Hello, welcome! 

Thanks for swinging by to check out my page - I set this up because I really like both making music AND eating food, and I'd like to do a good job of the first one for all of your enjoyment. 

My name is Emma Langford, I'm an independent and unsigned singer-songwriter from Limerick, Ireland.

I'm currently creating my second album following the success of the first one (Quiet Giant) - I picked up an RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award, and nominations for international awards like the Irish Post Music Award and the Malzhaus Plauen Folkmusikpreis off the back of it.
Supporting me here on Patreon means I can really throw myself into the process of making this next one - so thank you! 

In 2016 I released a self-titled crowd-funded EP - the EP was in a sense a product of my lack of self-belief and abundance of anxiety at the time. I released a home video of my song Tug O' War which went semi-viral for a bit, and gave my online presence a nice push, and basically let the world know who I was and what I sounded like, so they started asking for a CD! 

In 2017 I released Quiet Giant - a really gorgeous, atmospheric 10-track album showcasing songs written across the previous 3 years. It was packaged in a Jacob Stack illustrated case, and features instrumental beauty from Hannah Nic Gearailt (Keys, Cork), Peter Hanagan (Double Bass, New Mexico), Ray Yrure (Drums, Virginia), Alec Brown (Cello, Arkasas) and Tadhg Murphy (Violin, Drogheda). 

Off the back of this release I did an international 100 date tour all over Europe in 2018. It was a special year. 

I'm in a place in my career and my life now where I it feels like time to tell new stories, and I want to throw everything at it so it's just as special as Quiet Giant. I'm working again with Grammy nominated production team the Production Suite, my regular comrades, sensational videographers, photographers and graphic artists, and a whole host of other brilliant humans to produce this. I  hope you can find a pound or two in your pocket to be part of the process!

$5 - Emma's Magic Marvelous Angels
$5 or more per month

Dear "EMMA", THANK YOU! 

 

This is a lot to give on a regular basis and I'm so so grateful. 


5 of your shiny quids might go toward petrol for my bandmates, new strings for my guitar, a return bus to meet my album producers, the cost of rehearsal space or the cost of actually recording some tunes. It's SO appreciated. 


In this tier you'll get everything that comes with the $2 tier, plus: 


 

  • A free digital download of my first album Quiet Giant 
  • Request privileges - when I announce that I'll be recording a song, at this tier your requests will be added to the vote. 
  • Exclusive insider behind the scenes footage during recording and gigging



Thank you x

$10 - You're Lovely
$10 or more per month

I wish the tiers weren't in dollars... So, right, if you're in Euros then your "just-under-€10" a month helps hugely, it covers most of a trip to Dublin, where I'll be traveling to a bit to work with my producers. 

It covers 5% of the monthly cost of rehearsal space rental which is vital for working on new material. 

It covers a third of the cost of petrol for one of my musical pals to travel to and from Cork for a rehearsal. It's HUGE. Thank you. 


In return for your patronage, you'll get everything the 2 and 5 dollar tiers get, plus: 

 

  • A patron-only 20% discount on any purchase from my online shop on bandcamp
  • A copy of the new album when it comes out with a personal hand-written thank you, and a ticket to the launch gig of your choice
  • Your name in the album credits
  • Dibs on new merch - just send me a message and I'll keep it for you 



Thank you!! 

$25 - An EMMA Squared
$25 or more per month

Ahh c'mere, you're too good. 

This is so generous of you, thank you.


25 could cover a bandmate's petrol costs to get to Limerick to work on some new tunes; it could go into the cost of our rehearsal space; it might cover a return bus trip around the country to meet other musicians to work on exciting new collaborations. It means the WORLD to me. 

 

At this tier, you get all the usual nice stuff mentioned above, PLUS: 

 

  • A $25 patron-only 30% discount on any purchase from my online shop on bandcamp
  • A special gift - a tee, a signed CD, a record, some handwritten lyrics? Send me a message if you have a special request. Otherwise it'll be a surprise!
  • Your name in my album & music video credits 



Thank you x

$50 Heroes
$50 or more per month

You're a Hero, like it says in the title. 


$50 a month or the Euro equivalent pays for 2 return trips to Dublin, or one return trip to Belfast. It covers a third of a musician's fee for a session; it covers mastering for a new song, or the fee for an hour of an engineer's time. 

 

For contributing so much to making sure I keep doing this, and can do it well, you'll get all the lovely stuff my other patrons get, plus:

 

  • A $50 patron-only 50% discount on any purchase from my online shop on bandcamp - message me for your code.
  • I'll send you a personalised musical birthday greeting for you or a friend once a year - send me a message when it's coming up! 
  • Guestlist for any gig of mine whenever you're in my town or I'm in yours 



Thank you so much for your help x

$150 - Hello, The Medicis?
$150 or more per month

Thank you, this is so kind of you. Did you know that at this tier, you're paying for half the monthly rental cost of a rehearsal space for the band? 

That's amazing. That's where all the magic happens, where we figure out out what the new songs are going to become. You'll get to see some of that as it happens, we'll be best friends, it'll be great. 


So of course as a thank you, as well as all the other patron perks, 

 

  • You and a friend are invited to come to sound check before a gig near you, as well as being on the guestlist for the gig itself. 
  • Random surprises in the post like postcards, magnets, badges. 
  • Take 70% off any purchase you make on my bandcamp site - just message me for your unique discount code.
