Emi Meyer

Jazz pop performer Emi Meyer hosted the release for her newest single, Galaxy’s Skirt, at O’Asian in Seattle on Friday, Nov. 30, playing to a sold-out crowd. The single was released on iTunes on Nov. 28.

Meyer, born in Kyoto, Japan to an American father and Japanese mother, grew up in Seattle and began studying classical piano at the age of 6, eventually branching into jazz.

In 2007, she won the Seattle–Kobe Jazz Vocalist Competition, hosted jointly by sister cities Seattle and Kobe. Her win led to Japanese exposure and helped her develop a following. She has released three feature albums, performed at Sundance Film Festival, and has topped the Japanese Jazz charts. (end)
