Emily Jane White

About the greatness of romanticism (De la grandeur du romantisme)

42 min / Published

VIPop #38

Why is Emily Jane White today the most important voice of "Dark Folk"? ... Quite simply because she's above all a true artist, open to the world, who cannot be reduced to a musical trend ... Because in her work, she knows how to marry pastoral and luxuriance in a marvellous way and the form is always at the service of high-flying songwriting ... Because the emotion conveyed by her voice with its multiple possibilities is based above all on accuracy rather than on overbidding ... And because her words, concerned with environmental or feminist causes, are lived in conscience and not as opportunism ... A rare person and a precious artist.

Pourquoi Emily Jane White est aujourd'hui la voix la plus importante du « Dark Folk » ? … Tout simplement parce qu'elle est avant tout une véritable artiste, ouverte profondément sur le monde, qu'on ne peut réduire à un courant musical … Parce que dans son travail, elle qui sait marier à merveille le pastoral et la luxuriance, la forme reste toujours au service d'un songwriting de haute-volée … Parce que l'émotion véhiculée par sa voix aux multiples possibilités est basée avant tout sur la justesse plutôt que sur la surenchère … Et parce que sa parole concernée sur les causes environnementales ou féministe est vécue en conscience et non comme un opportunisme … Une personne rare et une artiste précieuse.
