Grammy winning record producer Emile Haynie makes a career turning point by unleashing his first album as a recording artist, 'We Fall', complete with collaborations with some of the biggest talent in the music industry today. But who exactly is he?

Emile Haynie releases debut album 'We Fall'

His name will be doubtlessly familiar to those fans of the rap world, having began his career in hip hop, but now he's set to make waves as a songwriter, enlisting some of the greatest vocalists and performers to work with him on his first release; an impressive feat for someone who started out working in a home studio in New York before dropping out of school. Luckily, it wasn't long before his work was picked up by Proof from D-12, who introduced him to Eminem, and the rest is history. He won a Grammy after producing Eminem's album 'Recovery', went on to discover Kid Cudi and worked with some of the world's greatest rappers including Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg to name but a few.

Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear Album Review


When Father John Misty announced that his second album under that name would be both a concept album and something of an unashamed open love letter to his wife, I felt a slight twinge of uncertainty. Had Father John Misty gone off the deep end? Would this album be just too ridiculous for words? Is self-indulgence ever a good thing? On 'I Love You, Honeybear', the artist formerly known as Josh Tillman (ex-Fleet Foxes drummer) demonstrates that the answer to all three of those questions is probably a resounding 'yes', but sometimes pompous, ridiculous albums are just the best.

Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear Album Review

It begins with a title track which acts like a perfect overture for the rest of the album, as it demonstrates almost all of the sounds showcased throughout in microcosm. You get delicate acoustic guitars interplaying with gently fingered piano keys, which mutate into blustering melodrama by the conclusion; you get tasteful string arrangements that both compliment and drive the song into the stratosphere, you get Tillman's deep, soulful voice and you get amazing referential lyrics such as, 'You're bent over the altar and the neighbours are complaining that the misanthropes next door are probably conceiving a Damien'. If that isn't one of the greatest lines ever written, I don't know what is - the man has quite a way with words.

Up next is recent single 'Chateau Lobby #4 (In C for Two Virgins)', perhaps the most saccharine moment of the LP. This mariachi assisted blast of folk pop is somehow mellow and smooth while also being more upbeat than a Duracell bunny on crack. It is also somehow sickeningly sentimental while staying pretty tasteful.
