Emma EP

by Dave Hughes

Emma 04:30
Sometimes it feels like an anger, Sometimes it feels like a pain, From my heart to my head I feel dizzy, Every time that I hear your name. Time is a bitch, it's a cancer, It has taken a friend once again, Leaving a hole where our future memories won't be the same She said: "I don't want to see you again, if it means you have to see me in here" We should be up on the hills or out on a bike Doing whatever we like, I don't want want to see you again, if we have to see us in here. Sometimes it feels like an answer, sometimes it feels like a lie, LIke that dream that scares you forever, yet you still want to stay fast asleep. Yet, life has no rules and no order, Can't arrange it like food on your plate Live twice as hard as a tribute And patch up the hole in our hearts. I'm frozen in time by your camera, Frozen at a time in our lives, Where we would all go on forever, And always come back the same.


Friday 11th March sees the release of “Emma”, a fundraising charity single by Dave Hughes for the St Columba’s Hospice through Different Circle Records (Glasgow). The song will be widely available, primarily from Bandcamp to increase charity revenue, but also via iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and the rest.

The track is named in honour of his friend Emma Sheils who passed away in January 2016 after bravely fighting an aggressive brain tumour. As well as a close friend, she was also commonly seen as a photographer at concerts in and around Dundee and Edinburgh. Dave Hughes used one of her photos for the cover of last year’s “Rise, Again” album.

St Columba’s Hospice in Edinburgh were fantastic in making Emma as comfortable as possible in her passing days. Her father, Paul Sheils, is undertaking a charity bike ride from Edinburgh to Iona as part of the Celtic Challenge. Proceeds from the ‘Emma’ single will go towards his fundraising total.
