ÊMIA is the indie-pop project of Brooklyn-based Vietnamese-American singer/songwriter and producer, Anh Le. The Deli Magazine’s writes. “she offers listeners a pure and potent brand of pop that gets the heart fluttering.”
Posting videos of covers and original songs recorded in her living on her Youtube channel since she was 13, Le is no stranger to making homemade resonate with a worldwide audience.
Struggling with her own path as a writer/artist during her time college (she attended University of Miami’s Frost School of Music on full scholarship), she turned her attention towards toplining for up-and-coming DJs and producers. With the organic success of “How To Say Sorry” with Middle School, - her first independent release that has now garnered over 4 million streams - she has become a sought-after collaborator. She is known for her earnest vocal performance, as well as her infectious, empowering, memorable lyrics/melodies. She has released under tastemakers labels such as ALT:Vision (of Republic Records), Majestic Casual and Monstercat Records.
In July 2019, Le released her self-written and self-produced debut EP, Little Secret, independently. “If You Can’t Take the Rain” and “Psychic” from Little Secret has been featured on Spotify’s editorial playlist: Pop Right Now, Fresh Finds, and Fresh Finds Poptronix. She has also been been featured on Spotify’s Fresh Pop, and Chill Mode: Now.
As a live performer, she has been invited as an artist for one of iHeart Radio’s Acoustic live sessions and headlined the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. Diandra Reviews It All writes, “ÊMIA has range and control; tossing her chords like whips hitting canned notes. The result was a show that made you hope the world sees her for the diamond she is.”
She is currently working on her first full length album and prepping for a summer tour in 2020.
