emaé is an independent Scottish singer-songwriter, supported by BBC Introducing, MTV The Wrap Up, MOBO awards and AFROPUNK.
Documenting self discovery in her soulful sound, emaé has been playlisted by Spotify in Indonesia, Japan and her music has reached over 55 countries independently, being praised by tastemakers for forging ‘her own lane in today’s British music landscape.’
Pegged as One To Watch by the MOBOs and moving away from the acoustic sound, emaé released her debut album, Old Heart, in 2018. Executively produced by emaé alongside musical director and bassist Oroh Angiama (Corrine Bailey Rae, Tom Jones, Warner, Atlantic Records), Old Heart is an exciting mix of her honest, life-weathered songwriting and roaming melodies fleshed out by full studio production.
emaé was one of The h. Club’s Emerging Music Creatives for 2018/19 and is now excited to be writing again for her next project.
