Emanuel Harrold is a St. Louis native with music in his veins. The grandson of a gospel recording artist and a drum and bugle corps leader, Harrold creates his own music while also teaching, producing and composing. The jazz/soul artist has won two Grammys for his work with Gregory Porter and has played over 2,000 shows at acclaimed venues such as, Buckingham Palace, the Sydney Opera House, Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno, Tavis Smiley, the North Sea Jazz Festival and the Berlin Philharmonic. His latest single, “Luv Hurt” is an inspirational soul track about love overcoming hardships written by Harrold and featuring Chris Turner on vocals.
“The inspiration in writing ‘Luv Hurt’ came about as I was thinking on who I was as person, what I enjoy and how did my upbringing influence me to this point. Being true, embracing what’s in front of me and giving my all has allowed me remain humble,” says Harrold. “Yet all things, situations and deals will not go your way. I say, ‘stay strong.’ Do it for the luv. Recalibrate and try again. I started writing words and eventually those thoughts became a song.“
