Tramlines 2016: Emma Crowder @ The Cathedral
Review of Emma Crowder’s Tramlines slot at The Cathedral on the Saturday.
Hitting the Cathedral Saturday afternoon was singer-songwriter Emma Crowder. Despite the very warm and sticky atmosphere inside, Emma certainly attracted quite the crowd. Sheffield born and bred, Emma has been playing the Sheffield circuit for quite a few years. Her latest EP Seasons has been met with quite some critical acclaim, and she came to Tramlines with a mix of old and new hits.
The Cathedral was the perfect setting for Emma’s gorgeous and captivating voice. Echoing through the room were her soulsearching lyrics, perfectly accompanied with the rest of her live band. The maturity of her song-writing is quite remarkable given her young age, and it’s clear something in her music resonates with the audience as the place is packed and empties as soon as her set finishes.
Overall, for a Saturday afternoon (after many drinks Friday night), Emma’s set was the perfect start to Saturday at Tramlines. Her latest EP Seasons is some of the best song-writing to come out of Sheffield in recent years; I would definitely recommend.
