ABOUT THE ARTISTS:


Taller Than Trees is a young and upcoming alternative Spanglish pop/rock band formed at Berklee College of Music in 2016, based in the local music scenes of Boston/NY and Mexico City/Veracruz. They write, record, and perform music with both a refreshing and nostalgic sound. Their music brings back sounds from classic rock and old pop music in a re-invented and catchy way; a new musical identity born from the love of Coldplay and early Maroon 5, mentored by the wisdom of music legends like The Beatles and Queen. A collective project led by Mexican singer-songwriter Miguel (Mike) Soto, with five Singles out, a coming EP on the works, and having done their first tour through their home-country México.


Emme Cannon is a singer-songwriter who's tunes consist of sultry anthems of self-confidence and flowing ballads of love. Growing up in the mountains of Virginia, nature has played a huge role in the inspiration of her writing. With notes of R&B, pop, and alternative styles Emme has shared her music with the Help Save the Next Girl Foundation, Noteworthy Music Festival at Patrick Henry High School, and most recently at Songwriters in the Round (Part IV) hosted by Corey Hunley at the iconic Grandin Theater. Just finishing her first year at Berklee College of Music she was featured in the fall's Singer's Showcase and "The Show" directed by musical director Rob Lewis. She plans on sharing her first releases publicly in the summer of 2020.


Eva Sita (pronounce “Ava Sita”) is the first Ivorian female in history to graduate from Berklee College of Music. She discovered music in 2004 when she moved to Paris as a war refugee. She started producing beats for fun, but never thought that she would be making a living through music someday. After a traumatic family event, Eva dropped out of college and left Paris. Going back to Abidjan, she decided to give music a chance, and quickly got discovered and was featured in several West African media outlets. Classically trained on the piano and the kora (a traditional African string instrument), Eva decided to take her musical career further and auditioned for the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Eva received the first award of her career and performed in Latin America, Europe, Africa, and all over the US.


Kyle Langlois is a young, aspiring musician from Hampden, MA. He is currently a Senior at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he is majoring in Music Performance on Guitar and minoring in Music Technology. Kyle is a Student Ambassador, representing Berklee at events and auditions on campus and around the world. He is also one of the bass vocalists for "Point of Departure," Berklee's student-run, premier vocal jazz group. As an acoustic artist, Kyle enjoys songwriting and playing music from many genres, such as pop, folk, alternative, and jazz. For more information, please visit www.kylelangloismusic.com.


Akemi is a 19-year-old self-taught, aspiring musician from Paris. Based in Boston, she uses her music as a way to express her state of mind and her emotions. Inspired by Dua Lipa, Madison Beer, and Charlotte Lawrence, she takes on a fresh approach to pop. Akemi started taking music seriously at the age of 16 by doing covers with only a piano and a microphone. After getting accepted to Berklee College of Music, she decided to be devoted to music full time. She's now writing her own songs with an array of instruments including piano, guitar, and a ukulele. Moon 2.0 is her first released single. Entirely written, produced and performed by her, Akemi used this song in memory of a lost love. The nostalgic aspect of this ballad brings out her emotional and vulnerable side. For more information, please visit www.akemi-music.com
