Today we’d like to introduce you to Emani Johnson.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Emani. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I am a 19-year-old artist. All my life, art, and self-expression has been everything to me. So, ever since I was younger, I was always finding ways every day to share my thoughts and visions or just anyway to make them tangible somehow. I love making music and with my music, I write about things I go through and things I feel. I want to show people that and I want them to feel from it as well. I want to inspire my listeners in ways they’ve never felt before. I want to show people how I see things – how I hear them. I put my passion in my writing and my music and it’s all important to me, from every beat down to every last hum.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Some of the struggles I’ve faced were all just based around finding myself and learning how to control my head. I got lost in love and allowed myself to lose sight of me, but with the things I’ve gone through, I found out so much about myself and the life I have around me. It’s changed me and I’m grateful for it every day. I use that time period to help me help others and it’s inspired a lot of my art.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Emani 22 – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
For me, I feel like nothing can compare because I’m my own person. Everything I put out is very personal, so yes, it can be understood, but it can never be duplicated. I just want to continue to make art and spread the love.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Everything right now is all just about spreading my words. I want to keep making music. I have my first EP on the way, so that’s exciting. I have a lot of ideas as far as songs that I will be putting out, so it’ll be cool to see how people react to them.
