Dack Emerson is an LA based songwriter and recording artist.
Latest News: My current single, “Rescue You” sounds a little like a throwback to an ’80’s Heartland Rock type song, not unlike some of what is coming out of Music Row right now. It’s just a first in a series of songs to be released this Summer (2020) with some videos as well.
Dack, thank you for joining us today at VQS. Take us back in time to how you first fell in love with music.
My exposure to music started very young with my parents being avid fans of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, to name a few (my Mother even liked Madonna) so that coupled with my older brother having Top 40 radio blasting through the house 24/7, I had heard and seen, (MTV too) quite a variety of music before actually buying my first 45. I gravitated to most anything from Dance-Pop to Country-Rock. Though the one common thread thru all the genres was that captivating hook that not only had me singing along in the first 60 seconds but, would be as memorable years later as a fond reminder of my past experiences and good times. Which leads us to the song-writing process for me as well…it’s that catchy melodic part of a song that comes to me first, sometimes with a catchphrase, sometimes not but, lyrics usually then filter-in to give it a bit of a story. I’d be up for trying different techniques as well in bringing new song concepts to life because there’s nothing like that natural high that comes when the creative juices get flowing!
