About Ainjel Emme

Ainjel Emme (she/her) is a producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and recording engineer who is comfortable in many roles within the record making process. She's chiefly sought out for vocal production, tasteful overdubs, 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 songwriting camp at the Record Plant in Hollywood (with Alicia Keys - December 2019). She is an advocate for women, non-binary, and LGBTQ+ folks in the recording arts, a member of Soundgirls and Women's Audio Mission, an occasional contributor to Tape Op Magazine, and a voting member of the Producers & Engineers Wing of the Recording Academy. Recent credits include singles by Flyte, Nasty Cherry, Overcoats, Yves Tumor, Stephanie Poetri, Joji, Jelani Aryeh, Blu DeTiger, Tommy Genesis, Lawrence Rothman, Alfa, Paper Citizen, and more. Full-length projects feature 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 under the indie singer-songwriter umbrella, I found my first sweet spot in the studio as a session musician and vocalist. During this era, I began formally studying audio engineering and began my journey to the producer’s chair. I’ve worked in the record production universe full-time for the past 10 years, occupying every role from coffee maker to bass player to topliner to assistant engineer to record producer. The dimensionality of my experience has equipped me with a bountiful creative toolbox. I enjoy forging safe, authentic space with the artists in my care. I aim to capture legacy quality performances and arrangements that invite audiences to fully immerse themselves in the world that surrounds every song.
