Music is more interesting when it's difficult to define. Swedish newcomer Emma Elisabeth, in releasing her debut single "Soul Traveller", has situated herself in the small but ever-growing community of songwriters who will not conform to something as basic as one genre.
Irresistibly catchy, "Soul Traveller" has all the makings of a great pop song. But it's also got a driving, groovy that characterize most R&B of the day. Her vocal morphs from rock to pop to soul: smooth, undeniably sexy and blatantly refusing to be pigeonholed.
Written in a rehearsal room in East Berlin, "Soul Traveller" is produced and mixed by some of the best in the business. The production is classic, almost old-school and the track is lyrically cinematic, conjuring vivid elemental and celestial imagery. This is a song about finding "the one", about an emotional connection of such strength it causes your mind to bend ever so slightly.
