“Rising from a slumber, did we sleep all winter long?” asks Emily Millard (formerly known as Miss Emily Brown) in her new offering, the first in six years. Millard’s seasonally appropriate “Paradise” tells the story of a long winter’s walk on Quadra Island, off the eastern coast of Vancouver Island, and the eventual coming of the splendour of spring.
The emotive single previews what her long awaited forthcoming album By Heron & By Season, due out Fall 2016, will sound like. By Heron & By Season is produced by Sandro Perri and will be accompanied by a collection of poetry by the same name.
