Throughout history, many artists have made their music all about entertainment without paying attention to the message they ought to pass across. Although the music industry and its audience today are entertainment-driven, that is not to say there exist a chunk of music listeners who want to listen to the message, understand the story and the emotions behind every lyric. Upcoming music star Em is here to serve that demographic, “We must remember our faith and history that happened before us to provide understanding. And in that understanding, rest in a reality that unites us never separates us.” she said of her storytelling.
Em is a singer, songwriter and record producer who has been noted for her songwriting and performing prowess. Although only a few years into the game, she is gradually cementing her status in the industry. She has already earned herself the “prodigy” tag, following a series of hit and charting singles such as “Hear Your Love, and her first single, Say What You Mean”
Em has also found a worthy collaborator she considers her artistic soulmate: Gregor Stobie from Glasgow, Scotland, and in the same mid-`20s age range as Em. “We’re on the same wavelength,” Em enthuses. “We do international calls and are so connected. I can say something abstract, and he will completely understand it – I get it! It’s like he can go inside my mind, and we read each other.”
According to Em, music is a universal language that doesn’t discriminate regardless of age, gender or race. However, she admits that audiences can decide which music genre to lean towards, depending on the lyrics and message they could relate to. Therefore, judging from feedback and streaming demographics, she believes men and women aged between 18 and 45 find her songs more relatable than other demographics. And on what stands her out from her competition, she said, “My look, my songwriting capabilities and my distinct sounding voice.”
Music for Em began at the age of 12 because despite how young she was, her heart was already set on becoming a professional musician. From then on, she started songwriting and honing her musical skills. Even if she is not quite there yet, Em, in conjunction with the team around her, is on her way to stardom.
Em has her sights set on the next half a decade, still relatively new in the music game and already considered a prodigy in just a few years of being a professional music artist. On a list of things she’d like to achieve within that time frame, she said, “I see myself signing to a major label and touring the world and having my songs in movies and TV, then eventually taking acting lessons and appearing in movies.
Em is committed to her budding music career and the journey to stardom, as well as her divine calling as a product of her hard work to reach out to people globally regardless of creed, race or gender and to let them know that with hard work, dedication and perseverance they can achieve their goals.
