ABOUT AE: Songwriter / Musician / Producer / Lefty-Who-Plays-Righty.

Born in the same year as the Sony Walkman, AINJEL EMME cut her teeth on a steady diet of cruisin’ oldies, classic rock, living room jams, and 80s MTV. She spent her childhood in a pair headphones, abusing the record button on her portable boombox. As a teenager, she dropped out of school, haunted the all-ages clubs, busked from Austin’s 6th street to the Venice Beach boardwalk, and dreamed of becoming a rock star. Eventually, she figured out what she truly loved more than anything else on Earth:

Makin’ records.

After releasing two independent solo albums [HEARTACHE IS BORING (2003) and EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL (2011)], Ainjel shifted gears to study production and audio engineering. She began procuring session work as a vocalist, instrumentalist, and topliner. This lead to opportunities to assist in world-class studios and study under talented audio professionals. After five years of internships and experience building, she embarked on the mission for which she’d unwittingly been preparing for years — becoming a full-time female music producer. Only 5% of music producers and recording engineers are women.

In 2015, AE co-founded the BLOCK OF JOY, a multimedia house providing content creation and artistic development to upcoming talent in music and film. She now spends most days helping other indie artists do their thing from a small facility in East Hollywood. She loves mentoring young talent and working with artists who live outside of the lines. She’s a passionate advocate for women and underserved talent in the music community.

Ainjel has been quietly assembling her third full-length solo album between projects.  Most recently, she produced records for Rie Daisies (“Monstress” – July 2018) and Leslie Nuss (The Album V: Part One – June 2018). Following their 2017 collaboration for the album Spark and Fury,” AE teamed up with singer-songwriter Alfa once again on the single “Fool’s Gold” (July 2018).
