Music Submission, Emilija Valiukevičiūtė

Artist or Band Name: 
Emilija Valiukevičiūtė

Born and raised in Lithuania on a diet of Mozart - being a classically trained piano player, with a dash of Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Gwen Stefani - being a regular MTV addicted millenial, a daughter of a social worker and a TV cameraman had a dream childhood spent in forests picking mushrooms and berries, swimming in dreamy Lithuanian lakes and growing flowers in her grandmother’s garden. Fast forward to the present moment, she also had a burning passion for Pop music and at the age of 18 packed her bags and moved to London to pursue her dreams of being a Pop Star. Today she continues to draw to those girl next door roots mixed with some harder urban sounds discovered in a foreign city away from home where she immersed herself in her ultimate loves - hip-hop/commercial dance and contemporary music. 

Emilija makes a return to the UK music scene after her Eurovision debut with a powerful Pop Rock record “Soften My Edges”. In her own words, this record is meant to empower everyone who is a rough diamond through love.
