Singer/songwriter Eminzada is a multi-dimensional artist with an exclusive style and powerful mindset. Originally from Baku City, Azerbaijan, Eminzada has grown up with diversity in abundance, living between Azerbaijan, Turkey and the US, before making his move to London.

Paying homage to his classical background in music composition, his music explores notions of camp, lust and escapism, representing freedom of art expression and his homeland’s musical culture and futurism, with his Azerbaijani heritage beaming proudly throughout.

Following the success of his recent singles, Eminzada is back with his latest endeavour «Sociopath», an alternative pop tune with an Azerbaijani touch. Taking inspiration from Aziza Mustafazadeh; whose phenomenal job both compositionally and performance wise fuelled Eminzada’s ambition to fuse vintage Azerbaijani classics with modern melodic embellishments; the chord progression for «Sociopath» was born.

In collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Apollo Love, «Sociopath» was written alongside Fanny Sonderberg, Erin McGlynn and Karim Afas to form a truly contagious single. Eminzada shares, «This is song is about the person who I was afraid to become. At some point, I met so many sociopaths in my life – their toxic character and demanding attitude was part of my life. I felt like a source of energy for them, and at the end of the day I was so drained that I couldn’t continue doing my everyday activities». Continuing an exploration into his truly idysocranic discourses, «Sociopath» soars with electronically-charged synthesisers, a blaring bassline and echoing vocality, that was brought to life and recorded by a harmonious choir from a local church in Hampstead.

Eminzada’s support for the disabled LGBTQIA+ community continues to be at focal point of his work, casting a brighter light on artist’s who have experienced adversity in their life, and had a hard time finding their place within their community. The London based artist is not just an advocate and an ally for this community, but a part of it, as he manages a disability himself in the form of Pectus Excavatum; a disability that for singers in particular can be a devastating hindrance. Unapologetically himself, Eminzada always felt as though he didn’t fit in with society’s standards of male beauty, however has empowered himself and others to stand out and stand up for themselves, overcoming both physical and emotional hurdles.

Amassing close to half a million followers on Instagram and counting and with praise from the likes of Wonderland Magazine and Notion, the Azerbaijan born artist is thriving in more ways than one. Setting his sights high, Eminzada is planning to open a non-profit organisation called «Emin Eminzada Foundation», aiming to help musical artists achieve their goals, alongside releasing his upcoming EP. If his recent work is anything to go by, Eminzada is heading to the top of everyone’s to watch list for 2022 and beyond!
