We apologize for the poor sound quality is places during this interview.
Formed while studying music at the University of Cape Town, Emerger has had an overwhelmingly positive response since the launch of their project and release of their debut mini-album ‘Bloom’ in 2018. They’ve been making waves both nationally and overseas. Most notably, their debut single, ‘Break & Fall’ was a winner of the Avid and Abbey Road Studios International Song Contest, picked from nearly 5000 international entries. They had the opportunity to travel to Abbey Road Studios in London for the mastering of this winning song. They were selected as Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight for the month of July (2018). Their music has been featured on various Apple Music playlists, including 10 Albums You Must Hear This Month (July) as well as on the BBC Introducing radio show in the UK.
