“The major label co-writing circuit...it is corrupt and it can be messy, so I do feel quite protective of young people, especially young women…I just want them to be careful and have strong management behind them."
Katy J Pearson

Bristol country pop sensation Katy J Pearson discusses the difficulties, lessons learnt, the personal triumphs and growth leading up to her return to music and the release of her debut album. She also chats to Emily about her desire for longevity and how the events of 2020 have sculpted a rather different journey for many in music.

Emily also shines a light on recent highlights from our Edit selection, including new music from Album of the Month champion Ólafur Arnalds, the mighty Spectres, wunderful Tiña and punk craftsmen Adulkt Life.
