Indulging
a rare breed of rock n’ roll of the biggest kind, Emiko lives up to the
rock legends as a trailblazer who sings, plays keys, takes her own
solos, and is unafraid to say what others only dare to think. Having
played piano since she was two and half, Emiko has transformed from
classical piano prodigy to rock and roll starlet.



A three time
featured performer of the Songwriters Hall of Fame New Writers
Showcases, Emiko has graced the pages of Billboard Magazine, FM Sound,
Music Connection, and other mainstream music publications. As a
songwriter, Emiko has writing and production credits under her belt for
SONY/ATV, V2, and song placements both nationally and internationally
on MTV, VH1, CBS, E!, HGTV, A&E (and more) which have established
the Emiko brand as a global entity. After the critical success of her
debut album, “Here Lies Tinkerbell,” the Fall and Winter of 2008 have
seen Emiko return to the studio to begin work on her sophomore release
with producers Patrick Shaw (Shakira, Alicia Keys, Mandy Moore) and 12
time platinum selling, Grammy nominated Tommy Faragher (the Bee Gees,
Taylor Dayne).  Emiko’s 2009 World Tour, to include dates in the US,
China, Japan, England, and Germany, will be highlighted by a
performance at the 2009 Special Olympic Winter Games in Boise, ID, this
February.



Emiko’s several award wins (including the 2005
Overplay Song Competition Award) and nominations,
coupled with her incredible chart success in the UK (#1 for a record
setting 17 weeks on the Overplay Pop/Rock charts) and Japan (#3 and #7
on the YouMusic Pop Charts) has led to the fast and furious growth of
her fanbase. Her participation in World Hunger Year's “Artists Against
Hunger and Poverty” Campaign as the only unsigned artist on the tour,
and her performances with Jackson Browne at the Steel Bridge Song
Festival in Wisconsin over the last two years have secured Emiko’s
presence on the national level. “City Sessions,” a show which features
interviews and performances from Emiko, is now airing on PBS, RAVE, and
will be on FUSE in the coming months.



The world around Emiko
is also starting to take notice of her savvy business mind. In July of
2008, Emiko was featured in Young Working Woman as one of New York’s
most successful entrepreneurial women in business. Emiko is the
president and founder of The 6412 Ltd., a boutique entertainment
company that represents up-and-coming singer/songwriters. Additionally,
she is the founder and director of the Asian American Music Industry
Association - an organization that is dedicated to bridging the gap
between Asia and the Western World in today’s popular music industry.



Currently,
Emiko makes her home in New York City with her band, the GeminiStation
Project.  Hard at work in the studio on her next album, it can surely
be said that Emiko is one step closer to her favorite saying, “If
there’s life on Mars, they’ll buy my album!”
