Gliding


With her album Gliding, Emily Herring delivers what Chris Smith of Country Music People describes as “a delicious undercurrent of Outlaw running through a selection of swing, heartbreak, introspection and damn good fun.” Gliding is her fourth record and was produced by legendary instrumentalist Steve Fishell and released in October 2017. Staying true to her roots, with this album she remains reverent of the past while evolving a sound all her own.


She moves here through Western swing, gypsy jazz and traditional hard country influences, and her soaring vocals and distinctive twang set her apart from the rest. She pulls no punches, and her hard-hitting-no-frills crooning earned her a 2015 Ameripolitan Award Nomination for her record Your Mistake. The album also won her the Carl T. Sprague Award from the Texas Music Awards, an honor she shares with only one other recipient, Michael Martin Murphey.

The motion of Gliding takes the listener through Western swing, gypsy jazz and traditional honky tonk influences, as her soaring vocals and distinctive twang highlight the journey. She pulls no punches, and her hard-hitting-no-frills crooning earned her a 2015 Ameripolitan Award Nomination for her record Your Mistake. The album also won her the Carl T. Sprague Award from the Texas Music Awards, an honor she shares with only one other recipient, Michael Martin Murphey.

  

Her songs are poetry, wrought with pedal steel, dobro, telecaster, a careful reverence, and an honest eye. Stretching across Texas and the new West, the songs recall the last fifty years of country music in a sound all their own. Now, with Gliding, she's able to take her music to a new level.
