Ryan O’Neal, better known as his musical name Sleeping At Last, recorded a 36-song project entitled Yearbook from October 2010 through September 2011. Each month, he released a three song EP to make a time capsule of what happened in his life during that time.
“Emphasis” is a mellow song from that project that highlights O’Neal’s multi-instrumental skills. The track’s soft, soothing piano melody drives mixes with atmospheric strings and the strength of O’Neal’s vocal prowess. The effortlessness of the “Emphasis” is matched by a video that features him seated at a piano and a toddler playing with a puzzle.
