Port Macquarie (NSW) singer-songwriter Emma Dykes has released a new single, ‘The Riddle of Life’, which is also the title track of her second album, which was recorded with producer Matt Fell in Nashville and which will be released in January 2020 to coincide with the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Dykes, who also works as a nurse, wrote the song for her dear friend Ric, who is also a nurse and who was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Dykes wrote the song to remind us all to live life to the fullest while they can. The song was also her way of dealing with Ric’s diagnosis and fight for life. Dykes is known for her heartfelt lyrics, and this beautiful song is sincere and hopeful.
One of Ric’s children, her daughter Matilda, appears in the accompany video clip performing a dance she choreographed. The clip can be seen below.
