FRESH: ‘Siren’ – EMIAH feat. Panuma and Tokyo Project

EMIAH hooks up with Panuma and Tokyo Project for “Siren”.

by Christopher Smith

After it’s release two months ago, “Siren” debuted at No.1 on Submit Hub’s Pop Chart (Worldwide), featuring on over 2,000 playlists including official placements by Spotify, Apple Music, Sony, Universal Music, Tidal and Deezer. As well as gaining over half a million streams, “Siren” also received major radio play in the UK, Europe, U.S and South America. “Siren (The Remixes)” features fresh new remixes from Kaan Pars, KPLR, Nalestar and Marc Brothers.

“Siren” is a song inspired by the greek mythological creatures sirens who would lure sailors to shipwreck. The song is about being trapped in a relationship in which you have no control over your feelings. The song’s atmospheric production mixed with vivid lyrical imagery and strong melodic hooks throughout will leave the listener with the song stuck in their head! EMIAH’s latest single (along with Panuma and Tokyo Project) comes after a busy year for the rising female artist with appearances at Party At The Palace, XpoNorth & Belladrum (alongside Lewis Capaldi, Jess Glynne and Chvrches) as well as support slots with BeCharlotte (Sony), Wrabel (Pink, RCA) and The Hoosiers (RCA).

Scottish Pop/R&B vocalist and songwriter EMIAH has recently teamed up with fellow Scottish songwriter and producer Stuart McInnes (known professionally as Esdaile State) to create a powerhouse duo who have been working together on worldwide collaborations including their November 2018 release with Nexeri & ConKi, “Adios Amigo” which received over 700,000 streams and broke into iTunes charts across Europe. 2018 saw the rise of EMIAH’s online presence when she smashed out a 10 part Music Mondays series on YouTube at the beginning of the year. The summer saw her play festivals attended by over 25,000 people, sharing the bill with music legends such as Gabrielle, James and Texas. She then co-wrote and featured on a charity album released to help raise funds for the SSPCA, supported X-factor/The Voice finalist Saara Aalto (Warner Music) and finished the year off with a Christmas Tour of Scotland.

Not an artist to stay in one lane musically, EMIAH has worked in a wide range of genres including House, EDM, R’n’B and Hip Hop. Being a huge fan of classic 90’s R&B music and growing up with influences such as Whitney Houston, Usher and Destiny’s Child, EMIAH uses these classic sounds and infuses them with a fresh modern day spin which mirrors the likes of Kehlani, Khalid and Zara Larsson. 2019 was a busy year with three single releases and three remix packages, “Fall In Love” (with Nexeri) and “Lovin’ Me” (with Edward Skera) along with “Siren” (with Panuma and Tokyo Project), all of which featured on major playlists by Spotify, Sony, Tidal, Ministry Of Sound, Deezer and Apple Music as well as receiving radio airplay across the UK, Europe and U.S. EMIAH then went on to support BeCharlotte (Sony), The Hoosiers (RCA), Rothwell and Wrabel (RCA, Pink), in which Pink herself made an appearance at. This year also saw her performing a showcase at prestigious music industry event XpoNorth and a slot at this year’s Belladrum Festival alongside acts such as Jess Glynne, Lewis Capaldi and Chvrches. With incredible new remixes to “Siren”, EMIAH is ending the year on a high and is definitely one to watch!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
