“‘Emotionally Bankrupt’ is an attempt to describe the deep feelings of depression and anxiety that so many people face today – something that is often hard to put into words. I wanted to turn something so dark into something used for beauty and used for good through the power of music. Allowing anyone and everyone to find a piece of themselves in the story of the song and realize that they are never alone in their battles.” – Emilya explained

Emilya’s goal is to spread love, empathy, and acceptance in the world through her music and for her songs to connect people.

“It’s hard when you’ve locked yourself up and your feelings left you bankrupt.”

“I grew up around music. My dad was a music lover, and he sang and played classical guitar. Sometime around early middle school, I remember sitting on the floor watching him play some scales/exercises and then asked to try. From memory, I played back what I saw him play, and he was so shocked. Pretty much immediately we went out and bought me a guitar. And I had started piano lessons in first grade and thankfully stuck with it.” Emilya explained

Emilya has been a lover of music her entire life, taking inspiration from her Jamaican father who passed away from cancer when she was 15. Being a musician himself, he encouraged her to practice and pursue her passion, and she continues to fulfill this promise to him.

“I think I’ve had a lot of experiences that other people can relate to, which will be great for my music. I’ve been through extreme emotional abuse in a relationship, sexual assault, my father passing, and the list goes on. I hope my story can connect people so no one feels alone in their struggles.” Emilya explained

‘Emotionally Bankrupt’ is just part of Emilya’s opening chapter as a musician. It’s clear that she has an exciting future ahead of her as a singer-songwriter, making her an artist to watch out for in 2021. With more new music lined up for the coming months, it’ll be exciting to hear what’s next from this hugely talented artist.
