Bio

Emmi is the Perth raised songstress you need to know.

Working as a songwriter for other artists worldwide for many years, Emmi didn't step into the light under her own name until a couple years ago, when she uploaded her (ironically titled) debut 'My Kinda Swag' to Soundcloud. The Guardian (UK) called it 'one of the highlights of 2015'. Presenter Greg James at BBC Radio 1 gave the track it's first national radio play weeks later having found it online and the station soon named the tune their 'BBC Introducing Track of the Week'. Back in Oz, Triple J Unearthed and Triple J showed the song some loving too, with spot plays from regional and national radio across the country.

Emmi's second single 'Sleep On It' won a fan in none other than TAYLOR SWIFT who tweeted about the song in a list of "new songs that will make your life more awesome". Sure she spelt her name wrong (like the award), but it was a gift to top all gifts and the world took note.

Emmi then lent her songwriting and vocal chops to two features in Europe, both of which have clocked up over 36 million Spotify streams and have put a shiny double platinum plaque on her bedroom wall. (Feder feat Emmi 'Blind' / Sonny Alven feat Emmi 'Our Youth') She was on a roll...

With the UK, Europe and the US bubbling away nicely, Emmi took some time to return home to Oz as one of the nominees for MTV Brand New 2016 (Aus/NZ)...eventually taking the crown as winner by popular vote. In case world domination wasn't enough, Emmi's other worldly voice then earned her a surprise ticket to quite literally the other world... when she was cast a jazz singing goblin girl in JK Rowling's latest offering 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'.

It was at this point, Emmi decided to take some time out to "find a team and make a plan as big and brave as the ideas in my head". Noe, over a year later she has broken her silence to announce her return with not 1, not 2, but 3 new albums! (A trilogy: Lovers. Players. Dreamers.) Each playlist is said to have it's own unique concept, musical style and visual world and Emmi has promised to release them one by one over the course of 2018/2019.

First up is pop playlist 'LOVERS'. A concept story album, filled with soulful crunchy pop tunes, 'Lovers' narrates a single relationship from start to finish. Emmi is releasing the playlist chapter by chapter, every fortnight till December.

Chapters:

Chapter 1: 'Moments' - The night the lovers meet (Sept 21st)
Chapter 2- 'Label On It' - 3 months in (Oct 5th)
Chapter 3 - 'Scared Stupid' - 1 year in (Oct 19th)
Chapter 4 - 'The Way We Used To' - 2 years in (Nov 2nd)
Chapter 5 - 'Won't Do Love That Way' - 3 years in (Nov 16th)
Chapter 6 - 'Stay Awake' (Nov 30th)

Expect announcements of albums 2 and 3 in the new year!

Voice is killer, production and performance likewise. I'm held back only by the lyrics otherwise I'd be deep in this.

Listened to this song when my coffee order got messed up, this was my moment and this song came on. That's when I knew I could stand up for what is right and tell them I ordered a dbl shot cap not a turmeric chai soy latte. Inspiring sounds
