Singer/Songwriter Emily James is gearing up to release her debut album Til the Morning on Feb 9She began writing music at age 10, had polished her debut EP by 16, and is now set to release her full-length debut at age 18. We are thrilled to premiere the new single “If Walls Could Talk” today on GroundSounds. From the opening notes, you can tell her talent soars well beyond her years. The track is a beautifully constructed composition with big hooks and impressive vocals.

In her own words:

“The title, “If Walls Could Talk,” was the initial seed that inspired me to write the song. I loved the notion of a room being the witness to the downfall of a relationship in which neither person would admit it was happening. I sat down at the piano one day and started playing that opening melody and the words just sort of flooded out. It felt like one of those songs that was waiting to be written–it was a very organic process in that way.”
