Seattle based musician and songwriter Emma Danner believes her songs are never truly “finished.” By enlisting a fluid cast of players to perform the songs she’s been writing as Red Ribbon for the past decade, the sound, arrangements, and meaning behind Emma’s writing is always evolving.
“The biggest blessing with music is that you get to play it with other people,” Emma explains. “Being able to communicate and experience things with others through that channel is really powerful.” Through the process of bringing her simple yet compelling solo demos to a cohort of musicians she trusts creatively, Emma has allowed her songs to take a new form every time they’re played. By doing so, Emma has built a body of work through Red Ribbon that not only belongs to her, but to everyone participating with her in the moment.
Emma constructed the first Red Ribbon live band in Seattle. Early on, Emma pressed a string of homemade cassettes, full of wistful guitar riffs, fuzzy drum loops, and Emma’s bewitching vocals. After taking Red Ribbon on the road for a handful of nationwide tours that she booked herself, Emma set out to record in a proper studio for the first time in 2018. Dark Party beautifully captures Emma’s foreboding songwriting in a varied sonic palette that is the result of the band’s many live interpretations.
Red Ribbon’s sophomore LP is set to be released by Danger Collective Records in 2021.
