TUNE emma miller - Merry Go Round (Scott Colcombe Version)
Producer/songwriter and artist Scott Colcombe has reworked this alt-singer/songwriter track by emma miller into a truly original remix, including a brand new verse featuring Colcombe himself.
Long time friends, Scott and Emma had been looking for an excuse to work together for some time when she played him the single back in 2018. Jumping at the chance to remix the song and very familiar with his friend's songwriting style, Colcombe approached it with a justified confidence. With his original use of sampling and keen ear for melody and arrangement, the result is more than you'd expect from a remix and truly showcases the musicality and songwriting talents of both artists.
Merry Go Round was a tongue and cheek commentary about how bitter sweet it can be to see others doing well. Despite being a successful writer/producer himself, Colcombe heavily related to this idea and went so far as to give his own spin on things with an additional verse. You hear him singing “All my friend’s hit the big time, I’ve hardly begun” giving an insight into the thoughts and fears that plague a lot of people working in the creative industries.
