The “Mmmm Song” is Emily’s third release, following on from the success of her debut single “Life” (2011) and her 4 track EP “Fred” released in 2012.
With the single “Life” Emily was playlisted on national radio throughout summer 2011. The track was chosen as Single of the Week on BBC Radio Ulster and gained airplay on Today FM, RTÉ and countless other regional and local stations.
Known for her hard work and determination, Emily is no stranger to the live circuit. Emily spent most of last year touring the length and breadth of Ireland. Last year, Whelan supported Jack Lukeman throughout his sell-out “27 Club” tour – playing in full capacity venues across the country including the likes of the Olympia Theatre, Dolan’s Warehouse, Everyman Palace Theatre and Derry’s Millennium Forum.
Emily has also supported the likes of Rory & the Island (Rory Gallagher, ex-Revs), The Henry Girls, Bagatelle and Aslan to name only a few.
Influenced by the likes of Alanis Morissette, Skunk Anansie, Tracy Chapman, KT Tunstall, James Morrison, Declan O’Rourke and Gemma Hayes, Emily’s ambition for this year is to reach more people with her music.
Emily is set to do just that with the release of the “Mmmm Song”, more touring, and a follow up EP and single later in the year.
To promote the release of the “Mmmm Song” Emily will be playing the following tour dates in June with more to be announced:
Fri 21st: CluBeo, Leo’s Tavern, Donegal
Mon 24th: Bennigan’s, Derry
Tue 25th: Ruby Sessions, Dublin
Thu 27th: Nancy’s, Ardara, Donegal
Sun 30th: Monroe’s, Galway
