Q: Please introduce yourself to the readers and how you first got into this field of work –and who were some of your influences growing up?
My name is Emerald Bennett, but my stage name is Emmy’Anna. I got the name by combining my nickname “Emmy” with my middle name Georgie’Anna. I have been doing music literally since I could talk. I always loved to sing, I started writing songs around 8 years old and then I started rapping when I was about 13 years old. Some of my very first influences were Beyonce, Destiny’s Child, Ashanti, and TLC. On the rap side of things, I would say, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne. Lol “The Big 3”. I love all types of music though, I love “The All American Rejects, Avril Lavigne Green Day, and flyleaf. Some of my most recent inspiration has come from 93Spunx, xxxtentacion, and NightLovell.
Q: What kind of training have you had, if any?
I never had any training. I am self-taught. Completely raw talent. When I was younger my parents did sign me up for piano lessons but I never finished taking the lessons.
