In ‘Outrunning The Animal,’ every track is a metaphorical brushstroke painting a relatable and stunning portrait of the human soul. In her bluesy anthem “Wreckage,” Emily guides listeners through the stormy terrain of a bruised and battered heart. Her powerful vocals and expressive inflections skillfully entangle you in the narrative she weaves, creating a theatrical symphony of emotion. Stirring Americana with signature elements of jazz and blues, she invites listeners on a sonic journey through anger, shame, and the roller-coaster of emotion that comes with rejection in the aftermath of love.

A prelude to the EP, “Thief,” is a raw and poignant exploration of love lost. The revealing ballad calls on elements of jazz, folk, and pop with Emily’s distinct vocals effortlessly adding heart to the pulsing of the memorable beat. The lyrics are wounded, and tearfully passionate, capturing a unique duality of hurt and empowerment. As Emily lays bare her soul, the piano’s warmth and the strength of her vocals merge with the painstaking honesty of the melancholy lyrics. It’s a piece that effectively bottles feelings of abandonment and self-realization while championing accountability, agency, and not abandoning yourself even when love fades.

With the strum of a melodic guitar, Emily invites you into a vivid world where optimism blooms even in the darkest hours through “It’s Gonna Be Okay.” The track is an acknowledgment of the universal desire to believe that everything will be alright. As the music picks up, Emily’s vocals carry an emotional weight that resonates with the listener’s entire being. It’s a testament to her own healing, woven into the fabric of her songwriting.

In the euphoric experience of ‘Outrunning The Animal,’ Emily Nicole Green beckons you to explore the profound depths of humanity. Each note and lyric masterfully bottles the essence of authentic emotions, joining together for a cohesive body of work that lingers in your heart and sets a motivating fire to continue on the journey of self-discovery.
