ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY
Songwriting is breathing to Emi. Born in Kyoto, Japan, Emi Meyer moved to Seattle, Washington before the age of one. Growing up between cultures, she thinks and feels unconventionally. It only fits that she would create her own expression. Emi's music spans borders and channels an old soul gained from clearing her own place.

BEGINNINGS
Emi’s musical career began with piano lessons at the age of six. She showed great potential and expanded to jazz to collaborate. Jazz’s spontaneous jams, its synchronization between fingers and voice, and the search for genuine words enticed her to sing her own.

RESUME
Emi’s song "Sunrise" premiered in Michael Kang’s West 32nd at the Tribeca Film Festival, and she received first place in the 2007 Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Competition. She performs at premiere venues including The Hotel Café, Tangier, and Room 5 (Hollywood), and the Experience Music Project, Seattle Art Museum, and Dimitrio’s Jazz Alley (Seattle). She is internationally showcased at the Northwest Folklife Festival, Kahoutek Music Festival, and Japan’s Kobe Jazz Festival. The range of venues attests to her unique blend of folk-rock, jazz, and pop. She gives jazz a modern twist, crafting songs with lyrical depth and catchy melodies. Magnolias and Live @ The Hotel Café are broadcasted on radio stations around Seattle, Los Angeles, and on KGRL.fm alongside Ani DiFranco and India Arie. Throughout the process, Emi has learned about herself—an insight that materializes in writing, a joy in connection, and an honesty on stage. Emi is excited with the direction of her latest release, Curious Creature.

P.S.
But really, Emi is just another college kid. She studies Ethnomusicology in California, has a hankering for brownie sundaes, and likes to dirt bike and make things.

My daughter, who is studying abroad in Kyoto, met Emi, told me how wonderful she is, and sent me to CD Baby to hear her new album. I immediately bought it and have been playing it on my computer, my iPod, and in the car, and am telling everyone to check it out. I am headed to Kyoto next week, and hope I will be able to hear her perform in person!

Emi has been a participant in Centrum's Jazz Port Townsend workshop for several years and played our Gala this past November, which is our primary fundraiser for scholarships. I was impressed by her talent and grace - and immediately went to order her CD, even though I could have had a comp since I work at Centrum. Supporting the artists, that's what it's about! Love the CD! Great vocals ...
Thanks, Emi!

Emi's CD is getting worn out - I love her music and she is very talented. I would highly recommend this album. Every song is beautifully done. "Dear John" is my favorite. Joe Diehl, Seattle, WA
