Everybody has a story to tell

Somebody’s Story is a project to gather these stories and bring them out into the world as songs – giving a voice to people whose stories might not otherwise be told. Since the project began six months ago, stories have been shared from as far afield as America and Kenya; from the 1950s to the present day; by men and women and young people.

Order the EP!

On Friday 31st March I launched the final track in the Somebody’s Story series, Through Your Eyes – making the full EP available for the first time. You can order the EP on iTunes here. The song offers a glimpse of the world as seen by 14 year-old James, who has autism. You can read the moving story that was shared with me by his mother, Nancy, here.

The writing continues! I am working on new songs all the time and would love to hear from you if you have a story to share. Please get in touch at emma@emmaballantine.com.
