This is an acoustic cover of Emily by Joanna Newsom, from the masterpiece Ys album.

I cut out the second section, but it's still bloody long - just enough space to fit on my camera. And yes, I know I should have sung "stone" instead of "bone" in the final chorus, but I'm not doing it again.

The song is inspired by Joanna's sister Emily, an astrophysicist, who contributed backing vocals to the Ys track.

I play in a band called The Phosphenes and you can watch the music video for No Through Road here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMvV-...
