As EMMO (Emmet Crotty) goes from strength to strength the release of his second single ‘Lemon Sun’ really cements his position as one of Ireland’s most exciting upcoming artists. An upbeat, contagiously optimistic track that ironically charts the end of a long-term relationship.
Fresh off the stage from The Marquee in Cork, opening for The Coronas, Emmo’s live rendition of ‘Lemon Sun’ has been receiving rapturous applause! Lyrically relatable and musically impressive ‘Lemon Sun’ by Emmo has a similar energy to Paul Simon’s ‘Call Me Al’, with an infectiously modern pop rap hook.
Speaking about the track Emmo said “ I coined the term ‘Lemon Sun’ as the period of time you go through after a breakup. Its basically the complete opposite of the Honeymoon Period. What’s the opposite of honey – the bitterness of a lemon and the opposite of moon is Sun. Hence Lemon Sun! We’ve all been through a ‘Lemon Sun phase’ and this track is my tribute to that.”
‘Lemon Sun’ has all the trademarks of a summer hit with the traditional breakup message. It’s about what you’re missing most about that person, what you want more of, what you feel you can’t live without but mostly the small, tiny, parts of a relationship you miss the most.
Fresh off the stage from supporting The Coronas and a series of sold out headline shows in Winthrop Avenue, Whelans, The Workmans Club and a German tour, EMMO and is at the cusp of an industry breakthrough.
Having just released his debut single ‘Still’ in April ’22, Emmo is receiving huge support across national and regional Irish radio (Today FM, 2FM, Red FM, BBC Ulster, KCLR, KFM, Ocean FM, Northern Sound and RTE recommends playlist) as well as across German, UK and Greek radio.
Invited by Ovation Guitars to perform at The German Songwriter Awards in Berlin. His song “Little Bird” received critical acclaim from a panel of industry judges including Universal Music & Sony Music making it through to the final stage.
A unique singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with comparisons from Nathanial Rateliff to Brian Deady to Ed Sheeran – EMMO’s single songster stage presence combined with his impressive vocal range and energy are leading him to create excitement across the music industry.
