often:
And I’m back to when you knew me when
Before my heart learned to pretend
It feels so good to remember
You captured something in your tender words
I thought was gone left on the lawn of that summer
When you knew me when
When we both felt born again
In finding the root of the stem
Arin’s candor on this new album is a deep look into the soul and experiences of this amazing artist. Scoop up this lil’ darling’s, Patch of Land, and a happy bunny you shall be.
