She originally moved to Los Angeles from the Midwest in pursuit of sharing her music, and since then, has worked alongside some of the music industry's most talented producers and writers. EMILA is most notably known as an artist that dances the fine line between two genres: dark pop and R&B. 'Moody', her debut EP released July 2018, established the young artist and set the stage for her dark sound.

EMILA also released "Sunshine" and "Warrior", which introduce uplifting and anthem-like sounds to her crowd base, contradictory to her previous introspective and moody work.

EMILA is continuing to expand into new styles and is currently performing acoustic renditions of her work across venues in Southern California.
