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.
Have I mentioned that my friend Brittany Ann is brilliant? No need to take my word for it. Check out this rad and hilarious song she wrote. We filmed this performance on a Saturday morning in my living room. Jackson Emmer nailed the audio recording.
This weekend Jackson and I helped our friend Brittany Ann record some new music. Brittany is a killer songwriter with a stunning voice - we were so happy to work with her! Check out her original song, "Sarah."
I'm lucky to be dating a super creative, oddball man. He's a musician, a songwriter, an artist, and a whole lot more. I love when our forms of expression cross over and we get to collaborate, especially on spontaneous and casual video shoots like this one. All the audio was from my DSLR and, as you can see, the apartment was in its natural state of disarray. Enjoy Jackson Emmer's original song "Well Intentioned Stalker Blues."
Jackson Emmer: Songwriting, vocals, guitar
Mike Facey: guitar
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.
