Tommy Emmanuel


Those Who Wait
8 May 2020

At one point in my career, I had management and the record company people pressuring me to not go solo. All my instincts were telling me that’s exactly what I must do. After some confrontations, I made the decision to break free of contracts, records companies, and management. I knew my destiny lie in being a solo player and composer. I was told that I was crazy thinking that people would want to hear solo acoustic guitar. They said there’s no market for that kind of music. I answered, “I’ll create one.” After standing my ground, I felt empowered to throw myself completely into a solo career. Once I made up my mind, nothing could stop this song coming out of me. It’s a statement of finding the courage to be yourself when all around you want you to be something else.
