Emilee Emiko ⫸ ⫸ ⫸ ⫸ ⫸ ⫸ ⫸
Emilee Emiko is a multidisciplinary artist who grew up on an alpaca farm nestled between Portland and the Oregon coastal mountains. As an artist, both curious and introverted, she’s never taken a straight path. She attended art school for painting and photography, worked as a journalist, a video editor, and eventually found her way into the music industry. She traveled across two continents chasing love and the answers to life’s existential questions. All the while, music has been her muse and her fuel. Emiko’s debut EP is an accumulation of love and longing, past and future, a lot of uncertainty, and the awareness of always looking for something more. She currently resides in Los Angeles, where she works for Light in the Attic Records and continues to follow her zig-zagging path of creative expression.
Emilee Emiko EP
Perpetual Doom proudly presents the debut EP from Emilee Emiko. Written and recorded between Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles, these five songs offer a warm invitation into the world of this evocative singer-songwriter. Alongside collaborator Graeme Gibson, Emiko draws on a rich palette of folk, soul, and rock to craft wry and indelible material. From the bittersweet nostalgia of “Looking” to the toe-tapping groove on “Quiet,” each track projects confidence and vision. The record also features the contributions of a wide range of friends and collaborators, including Michael Nau, Lauren Jacobson (The Lumineers), Ron Lewis (The Shins, Fruit Bats), and Dan Schneider (The Singleman Affair). Lush, memorable, and full of light, this debut ensures Emilee Emiko will be a voice heard for years to come.
