Emily Barker’s new album was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with Grammy winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price) and an all-star cast of Memphis session players.  Sweet Kind of Blue is her first full studio album since 2013’s critically lauded Dear River and marks a new sound as Barker finds herself returning to where her love of music started: far away from Memphis, singing her heart out to Aretha Franklin records in her bedroom in sleepy Bridgetown, Western Australia.

Emily Barker is best known as the writer and performer of the award-winning theme to BBC crime drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh. She has released music as a solo artist as well as with various bands including The Red Clay Halo, Vena Portae and Applewood Road.
