INFO > Emma Townshend is the oldest daughter of legendary guitarist Pete Townshend and Karen Astley, the daughter of composer Edwin Astley (Ted’s other children are producer Jon Astley and singer Virginia Astley). Given that impressive musical lineage, it seemed inevitable that Emma would have a go in the studio. “Five-A-Side Football” is the second of two singles taken from Emma’s album, “Winterland.” The original tune is a soft, piano driven piece similar to the work of Tori Amos; Blue Amazon convert the track into a progressive house experience.
Emma now teaches courses at Oxford; is a regular contributor to The Independent on Sunday and The Times; and wrote Darwin’s Dogs, detailing Charles Darwin’s study of canine cohorts in demonstrating his theory of evolution.
