About Ainjel Emme

Ainjel Emme (she/her) is a producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and recording engineer who splits her time between Los Angeles and her private studio in Joshua Tree. She's chiefly sought out for vocal production, sweetening, and an innate ability to carry a record across the finish line. Ainjel was one of three recording engineers hand-picked for She is the Music's Billboard songwriting camp at the Record Plant in Hollywood (with Alicia Keys - December 2019). She is a vocal advocate for women, non-binary, and LGBTQ+ folks in the recording arts, a member of Soundgirls, Women's Audio Mission, and the Audio Engineering Society (AES), an occasional contributor to Tape Op Magazine, and a voting member of the Recording Academy (Producers and Engineers Wing). Recent credits include singles by Kristeen Young ft. David Bowie, Nasty Cherry, Yves Tumor, Stephanie Poetri, Joji, Flyte, Blu DeTiger, Overcoats, Jelani Aryeh, Tommy Genesis, Lawrence Rothman, Alfa, and more. Full-length projects feature an upcoming album from pop sisters Aly & Aj, the self-titled debut by Los Angeles rock quartet Kills Birds (prod. by Justin Raisen), The Mastersons' most recent LP "No Time For Love Songs" (prod. by Shooter Jennings), and debut albums from Mustangs of the West (prod. by Mark Howard) and Hazel English (Justin Raisen/Ben H. Allen).

Ainjel's Experience

After spending half a life as an indie singer-songwriter, I moved to Los Angeles and started procuring work as a studio musician / vocalist. During this era, I began formally studying audio engineering and set off on my journey to the producer’s chair. I’ve been working in the real-world record production universe full time for the past 10 years. My multi-dimensional journey has equipped me with a bountiful creative toolbox. I seek to curate liberated, authentic space with the artists in my care.
