My name is Emmi. Short for Emily. Long for Em.
I make music, tell stories and wander the planet. For some time now I have been doing so rather secretly. But in the summer of last year, my debut single ‘My Kinda Swag’ was set free, and that all changed. Perhaps that’s why you’re here now. Welcome!
A little about me; my childhood was a well travelled one. First world, third world, my own world; I saw a lot of things in that time I will never forget and learned that change is the only sure thing in this life…
I’m none the wiser. I do music because I believe it connects us and helps us feel a little less alone. I try to paint a picture of life as we know it, warts and all, and turn that into something beautiful – because it is, anyway. And we are, anyway.
I grew up on classical music, the jazz greats and Shirley Temple movies and my brother’s Tupac CD’s. I have a deep appreciation for the art of the spoken word and I’m also a sucker for gospel spirituals, world music and masterful harmonies.
In my life to date I have lived and worked as a dancer, actress, songwriter and more recently an artist, but the underlying passion has always been the same: to tell a good story. Our stories.
I can’t wait to share more music with you. Thanks for stopping by!
