Emi Jeen

Story

Montreal-based singer-songwriter Emi Jeen burst into the alt-pop scene as a solo artist in late 2015, telling evocative stories – at once hopeful and nostalgic; wistful and urgent; raw and graceful. Noted on stage for her theatrical energy and outspoken talent as a performer, it is also the exuberance of her dark pop style and aesthetic that leaves no one indifferent!

In 2020, inspired by many heartbreaking experiences in the music industry and various traumas, Emi Jeen drew international attention with her debut EP as an indie artist, The Other Side, a powerful pop-alternative manifesto featuring the hit songs, “Holy Water” and “Other Side.” If her music is in line with a therapeutic logic of exteriorization of her emotions, she does not hide her diversified musical influences which gravitate between the great female voices of the industry, rock-metal, and pop of the 90s and 2000s.

The emerging artist borrows the basis of her musical register from opera, which gives her a unique vocal dexterity, more surprising and spontaneous in live shows, and an unparalleled stage presence that she has developed over the years while performing in front of adoring crowds in Dubai, Morocco, Thailand, and Malaysia with the all-female band, A.K.A.

Emi Jeen reveals herself with confidence that is embodied in the recent release of the first track from her new project, Dark Lonely Summer, and the song, “One Million Perfume.” To begin a brand new chapter, and without hiding her international aims, the next EP entitled Why So Serious, to be released by the end of Summer 2022, promises a pop-rock 90s inspired production, powerful voices, and vulnerability.
