Emma Stevens achieved mainstream success when her single Riptide reached 150,000 downloads in a single week on iTunes.
Her music has been used on TV with clients including BBC and ITV – here are her apps of choice:
1. Guitar Toolkit
This is a fantastic training app for chord and rhythm skills. It’s great because it has every chord under the sun for mandolin, banjo, ukulele, acoustic, etc. If I’m struggling to find a chord voicing in the studio when I’m writing, I use this app.
This is a hilarious music making app! Not very useful, other than putting a smile on your face. I use it on tour and play “guess the riff” with my band.
3. Voice Memos
My memos are completely disheveled at the moment, but I try and name each of my voice memos. I really only use this device to record song ideas or band rehearsals.
I use it so that people can sample my music. But I also use it privately and set up internal links for the industry.
