In 2020, Australian singer-songwriter Emma Swift released an album of Bob Dylan covers called Blonde On The Tracks.
She never intended to release the covers when she started recording them a few years ago, and only started to entertain the idea when COVID hit and her touring income dried up. The fact that the album has garnered Emma worldwide acclaim is just another twist in a career full of them.
In some ways that career began when she was a music-loving kid growing up in rural Australia, before she moved to Sydney and started played in pubs and clubs. In 2013 she moved again, this time to Nashville to pursue music full time, and she's been there ever since.
We talk about that journey in this interview, as well as Emma's love of Bob Dylan, her earliest musical memories and much more.
