Blimey time has flown since doing the crowdfund in March, even with all the restrictions. What an odd year ey? I’m still very THANKFUL to all that helped out with sharing, liking and/or investing to get the £150 raised! I know I didn’t get to my bold target of £800, but this doesn’t mean the LP will be any different. I have since been saving, practicing and getting all the more excited to create the 7 songs finally, with the planned atmospheric layers and effects, using various instruments!
Looking back to the start of the year (images above) and remembering the buzz, I’m so glad I got to go to the couple open mic nights and gigs before lockdown and like many I’m obviously missing it! Luckily I’ve managed to get a bit of a creative fix, by putting some films together over at Window View playlist. If fancy a watch, teddies in Mistress will appreciate it loads and Faded Away got shared on rotorvideos monthly playlist so it must be good right? 🙂
Since which, I have found joy helping out with the poly tunnel of fresh salad, veggies and more, done phone quizzes and continued the doodling. Then I finally had the chance to play again, testing my memory and voice. Got to fill a slot alongside Isobel at quiet yet lovely Bwlch Bychan Festival and then met a few mates and jammed out some songs in Carmarthen Park Lodge thanks to Andy. Alongside this, I’ve uploaded a couple clips of me practicing on Louise and The Feathers, which led to finally doing a live stream getting some adrenaline and great feedback. But yeah still not quite live LIVE.
So more recently, I have been reading about the ways to get immediate response when songs are shared. It included the benefits of social media, ways of getting photography, press releases, blogs and radio slots alongside booking gigs and the real importance of a mailing list. Am so excited to get this all underway and once have the songs studio recorded, mixed and mastered, it will be all the more real. I aim to have ‘Reflection’ across the various platforms by MAY 2021 and hopefully some gigs booked, so can see each other face to face and enjoy music proper LIVE again, even if still have to maintain distance. In the mean time, I’m going to do regular updates here and via email, so if want to be in the know please join below.
Thanks! Stay safe. Emily Louise Farr. #LaTF

Am so pleased to say Window View EP is now fully up on numerous platforms. It symbolises the idea of looking out and imagining a dream, but can’t quite reach it. For me this is the creation and sharing of my songs, which I’m finally ready to do. The tree then adds an idea of deep roots, steady growth and branches (aka paths leading to various connections, locations and opportunities). Currently with the leaves fallen, which links to the idea of second chances as they have added to the soil more knowledge and strength for future vision.
If would like an actual CD (£4.50) with wonderful Stickerapp decoration and signature, please just drop me an email at email@example.com or message on facebook page.
No messing around though, as have so many songs and am uber keen to get another EP out. This time called ‘Reflection’ with FIGHT IT, MILL POND (written by George Sandifer-Smith), FIGURE IT OUT (written by Wendy), SUPER WOMAN and DARKNESS recorded at a studio with full band vibe. Am now crowdfunding too, so you can be a part of making it all the more awesome with gift, gigs and giggles to share!

So I have finally made time to give sharing my songs a go! Revisiting early written originals (in 2017), I decided to start a fresh using my middle name “Louise” representing the roots of my music passion, alongside “and the feathers” linking to spiritual perspectives, a love of nature and the hope to fly sharing feathers of inspiration. Having better feedback than ever imagined, at various open mics, numerous gigs and the tad bit of busking I’m extremely excited to do more! Rich Tea Biscuit will be the latest single to be added to “Through the Window” EP, so keep an eye out on these to be updated: Facebook / Twitter / Spotify / Soundcloud / Youtube / Bandcamp
“Using my middle name Louise, representing the root of passion for music and words. Now with the aim, to create songs that will hopefully share like tweeting birds. Opening the cage, showcasing the rage, for all to engage, aiming to inspire and create a fan base of feathered herds.”
