Quite som resume:-

Hailing from Bridgetown, Western Australia, Emily Barker is a compelling songwriter with a gift for weaving melody and words. Her talent is perfectly complimented by the magnificent arrangements of her band The Red Clay Halo, whose rootsy ensemble playing underpins Barker's agile vocal blend of strength and fragility.

Together they have recorded three albums: the first was ‘Photos.Fires.Fables.' (2007) - an eclectic tapestry of old-time narratives weaving gothic stories of fire, tragedy, love and hard lessons... 

‘...sharply observed, original songs ...adventurously embellished by gypsy flourishes and haunting desert echoes that'd be at home on a Calexico album'

'This is a gorgeous, sincere voice that grabs you and won't let go'  The Sun
This was followed by ‘Despite The Snow' (2008) which was recorded in just four days over a snowy Easter weekend in Norfolk. Critically acclaimed in the UK and Australian music press, its opening track ‘Nostalgia' became the Bafta-winning theme tune to BBC One drama Wallander starring British actor Kenneth Branagh. The music went on to win a BAFTA and a Royal Television Award.

February 2011 saw the release of ‘Almanac,' immediately attracting strong support from BBC radio with sessions for Cerys Matthews on 6 Music and Radio 4's Loose Ends, and single 'Little Deaths' picked as Record of the Week on Nemone's 6 Music show. A stream of sold-out UK tour dates followed, culminating in a rapturously received show at London's St Giles-In-The-Fields church at which 'Almanac' was performed in its entirety including a stunning, stark version of 'Pause'. This song has since been used as the theme tune to the BBC2 noir thriller The Shadow Line which received critical acclaim.
