Emiko To Have Special Performance at CMJ
As a citizen of the world, Emiko's music reflects her international heritage - half Japanese, half Jewish-American - as she brings to life her journeys through music. Whether it's through the pulsing march of a lone drum on her son "The Great North Road" or the romantic nostalgia of "6am" (both from her upcoming album to be distributed through Universal Music Group), Emiko finds herself crossing musical genres as often as she crosses international borders these days.
Having taken the last year off to focus on writing her new album, Emiko has found herself knee deep in the development of a TV show about her life and her travels, which, according to the shows producers "had to be made because no one would believe this story if we told them!" The series will chronicle the making of her new live stage show and album which tells the story of how after 15 years, Emiko left New York for a 10 day tour of Japan, met an Englishman in a bar, and after a whirlwind romance, marrying and having a baby, she found herself in London.
The story does not end there. Adding the domestic mommy experience to her lifestyle has found its way into her new music. When Emiko is not busy writing, recording, or touring, she delves into her other passion: the business side of the music industry. As president and founder of The 6412 Ltd., a business development/management consulting firm for up and coming artists, and Executive Director of AAMIA (The Asian American Music Industry Association), Emiko has been invited to lecture and participate as a music industry expert at various music festivals, panels, and conferences such as Japan Music Week, The Independent Music Conference, and more.
CMJ registrations and show passes are both valid for free admission. Half the club capacity will be reserved for CMJ attendees.
