TVD First Date | Emily Easterly

TVD readers might recall Emily Easterly from her first 'First Date' appearance alongside J Seger last month. The Brooklyn based songwriters teamed up to release the first in a series of 45rpm split singles with “Please, Please Say Goodnight”/ “City Love Is Strange.” Emily returns by her lonesome this week with a glimpse into her creative process:

"When I moved up to New York from Richmond, VA I knew that I wanted to do a new recording but I didn’t know where or with who. After gigging around the city for a couple months I met Chris Cubeta who has a band, Chris Cubeta and the Liars Club as well as a studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn called Galuminum Foil. We worked out a deal to go into his studio and do one song together to see how well we worked together and then go from there. In that day we finished, “Shadows (Oh Honey)”. I felt such a renewed sense of excitement and energy in what I was doing after recording this one track with Chris. I knew that this would be the place to do the whole record. I have never been happier with the way a recording turned out as I was with “Heart Comma Heart”. “Shadows (Oh Honey) is still one of my favorite tracks on the record. I am most proud of “Heart Comma Heart” out of the four releases that I have done".
