More about Emaé
It was an awesome conversation with emaé. If you want to know more about her and see her work, you can check out all her social media pages listed below and support her music!
“That was kind of my encouragement to myself, that no matter what I'm going through, I'm never so far removed that I can't find my way back.“
“I think my ultimate goal will always be to be able to support myself fully from music.”
“The lyrics have always been very important to me, just because I feel like I have something to say, I feel like I want to express myself or express a feeling through my songs.”
“I want my music to be able to tell a story that people can relate to and it can translate into some sort of emotion when people listen to it.”
“Know what you want from the industry, number one. Number two, know who you are, and stay true to that. Because I feel like that's when the best music comes out – when you have the certainty of who you are, you're able to write from a place of truth and in a place where the music means something, it can then stand on its own.”
