S R Mortimer Black Chapel
S.R. MORTIMER
 
S.R.Mortimer, is a solo project by Steve Mortimer aka Black Chapel. Having worked as a remixer and producer as Black Chapel, and then more recently, with the highly successful Connect Film and Performance, Steve pics up the mic this time with thoughtful, moody, and beautiful songs chronicling his experience with Mental Health.
 

Heavily inspired by battles and triumphs with depression and anxiety S.R.Mortimer songs explore these themes with a rare vulnerability and nakedness that all of us can relate to.
Using his experience as a producer and songwriter S.R.Mortimer’s vocal’s sit between empty, soundscape and ambient textures to blissful chill out grooves of a gospel nature.
Shipwrecked is the first single which is available to order here https://bandcamp.com/srmortimer and will be available 10/3/23 on all digital platforms. 

The second single is Guiding Stars, this is a lovely, soulful gospel track , with its Hammond organ and angelic backing vocals by Rachel Brooks and Daniela Rhodes . The single will be released 31st March 2023 ,with all Bandcamp proceeds going to Nordoff Robbins.

There are plans for a live show later in the year (more details to be revealed soon).Black Chapel is Electronic Producer and remixer, STEVE MORTIMER. From his base in Chelmsford, BLACK CHAPEL weaves a love of deep grooves with melancholy harmonies and intricate atmospheres, influenced from a wide range of genres. 

 

BLACK CHAPEL COLLECTIVE

For the past 2 years, as BLACK CHAPEL COLLECTIVE, Steve has been  working with a group of talented and like-minded Artists/Musicians to address the single most important issue that faces our world today, that of Climate Change. His passion for the issue has led to the creation of a multimedia project, “CONNECT” and working with other musicians and artists through the Pandemic, this became firstly a Film and then a Live show. The film has become an International sensation winning over 40 awards so far and leading to Steve being interviewed Live on SKY NEWS earlier in 2021. The Live show in September 2021 was a triumph with all the Artists coming together for the first time on one stage to perform the show.

 
So far 4 singles have been released from the project, the most recent being The Secret featuring Daniela Rhodes on vocals, released on Earth Day 2022 in conjunction with Brian Eno’s Earth Percent. The Secret was featured on Earth Percent’s Bandcamp page alongside Artists such as Peter Gabriel, Coldplay and Anna Calvi.
 
You can see the film “CONNECT” here

special projects

Here are some special projects that Emjaymedia has been involved with.

Green City took place again this year in Chelmsford.
A week of activities taking place throughout the City centre aimed at raising the profile of Green issues, and encouraging everyone to think about the subject and how they might get involved and think green in their daily lives.
As supporters of the Green Agenda and having produced the “Connect” project last year which specifically addressed Climate Change, Steve Mortimer and myself were honoured and excited to curate the first Music Stage at Green City.
