Emily Asen is a singer-songwriter and aspiring producer. Fusing her classical cello background with a love for guitars, gear, and pop music, Emily writes acoustic-driven songs with richly layered, eclectic arrangements. She is known for her powerful, personal storytelling especially on the subjects of love, loss, marriage equality, and creative struggle.
For the last nine years Emily has been working as a true solo artist. She writes, performs, records, and produces her albums and releases them on her own label, Violet Maiden Records. She released her debut album Proof LP in 2008, To The Marrow in 2010, and Friends EP (Acoustic) and Friends EP in 2014.
Since 2010 Emily’s been experimenting with the “videosong” format (see examples here) and re-imagining beloved pop songs like Paul Simon’s “Kodachrome” and Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”. She has also been taking time to hone her engineering skills and indulge other passions including photography and design.
Emily lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut. When she’s not writing or producing music, Emily is admiring architecture, reading Science Fiction, or wrestling with her three rescue pups.
