Western Australian singer-songwriter Emily Joy has leapt into the iTunes singles chart with her new single, ‘Barricade’ – in fact, only Keith Urban is keeping her from the top spot. The single is taken from her upcoming EP.

Emily is well pedigreed, having studied at the Berklee College of Music, Academy of Country Music and West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. She’s also performed at the renowned Bluebird Café in Tennessee (made famous to the rest of the world in the TV series Nashville).

Here’s the video for ‘Barricade’, shot in the beautiful Southern Highlands of New South Wales, not far from Sydney.
