Song of the Day: Is It Real – Emiko

West London singer and songwriter EMIKO rocks up on today hotspot with his single titled ‘Is It Real’. Highly recommended if you like Daniel Ceasar, Ray BLK, and DVSN, and with a velvety smooth, beautiful and piercing voice, an infectious artistic personality, and undeniable storytelling and songwriting ability, this 22-year old is the fast-rising new UK R&B power voice you will fall in love with this year.

Taken from EMIKO’s forthcoming debut EP to be released in the autumn, ‘It Is Real’ – produced by South London musician Hilts and his frequent Turtle Basement collaborator Monks – is a smooth Jazz-esque R&B opus, backed by lush piano arrangements and exquisite horns, over which EMIKO’s glorious vocal dexterity comes to the forefront, as he sings about finding freedom in love.

Heavily influenced by great artists such as Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, and Erykah Badu, EMIKO possesses a glorious voice that is nurtured in his distinct blend of R&B and Soul music, as well as an infectious energy and character that shine through in his songs. The Notting Hill native expresses his musical hopes and ambitions in one simple statement, “bringing people together, from far and wide, to experience something so special that words alone can never truly encapsulate the feeling”.
