Akemi Fox is one of Manchester’s most soothing alternative R&B artists to debut in recent years. Describing her sound as alternative R&B, Akemi exudes a potent combination of independence and innovation using her knowledge in music and culture to her benefit. Since the release of her first single, ‘Lemon Tea’, Akemi has found herself on her own unique path of success.
After landing her a spot on Tidal’s Rising: R&B playlist - a place for emerging artists changing the face of R&B - she’s gained a national following of fans who vibe with her unorthodox R&B vibe and youthful aesthetic.
Akemi is very much part of the remarkable DIY generation of artists coming through, stating that she writes her best lyrics freestyling over beats from her long term producer, Teo. Her discography is now one filled with emotion, divine spiritual energy and nostalgia that enthrals you upon first listen. 2021 is Akemi’s year for the masses to catch on to her majestic mix of R&B.
