Emily Estefan is a musical force to be reckoned with, having earned a degree in contemporary writing and production from Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music. Growing up surrounded by music, Emily developed a deep passion for the craft at a very young age, performing for the first time on stage at the age of eight – on her mother's (Gloria Estefan's) world tour. That passion grew as she did and now she presents her full-length debut album, Take Whatever You Want.
The record collects a jazz, neo-soul and funk soundscape, showcasing the rising artist's incredible talent and the versatility of her musicianship. The album was written, produced and recorded by Emily in its entirety (excluding horns) and features lead single "Fuck To Be," celebrating her individuality and the importance of not conforming to society's expectations and follow-ups "I Just Want It To Be Over" and "Reigns (every night)."
About Take Whatever You Want, Emily says, "I think the biggest thing I want to put across with the album is packed right into the title "Take Whatever You Want". It's a large collection of genres and themes and it's kind of impossible to understand all of it or feel connected to all of it, but when you step back, even though it's kind of a journey through a lot of different sounds, it's definitely one energy put forth.
"I guess the biggest theme or message is that I'm not trying to fit any other mold. It's the first expression where I didn't confine myself to any barriers and you can take whatever you want from it and interpret it however you want. And just as much as it's my music, when it's let go, it's completely yours as well and I think that's what music is."
