Your Best Life Nashville
THE CURRENT STATE OF EMILY DACCARETT
Find out what Emily Daccarett's music is filled with right now in the current state of her career.
What changes are happening in your life these days when it comes to your career?
I feel like I’m starting to catch up with myself. It no longer seems as if I’m split down the middle and desperately trying to make time for each of my passions, fashion design and music. Even though I keep adding more and more projects, there is a healthy flow that keeps me motivated and excited about everything that we are doing. I’m really happy right now with my career. I’m enjoying the place that I’m at right now, of course I want to grow, but practicing patience has brought me so much peace!
What is the current state of your music?
It’s filled with nostalgia, fantasy, love, loss, and hope. I write from the heart, and I keep getting pulled in that direction. We’ve lost so much these past two years, and I refuse to lose my dreams as well.
How are you choosing to spend your time when not making music?
When I’m not working on music, I’m working on fashion! I’m a fashion designer and although I have been focusing more on my music this past year, I’m coming back to my brand with a fresh pair of eyes. I love learning and coming up with new prototypes. It’s so important to keep on challenging and working on your craft!
What do you take away from the music that inspires you?
How imaginative and timeless they are. I take inspiration from Kate Bush, David Bowie, Vanessa Paradis, Jane Birkin, Lenard Cohen, and Lana Del Rey.
What is the most important foundation to creating a fulfilling career in music?
I think for me it has been understanding and connecting with my own desire to create music. I find it difficult to write without establishing an emotional connection to my lyrics. For that reason I may take longer than I would like to come out with new music, but to write without intention leaves me feeling empty.
What about a fulfilling life?
I think balance is important! You have to constantly push yourself in order to grow and explore new ideas, but at the same time you should know when it's time to take a step back and enjoy where you are at the moment.
Leave us with a personal story that connects to your latest single?
I went to stay with my parents during lockdown and I slept in my childhood room filled with Tinkerbell everything! Being in that setting brought back so many memories and dreams I once had. It’s what inspired Fading Memories, as we grow up, we feel as if we have to let those childhood dreams go but they are a part of us, and we shouldn’t be afraid to embrace them.
