A glimpse into my hectic, existential, late-night brain
Emei is an alt-pop singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles. Her clear-cut lyrics and cheeky tone guarantee listeners to press replay.
“Regrets” the single “was inspired by one of my nighttime journal entries consisting of a brain dump of every single stupid regret I’ve had. It starts with a light-hearted sarcastic list and it devolves into all the things that I shouldn’t have done and the things I wish I could change. Though at first a slow ballad, it eventually hits a peak paralleling my frustration with myself. This single is the last single leading up to my debut EP and a glimpse into my hectic, existential, late-night brain.” confides the songwriter.
But even before she started writing, Emei developed an incredible stage presence from her experience competing on Chinese Idol at 15. After receiving a third place on the show through months of stadium shows, Emei began releasing her own music on Chinese platforms and eventually performing on Dancing with the Stars of China.
When Covid hit, Emei started releasing new music on American platforms, gaining media coverage on Earmilk, Ones to Watch, Early Rising, and Lyrical Lemonade. Emei’s single, “Late to the Party”, hit 5.2M streams after videos of her performing the song live hit a collective 9.5M views on Tiktok and Instagram Reels.
Emei has been featured on the cover of Salt and Fresh Finds Pop. Her music has been playlisted on New Music Friday, Big on the Internet, Pop Sauce, Young & Free and more. She’s currently gearing up for her debut EP coming October 26th.
