EMAN8 delivers uplifting new single ‘Inspired’
Following the success of his Billboard-supported single ‘Amen’, multi-talented singer and MC EMAN8 returns with his self-produced new track, ‘Inspired.’
Flaunting an upbeat instrumental production, ‘Inspired’ serves as the second single from EMAN8’s debut self-titled album, which is set to drop in late Spring, and leans into his sharp and creative storytelling style.
‘Inspired’ came about through a writing session booked between EMAN8, collaborator Molly Moore, and artist Lizzy Land. Lizzy faced the challenge that many aspiring artists come across in their career; being torn between a job to make ends meet and taking a chance to follow one’s dreams. Lizzy took a chance by quitting her day job and following her passion to be an artist. It was this same day she joined Brandyn & Molly in the studio and ‘Inspired’ was born from three independent artists coming together, connecting on a deeper level, and mutual understanding of the sacrifices one needs to make to feel ‘Inspired.’
With the West-Coasted based rising talent taking his title from his Jamaican middle name ‘Emanate’, the prodigious talent honed his craft via a childhood spent in Saint Louis, fusing elements of hip-hop, soul, ska, and electronic.
Kickstarting his career under the name Brandyn Burnette, ‘Inspired’ serves as the second release under his EMAN8 alias, with the LA star taking influence from artists such as Anderson Paak, Jon Bellion, John Mayer, D’Angelo & Chance The Rapper.
Inspired by his Caribbean roots, as well as a passion for 90’s hip hop & soul paved by artists like J Dilla, Dr Dre, Lauryn Hill & The Fugees, ‘Inspired’ is a slick showcase of EMAN8’s infectious style, and is set for release on January 29th.
