ABOUT

Hey, my name's Riina, though I sometimes go by EmiLily, or Emmerlee, or Emberlee...something like that. I have a four-octave voice range (well, almost), from bass to mezzo-soprano. I'll sing pretty much everything, as well as harmonies. I also write songs myself (lyrics & music) and in a pretty large range, which I'll expand on in the influences section. All I can say is that an acoustic folk tune can catch my attention just as much as a huge four-on-the-floor dance anthem. :) I also play piano (rhythm piano :-P ), clarinet, and some tin whistle, as well as auxiliary percussion (I'm not coordinated enough to play a drum kit lol), and also can do some vocal impressions.

Influences

George Harrison... Ace Of Base... E-type.. lots of electronic dance music but mostly 90s eurodance and 80s synth-pop, a lot of folk and some country, with a lot of harmony....I'm a big fan of pop music, but that's really anything that has a catchy or moving melody I can sing to! I also love Enya and am a big fan of music from my background, like Celtic or Finnish/Scandinavian, and other world and new age music. Also important is the new techno-new-age sound of bands like Delerium, Sleepthief, Conjure One and Balligomingo.

EQUIPMENT
