Emerging Vancouver-based alt-pop/R&B artist Emma Currie is set to release her debut EP, Welcome to the Wild, on May 28th, but you can get a sneak peak and stream it exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Written and produced during quarantine, Welcome to the Wild is a mesmerizing introduction to Currie’s eclectic sound, blending her love of pop music while channeling the emotion and vulnerability encapsulated by R&B.
“I am so ecstatic that my very first EP is out now! It has been something I’ve worked on for a long time,” says Currie. “Welcome to the Wild is a collection of songs that are very close to my heart. They’re inspired by personal stories from my life and I’m so excited to finally let them free.”
Born into a musical family that includes a trained opera singer as a great grandmother, Currie’s passion for music runs through her blood. The Vancouver-based singer-songwriter began performing as a child at local showcases which eventually led to her fronting the vocals of her high school’s R&B band and working with producers Adam Stanton and Jamie Kuse on a number of original songs. Currie has since performed at various events in and around the greater Vancouver area including Canada Day 150 celebrations, Harmony Arts Festival, and the Vancouver Christmas Market and has been a featured anthem singer for Jr. hockey teams in the greater Vancouver area, the Vancouver Canadians Minor League Baseball Team, and for the SMART 2017 BA Conference at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver BC.
