Esmé

aspiring siren, rhinestone cowgirl

I'm Esmé, I'm 20 years old, and I'm making the soundtrack to my life (and maybe yours too). I'm from the middle part of North Carolina, where I grew up on classic rock and old country, and am currently based in Los Angeles. I spent my teenage years performing as a jazz singer in lounges and cafes, in addition to hanging out in parking lots and being depressed. One covid-interrupted college stint later, I'm now focused on my original music that mixes all of these influences with my love for pop, R&B, and alternative music. Honestly I think genres are stupid and I would rather you just listen to my music and hopefully enjoy it, but if you like Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean, Fiona Apple, SZA, David Bowie, and Nina Simone, there's a 99.9% chance you'll like me too. Some other fast facts about me: I have a virgo stellium, I'm on a mission to try every gas station slushee in America, and I write my best songs while aimlessly walking or driving.
I'm also releasing my first ~real~ single on all platforms soon, but until then you can listen to my music at soundcloud.com/songs-from-esme, and keep up with me on all socials @esmeishername <3

OH HEY, FOR BEST VIEWING, YOU'LL NEED TO TURN YOUR PHONE
