Emme | “Ugly Tears”
Emme, an electronic pop singer-songwriter and producer from Canada, is known for her emotive vocals and sincere lyrics set against driving pop beats. Her debut album, Avalanche, which was entirely self-written and self-produced, demonstrated her versatility as well as her skill in thematic songwriting and production.
