Fandom: Emma Blackery

Hey everyone it’s Kern here. It’s time for another fandom related post. Obviously, these posts are all about the joy of fandom and cover topics that I’m a fan of. I decided upon another musical artist, it’s been a long time since I’ve written about one.

To be honest with you though, Emma Blackery’s musical talent is something I really should have brought up before. I absolutely love her music.

As a disclaimer, nobody solicited my opinion. Nobody offered me any sort of perk for writing about this artist. I have not met this artists personally. I have not seen her live, in concert.

I simply enjoy Emma’s music as found on YouTube and Spotify. That was my only qualifier that I found necessary in order to make the recommendation of Emma’s musical style.

If you would like to hear her content, I would advise that you follow the links to her YouTube channel or the songs I suggest below. She does plenty of other content over there too.

Artist: Emma Blackery – Emma’s Channel

If you know this artist at all, you may be aware that she’s done collaborative work in the past with Dave, from Boyinaband. That’s how I discovered her channel, in the first place. That was a long time ago though.

Emma has a range of vocal skill. Now, I’m no music critic so I won’t attempt to be one. I love it, that’s enough for me. There’s something about her style that’s so simple, yet, lyrically addictive. Her music will get stuck in your head if you listen to it enough.

I’m writing this blog post today because I’m eagerly awaiting Emma’s new single that she made a tweet about. I have to admit, I’m pretty hyped. Since that song isn’t out yet though, let’s discuss music you can already listen to.

I’d say look no further than “Agenda”. Why do I like it? This is snappy, upbeat, and very self-empowering. It’s the sort of song that I enjoy with the volume levels high as I do chores around the house or just in general. I relate to this song a lot. Hugely entertaining, and an all around good time, you can’t go wrong here.

Frankly, when I listen to an artist like Emma, I don’t resonate well with many of her deeper, more thoughtful pieces. Mind you, that’s just me. That isn’t a slight to her as a singer/songwriter. In fact, you may find that you like some of those tracks better.

I don’t dislike them, I just don’t relate as well personally to them. I just don’t have the same sort of life experiences that help me relate to it in the same way. I think that’s the key takeaway there.

If you do like music that tells a deeper story, I’d have to suggest “Don’t Come Home”. It’s a solid song, the vocals are brilliant, and the musical composition is nothing to sneeze at. I wholeheartedly recommend it because it’s just really good… but it is a bit sadder and introspective.

In the end Emma’s happier pieces, or those with an up-beat tone are the ones that draw me in the most. That being said, you should check out her channel and listen to her music for yourself.

One last song that I feel the absolute urge to add to this list, is Icarus. This song still brings me to tears to this day. Now the reason why it hits home for me is a personal journey. In my blog post “The First Brick” I talk about my cousin passing away and my life’s ambitions… what we always said we’d do… this song reminds me so heavily of those ambitions and my continued steps forward to reach them.

So, if you listen to nothing else… listen to that one… Icarus. If you like her musical style, support her, follow her on her platforms and jam out to that new single song “Cry to Your Mother” when it comes out.

Fandom: Krysta Youngs

Hey everyone, Kernook here. I’m back again, with another artist recommendation.

As for the usual disclaimer, nobody solicited my opinion. Nobody offered me any sort of perk for writing about this musical artist. I have not met this artists personally. I have not seen her live, in concert. I just like her music, and the covers she does of popular songs. That was the only qualifier I deemed necessary for writing this post.

That said, if you’re interested in listening to her musical talents, you should check her YouTube channel down below.

Artist: Krysta Youngs – Krysta’s Channel

Have you ever heard a female singer with a smokey voice, and instantly, your ears perk up? That is what happens when I listen to this artist. My ears perk, I zone in, and I just listen. Her music is good. I can’t say why exactly. I can’t even put my finger on it.

It’s just that good.

That indescribable draw is notable, and that’s why I wanted to suggest her music. The thing is, I’d like to say that I’m a decisive person. That things need to be able to tick certain boxes for me. For whatever reason, her music doesn’t need to. It’s not something I can shove into a mold. Strangely, I don’t really want to try, either.

I just want to enjoy her music for what it is. Her vocal quality is a rarity. I wouldn’t say her lyrics are too catchy, or too edgy. They’re not ear-worms and they don’t linger around long after the song is over. Instead, they’re impact in the moment.

Her lyrics have a subtext that really draws me in. That’s why, I think, I keep going back to her music. When I think of what I would like to suggest, it would have to be “My Funeral” It’s smokey, soft, slightly sensual, and something I always come back to.

Another great song with the same qualities happens to be “Silence and the Clock“. It’s a song I often zone out to as I let the sound sweep me away. The song was actually assisted by Robin Ghosh who ghost recorded all of the guitars used in the song.

Krysta Youngs is just a prolific singer and songwriter, there’s no two ways about it.

All in all, that’s the only reason I need to keep listening. I think there’s something to be said for music that doesn’t just speak to the listener. Songs that are self-serving speak about the artist. It reflects their deepest thoughts and desires, and there will always be value in that.

Like I said, give her music a try, and you might find out you like it.

Fandom: Musical Artist – Boyinaband

Hey’s everyone, it’s Kernook here.

I’m keeping it simple today as I sit here listening to music. I enjoy a lot of creators, and their music. I’d like to highlight that so. So here’s a blog post about one creator I enjoy listening to often.

As a standard disclaimer; I’m not being paid by Boyinaband for this post. Nobody solicited my opinion. I have not met this artist personally. I have not seen Boyinaband live in concert.

This is merely a fan related post. I highly encourage you check out his channel. In general you can find his music on YouTube and Spotify. I often frequent his channel to listen to his lyrical poetry. However, if that isn’t to your tastes he also produces other content too.

Dave From “BoyInABand”.

I tend to find his music to be pure artistry. That was the only qualifier that I found necessary to recommend his channel. If you would like to see his content for yourself, you should follow the link to his channel below.

Boyinaband’s YouTube Channel

His actual name is Dave. As a creator he loves music as a medium, and it shows. Dave often collaborates with other YouTube creators. Unlike his YouTube name implies, however, he is not currently in a band.

Not anymore, anyway.

Some of his collaborations include video game inspired raps from popular games at the time. Along with other YouTube creators, those catchy beats are notable all on their own. However, I want to highlight one of his songs that isn’t inspired by the gaming medium.

If I were to suggest a song from him, it would be “I’m not dead”. The weighted words in the song resonate with me. It speaks a great deal about the daily struggles a person might face, and the logic we use to contradict ourselves constantly.

It’s a song that underlines the reality that people are not infallible. That even if we hate aspects of our personality, we can choose to change ourselves. The message shows that even if that’s a difficult thing to do, it’s not impossible.

His lyrical rhymes dance a fine balancing act of negativity and hope.

This song is a critical look at the creator’s own human condition, imperfect as it is. At the end of the day, I relate well with music like his. If you’re interested, you should check out his channel.
