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.
I met Krista Shows at a songwriting competition in Asheville, North Carolina. Krista is a long limbed beauty from Mississippi, and proud. Her songs are soulful, moving, and authentic. She's a natural songwriter and her music is raw and unapologetic. This is not your mama's gospel.
