Today, Tucson-via-Los Angeles singer-songwriter Emmy Wildwood shares her new EP Pageant, produced by Zach Jones at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. The four-track set
After nearly two decades as a songwriter/musician in various projects, Wildwood committed to learning ProTools and how to self-produce this past year after convincing herself she couldn’t do it following years of sexism and mistreatment in the studio by men. [Per a 2019 USC study, there’s a gender gap of 47:1 among today’s top producers, 47 males to every one female]. The process allowed Wildwood to take back her power and take control of her destiny. This year, she will release two EPs and one album, Heavy Petals.
Pageant follows the release of new singles "Big John" and "Chapel" earlier this month. Her previous EP, All My Blood, arrived in January, and earned support from Galore, Papermag, BUST Magazine, NYLON, Uproxx, The Line Of Best Fit, The 405, and more.
Wilwood's solo career began in 2013, after she dropped the final album with her former punk band VELTA, which included a collaboration with TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone (“Let’s Get Married”). Her debut solo effort, Mean Love, earned co-signs from Ryan Seacrest and Patricia Fields, and features in Billboard, Refinery29, Huffington Post, NewNowNext, and more. Following the release, Wildwood dropped singles “Scream,” written exclusively for FOX's “Scream Queens” soundtrack, and "Breathe Me / Lean On," an artful mash-up of Sia’s “Breathe Me” and Major Lazer’s “Lean On."
