Emily Kimball - Forget The Way

posted 23 Jul 2018 by Krister Axel
You can hear echoes of something like a Fleetwood Mac in the happy marriage of rock flavors with the soul of a country ballad and the precise use of electric guitar to adorn the mix with blues licks.

It's a happy-go-lucky 2 and 4 on the snare, some glockenspiel, and a really tasteful lap steel, along with a smooth and luscious sense of melody. On her new single Forget The Way, Emily Kimball explores her full range as an indie rock songstress, peppering the Americana-inspired backdrop of drums, bass, and guitar with a wistful and organic lead vocal.

You can hear echoes of something like a Fleetwood Mac in the happy marriage of rock flavors with the soul of a country ballad and the precise use of electric guitar to adorn the mix with blues licks. The entire production virtually glistens from a distinctly live sound and a well-written crossover song with straight pop appeal.

Emily Kimball is a singer-songwriter now living in NYC. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
