Emily Blue is a rare flavor of pop. Provocative, dynamic, and constantly evolving, the Chicago artist draws from a wide range of influences (hair metal, glitch pop, industrial sound design). Emily Blue’s last EP *69 was described by PopMatters as “patriarchy-blasting, feminism-championing tunes that are also unapologetically fun,” a shift that made room for her glitchy, catchy summer single Bad Decisions (2019).
In 2020, Blue takes her vocal power to the next level. Her upcoming dual-single “17 / Heartland” emulates icons like Heart combined with the sultry, melancholy flavors of artists like Lana Del Rey. With bigger and bolder live performances under her belt from this summer’s #CallMeBack tour, Blue promises to be a trailblazer in an often commercial and homogenous genre.
On November 8, 2019, Blue won first place in Chicago Reader’s year-end Best Pop Artist award.
Blue resides in Chicago, Illinois. She is a member of the LGBT community and an avid supporter of LGBT rights and pro-LGBT organizations.
