About Ainjel Emme

Ainjel Emme (she/her) is a music producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, recording engineer, and vocal specialist who divides her time between Los Angeles and her private studio in Joshua Tree, CA. + + + + + As a producer, Ainjel is steeped in a culture of reverence and detail. High fi sound, lo-fi sensibility. She is a disciple of Sylvia Massy's "adventure recording" style and loves pre-production / writing and recording sessions in inspired, off-beat spaces. Her production work on "Alindahaw" by Filipino-Amercian indie songstress Alfa helped snag the artist the Grand Prize for Best World Song in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (2021). She is a true indie and loves working with independent and developing artists. + + + + + AE's work as a vocal producer is sought out by artists and producers from all genres. From warm and natural (Flyte, The Mastersons), to feral and electrifying (Yves Tumor, Kills Birds), to shimmering and beautiful (Hazel English, Aly & AJ), AE knows how to capture and frame legacy-quality performances. + + + + + Ainjel was one of three woman 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 tireless 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 features music by Binki, Kristeen Young ft. David Bowie, Blu De Tiger, Paper Citizen, Nasty Cherry, Yves Tumor, Joji, BFlyte, Overcoats, Jelani Aryeh, Tommy Genesis, and more.

Ainjel's Experience

After spending half a life as an indie singer-songwriter, I moved to Los Angeles from Austin and started procuring work as a studio musician / vocalist. Ignited by my time in the studio, I began formally studying audio engineering and set off on my journey to the producer’s chair. I’ve been gratefully working full time in the real-world record production universe for the past 10 years. My multi-dimensional journey has given me a bountiful creative toolbox.
