You can catch a stripped-back live performance from Berlin-born singer-songwriter Emileo as part of the Hot Press Y&E Series – supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
Born in Berlin in 2000, Emileo moved to Spain at 16 before heading south to the beautiful Morocco. The Young artist went on to win the Sinead O'Connor BA Commercial Modern Music Scholarship of BIMM Dublin in 2020 taking the artist to Ireland’s capital where she now resides as she creates her unique sound.
Sinead O’Connor herself described Emileo as having “something very special”.
Tonight at 7pm, the artist is going to deliver her impressive discography in its most stripped-back, intimate form.
Recently the accomplished musician organised the charity event ‘Music for Morocco’ after the country experienced a horrific earthquake – she was able to raise 1500€ of donations for the victims of the incident.
Watch the Hot Press Y&E Series - supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media - live on the Hot Press Instagram at 7pm each night.
