British/Irish singer songwriter, Empara Mí was singing from a young age but only hit our music radars back in 2016. The Guernsey born and raised artist moved to London aged just 15 to pursue music and released her first single ‘Wanderlust’ as part of a trilogy of concept pieces alongside ‘Spoon’ and ‘World we live in’. Her later release of ‘Shine on you’ would go on to be used for ITV crime drama ‘Broadchurch’. This was followed by ‘The Come down’ Which was picked up by Netflix Original ‘Dynasty’. Most recently an edited version of ‘Wanderlust’ by Kendrick Lamar’s producer, Rahki, debuted its release on the new Marvel series ‘Cloak and Dagger’.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Portishead, Gorillaz, Dr Dre, Sade, Empara Mi started writing for other artists whilst studying a History degree at University. When graduated she could then pursue a career for herself releasing her material off her own label and collaborating with the very people responsible for the music that inspires her own sound.
The DIY queen has recently collaborated with Andrew Dawson (Kanye West), James Faunteroy (Drake, Rihanna) and long term writing partner Owen Cutts with a visual Album set for release late 2018.
