Just added to the Jukebox:
Emaline is an Australian who lives in Berlin and is vegan.
She has a new EP out and is touring, stopping in Merseyside next month.Her veganism:
“I am vegan for the animals, for my health and for the environment. I am against all kinds of violence and try to educate and inform people gently about veganism through my music, the choices I make and the organizations and businesses I support.”
An excerpt from an interview she gave to The Trendy Vegan this year:
What inspires you? About what do you write?
“I write about love just like most songwriters do but I also try to write about the darker sides of life like depression (which I suffered from terribly until I changed my life and became a full time musician/vegan) as well as travel, nature, animal rights and a lot more.”
It can be challenging to following a vegan diet. Do you do any of your own gardening?
“I have a small indoor/window garden. This past year I have planted 3 types of tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, kohlrabi, Swiss chard and cucumbers so far and of course loads of herbs. I began foraging a lot this year and made my own honeys/syrups out of dandelion and red clover and collect a lot of nettle, dandelion leaves for salads, stews and stir fry. In a few weeks I will be collecting elderberries for syrup and quince for marmalade. I also make my own raw almond milk and apple sauce from local apple trees.”
Emaline spends a lot of time writing intense and thought-provoking folk pop for piano, acoustic guitar, celtic harp and sometimes whatever else she has lying about the place. Some say she sounds a little like Kate Bush or Tori Amos, but she also loves a lot of Scandinavian music: music that invokes the weather like storms and warm sunsets. In 2010 Emaline moved from Toronto Canada to an isolated fixed caravan in rural Eastern Germany close to the Polish border where she lived for a year and a half before finally settling in Berlin. Since that time she has performed over 300 shows all over Germany, Europe, Australia and Canada, creating a dedicated following and becoming well known for her raw and passionate live performances.
