My husband, Jackson Emmer, wrote this melancholy song about trying to "make it." We recorded it not long after the 2016 election, so it's extra full of desperation and sadness. Here's a song for all you creative, passionate folks out there trying to make a living and create art at the same time.
Krista Shows is a charismatic Asheville-based songwriter. Originally from Mississippi, her songs are deeply personal and evocative. Enjoy this original music, and her righteous voice. Audio by Jackson Emmer.
Last week I shot Jackson Emmer and his band playing some of his original music in our living room. It was an upbeat, casual shoot, featuring the excellent guitar-work of Mike Facey and the skillful trumpet and keys of Chris Rose. We did a couple takes of this song, and this goofy, playful version was my favorite. Audio by Jackson Emmer.
