Friends are Forever – Emma Pierson Releases “Don’t Forget to Remember Me” Single/Video
Hopeful Anthem to Staying Emotionally Close Through Physical Distance on Debut Release from Exciting New Songstress
August 2020 (New York, NY) — “Don’t Forget to Remember Me”, the new single/video from engaging young Austin based Singer/Songwriter Emma Pierson, is available on Spotify, YouTube and all the other major services today Friday August 28th 2020.
The song, co-written and produced by Emma alongside fellow students at Stages Music Arts in Maryland where she grew up, invites the listener to recall a time when someone they loved moved away, or when they themselves had to move away from their loved ones; as Emma was experiencing personally at the time during her move to Austin, TX last year.
Usually regarded as a sad moment, the situation could conversely be seen as a hopeful time to take a look back at the amazing memories that were created together, making a pact to stay in touch and stay just as close friends as before – despite the geographic challenges you will now face.
The message in Don’t Forget to Remember Me is also made especially relevant in the time of the COVID 19 pandemic, where social distancing and quarantines have made us all feel disconnected from our family and peers – regardless of location – sometimes even from those in our own house!
“Last year, one of my close friends moved to Ohio and I was feeling pretty sad about that; not knowing when we would see each other again”, Emma recalled, “Then it was decided that my family would be moving out of state as well; so I wrote this song as a way to help us never forget these friendships we built together”.
In addition to continuing her work with Stages, Emma’s eventual move to Austin has opened the doors for her to expand her musical endeavors under the guidance of celebrated singer/songwriters, Chad and Natasha Hudson, the proprietors of Hudson’s on Mercer.
She continued, “This song will hopefully serve as a reminder to everyone that we need to cherish the time we spend with each other, and that no matter the distance we need to work hard to keep in touch so we can make more memories together”.
Though “Don’t Forget to Remember Me” features a soulful, country-pop vibe, her upcoming tunes will showcase the evolution of her vocals, feature more mature themes, and highlight the influence of significant pop icons like Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift.
