It was one of those late night shoots, December second in 2013. I arrived at the Prinzenbar only short after the show was over. I had promised myself to another gig that night. Which brings me to hope that Emily will be back in Hamburg sometime soon since my glorious helper Pablo confirmed that her performance was simply amazing.
We met up in the backstage area, where plans on how and where to consume an after show-whisky where being made.
Also hanging about backstage was André Itjes from Tide radio who spontaneously asked if it was ok to hang along.
Finally we all went to the band apartment and set up while Emily was getting into night gear.
The whiskey ended up on the bedside table. And then Emily did this wonderful acoustic in bed with version of “Los Angeles”:
As it was late and I was tired I asked my wonderful assistant (and wonderful photographer!) Pablo if he was up for doing the interview. I’d say that went quite charmingly:
I was especially happy to hear Emily talk about podcasts as I was having a heavy podcast listening phase at the time I met her. So we talked a little bit more about podcasts and Emily was so nice to send me a list of her favorite podcasts.
After we said our goodbyes André spontaneously asked me to do a little interview for his broadcast. Gladly he hasn’t used the material yet. I don’t think I sounded very coherent. But we have plans for doing something new some time soon.
