Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick Episode 010: Emma Wallace

In this episode, I have an in-depth conversation with the songwriter, composer, and independent music entrepreneur Emma Wallace.

Emma Wallace has a dozen albums, EPs, and singles to her credit, including her latest, Immortal (available August 31, 2018).

With over a decade of hard-fought experience building a career that supports a family of four through her music, Emma’s got a lot to share about how to be a committed, steadfast, positivity-focused independent creator in the face of professional, personal, and financial challenges.

No matter your creative endeavor, you’ll find a lot of inspiration in her story.
