Emiko Q & A Interview
Tiara– Tell me about growing up in West London U.K.
Emiko- Growing up in the U.K, it was good, the American r&b music scene inspired me, and as I got older, we started our own r&b scene here so I combined them both and put that into my music.
Tiara– Tell me about “Better Times” what inspired you to make that song?
Emiko- I tried to dig deep into my childhood, and the challenging moments growing up.
