Hi, my name is Emile Nelson and I'm a freelance bass player/vocalist/songwriter from Sydney Australia.
For the last 26 years I've worked as a session musician and vocalist for many major artists and bands both here in Australia and abroad.*
The desire to make my own album has been ever-present for as long as I can remember and equal to that is my desire to learn and study as many different types of music as I can. As a result, I found myself on the path of being a session musician. I have loved working as a session musician on other people's projects and playing new music with various artists/musicians.
This album is the story of my journey and it has been quite a journey from inception to completion. It is narrated through an expression of musical creativity and lyrical interpretation. These are songs that connect and are meaningful to the core. They are soulful, uplifting, funky and raw.
