The 25-year-old singer was successful on the internet before unveiling a promising first album, “Sunday”, barely a month ago.
It is one of the new faces of the Printemps de Bourges 2022, which takes place this weekend: Emma Peters, a 25-year-old Lille girl, gave one of her first big concerts there. The singer performed in front of 6000 people to present her first album, Sunday, released just a month ago. “This form of insurance is to hide a lack of confidence!” She joked at the microphone of BFMTV between two rehearsals. Because Emma Peters has just emerged on the French pop scene, thanks to a surprise success on the web.
Guitarist, singer-songwriter, she started by posting covers on social networks. The first audience arrives via YouTube, and is growing in number:
“It did well on YouTube at first. It motivated me to keep producing content, and I decided to post a new video every Sunday. I got more and more views and likes. subscribers, and it made its way.”
But it was when she decided to publish her songs on streaming platforms that the listening figures exploded, and began to number in the hundreds of millions. The independent label Sooner or later then intervenes, and it is with him that she has gone out Sunday. A disc between pop and French variety carried by catchy singles, like Time passes Where Coiled.
“Each text represents a situation that I experienced”
“I composed it halfway during confinement,” says the singer. “There’s a whole part of angst about ‘what am I going to do with my life?’. I felt like I had something cool to do but I didn’t know how. I knew that I was going to change my life, and that worried me a little.” It is this anxiety that feeds some of his texts, when they are not bathed in poetry:
“I’m an eternal romantic, I fall in love every other day, so there are lots of stories of love, disappointment, hope, joy, sadness… it’s my life, it’s is very true. Each text represents a situation that I experienced.”
