‘Home’ is the new single from Australian singer-songwriter Eliott.
Charlotte Gemmill, better known as Eliott, has managed to earn herself a solid reputation for her ability to tell her story in a way that makes the listener feel it for themselves in just a few short years.
Hailing from the small Victorian town of Cobram, the 23-year old captured the attention and scored support slots from the likes Paul Kelly, Matt Corby and Dean Lewis, as well as lending her skills to the Kite String Tangle’s ‘Killing Time’ and Lucian Blomkamp’s ‘Doing This For You’.
In her own right, she’s released a string of singles including ‘Circles’, ‘Shaking My Hips’ and ‘Find A Way’ as well as a debut EP Bold Enough amassing over 10 million streams globally with additions across numerous global playlists. Now she’s back with her new single ‘Home’, an achingly beautiful and emotive track was written in the wake of Eliott returning to Australia after months of touring and writing sessions around the world.
Co-written with Chris Collins (Azure Ryder, Skegss, Tyne James Organ), the song reflects on longing for home. How it feels to reunite with your family and how reconnecting often grounds you, bringing you back to earth after an extended period away.
To celebrate the release, Eliott has shared her favourite spots to go back home in Cobram.
The Murray River
I pretty much grew up on the river. Every summer that’s where we would be 95 per cent of the time. Skiing, wakeboarding with all of our friends. It’s still where I’ll be most weekends now!
Orchard behind my house
I spent a lot of time on the roof of this shed watching countless sunsets with friends, or by myself. It’s probably my favourite spot at night to sit and think.
A beautiful lookout right near my home.
My parent’s house I grew up in (and the piano I learnt on)
I had lived in my parent’s house my whole life. This is actually where we shot the video for “home”. It’s beautiful and filled with the most amazing memories.
I spent a lot of my Younger years here camping with family and friends.
My Mother’s Garden
Alot of my mum’s garden reminds me of my Nanna Yvonne. She owned the Cobram Florist for the most part of my life, and I just remember driving around the town in her Flower Van thinking I was the coolest kid around. She was a huge part of our lives, and my passion for flowers, nature fresh air, definitely comes from her. Sadly she passed away over a year ago now – but the same flowers grow in our garden and remind us of her.
