“Five Minutes With” Singer, Songwriter and Producer Emme

Electronic/pop singer-songwriter and producer, Emily Dakin – better known as Emme – is an Edmonton-based artist, known for her touch of soft vocals, gritty synths, and genuine lyrics over driving pop beats. With notable releases such as the “Earthquake” EP and her newest single, “Downhill”, Emme collides the worlds of intense driving production and brutally honest songwriting, setting her apart from other songwriters and producers. Now, with the release of her debut album, “Avalanche,” Emme continues the narrative she began with the Earthquake EP. Her biggest project yet, a two-part album including all the acoustics versions of the original Earthquake songs, as well as eight new tracks that continue the natural disaster theme, “Avalanche” not only showcases Emme’s versatility, but also her capacity for thematic songwriting and production. Whether sipping a latte in the sun, enjoying the company of friends and family, yelling out your troubles in your car, or crying alone in your room, Avalanche explores every detail of life’s biggest obstacle – being human.
