The best kept secret in music

Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Emalya was adopted from South Korea when they were 4 months old. Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri, they aren't able to say they knew they wanted to write music and sing at the age of 2 (come on.. psh.. please), but they lived a normal childhood full of drawing and playing in the dirt.

Of course, they had your typical piano, violin, guitar, bass, drums (blah blah blah) lessons, but it wasn't until they were 14 that they realized they wanted to create music. It became a passion. A band had come out at the time named Hanson. Seeing kids their age having fun making music really inspired them.

In 2001, they performed at the Hanson Fanfest in Tulsa, Oklahoma with other acts such as Jessica Harp (now a part of the duo, The Wreckers, with Michelle Branch) and Blue Background.

Since then, not much has happened. Emalya continues to write music, but their priorities lie in their education at Berklee College of Music. Wishing music could be their first priority, Emalya is content with having music as a hobby.

Over the summer of 2004, they recorded a 4 song demo and is currently considering releasing an independent CD later in the year or whenever they can make time. It'll be fun. Stick around.
