Interview With Emma Claye

Hi Emma Claye! How are you?

“I’m doing well! Feeling grateful to have my health and be doing what I love.”

Tell us about your background, what has gotten you to where you are today?

“Originally from Maryland, I am an actress, singer, and songwriter based in New York City. As an actress, I have been seen in television, commercials, and theatrical productions. As a
musician, I released my first musical project, Arts & Sciences in 2014 on SoundCloud. I have released 2 singles on all streaming platforms and I am currently writing songs for other up-and-coming
artists and recording music for my next EP.”

When did you start music?

“I started singing when I was a kid but was always too scared to sing in front of people so I kept it to myself. I didn’t start performing in front of audiences until I was in college and then later picked up the guitar. Throughout my life, I would dabble with different musical instruments and would take music classes out of interest but never pursued it seriously until recently.”

What is your greatest inspiration for your music?

“I’m inspired by any and everything in life. Anything that piques my interest or that makes an interesting story. It can be things that are supermundane to things that are extraordinary. I think inspiration can be found anywhere.”

What are 3 words that describe your music?

“Genuine, timeless, and real.”

What is the hardest subject you’ve ever written about?

“I think writing about mental health issues has been tough. Especially over the last year, music was really therapeutic for me. I’m typically not a very open person so being vulnerable in that way and being able to share songs that tackle a difficult and personal topic such as mental health can be challenging.”

What are the challenges of being an artist?

“There’s so much uncertainty associated with being an artist. A lot of times you don’t know where your next job will come from, there’s a lot of financial instability, and there is a lot of investment (time, energy, money, etc.) that you have
to put in but that may or may not yield a return. There’s also a lot of rejection. That’s really tough but at the end of the day putting yourself out there and making sure that you keep going in spite of the challenges is important.”

Are you planning on releasing new music soon?

“I recently released a single entitled, I Love You on all streaming platforms! I’m currently recording and also looking to release an EP later in the year or in 2022.”
