Meet Emmy Meli

Today we’d like to introduce you to Emmy Meli.

Emmy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My journey began since the day I was born, I genuinely think I came out of the womb singing. I have never loved anything or anyone the way I love music; because it is the most beautiful form of silence, and it is the only time I don’t feel alone. When I was a kid, I used to lock myself in my closet with my earbuds in and just close my eyes and allow the music to take me to somewhere I’d only felt in my dreams.

Throughout my life, from childhood to high school and even after graduating, I was extremely underestimated. I was always told I’d never make it and never amount to anything, so naturally, I flipped the script. Everything I’ve ever gone through, all the pain I’ve ever felt has amounted to the music I make today. I like to think of my experiences as content because if you can make something beautiful out of something painful you must be doing something right. I want other kids to know that no matter who you are or where you come from or what you were told, you can accomplish anything your soul desires.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Pursuing music is NOT a smooth road, rest assured. Although overcoming these obstacles is difficult, I wouldn’t want to do anything else because this is what I love. When you love what you do nothing ever feels like work! The biggest roadblocks I’ve had to learn to deal with would definitely be reliance, resilience, and self-doubt. Reliance is important because you have to learn that you can’t ever rely on anyone else to make YOUR dreams come true. Take control of your own destiny and GET IT DONE!! Resilience is KEY because if you get screwed over, have falling outs with producers/ other artists/ or even just life issues, you need to learn to push through and get right back up on your feet. Last but not least, self-doubt. No room for it. It’s as simple as that. Put in what you want out.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
As a growing musician, I’d say I’m proud of myself for being unique in my style. I love pop as much as the next girl, but I hope to bring old styles of music into the current scene. My music is a mixture of Motown, 60’s tunes, jazz, R&B, and pop all in one.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, the only thing I would’ve done differently is start way earlier. I wish I would’ve had the work ethic and confidence that I do now at seventeen. I definitely think I’d be way ahead of where I am now. But then again, what’s meant to be will be so I try not to stress.
