With a predisposition to self-criticise and a talent for turning that into art, Bo Milli is an essential new voice in music. Through her diaristic lyrics, the super smart environmentalist writes hook after hook as she navigates her inner conflict. And indeed, in putting her own life into words, she has unknowingly narrated our collective existential angst. “Writing music is an emotional outlet, but it’s also a puzzle,” she says, reflecting on her craft. “Sentences come to me and I try to make the pieces fit together. And if just for a moment my music is a good thing in someone’s life, then I will take any opportunity to play it.”

Siena Christie Shares Story of Transgender Wife’s Transition in Haunting Folk Ballad ‘Northen Lights’
“Northern Lights is a song I wrote for my partner of 11 years. At the time I wrote it, she was experiencing severe depression and anxiety, from having hid her true identity (as a trans woman) all her life. I felt cold, alone, and helpless watching her suffer. So I wrote the song partly to soothe myself, and partly to show compassion for her, in hopes she too might feel less alone.” Siena shares.

Emma Ruth Rundle has announced a new EP Orpheus Looking Back, a small collection of unreleased songs from the Engine Of Hell sessions, her highly lauded 2021 album. Set for a March 25th release via Sargent House, these three bare and intimate performances are in keeping with the album’s unadorned style. “Pump Organ Song” the first to be shared from the EP, was written spontaneously in the studio in response to her failing marriage and the availability of an old pump organ in the tracking room. Rundle Notes: “In the year that has come since recording the song, I feel more and more connected to this love song. It is still speaking to me about the process of parting ways and how romantic arrangements change and relationships close.”
