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.
The new single “Bloodline” is some of Eminzada’s most personal work to date. Touching on the desire to live authentically yourself, despite the concerns of your parents, the artist confesses that his life choices cannot be controlled by his family, regardless of their close bond. Singing, “Don't try to stop me, I'm trying out my new wings, I'm flying above your head, You look so small from up here”, the artist speaks about walking away from the expectations that his culture and society have placed upon him, rising above everything that has been holding him back. Eminzada confides, “This song is definitely about my confession that I was raised in a certain way and how my parents always tried their best for me and now because of their hard work they put into raising me I need to live my life in a certain way as they wish.”
Co-written by Farid Jafarli, the track features an echoing melody line performed by Jafarli, which imitates the sound of the Azerbaijani national instrument. Combined with fresh, modern beats and Eminzada’s sultry vocals, “Bloodline” is unlike anything you’ve heard before. Following a similar theme to his previous single “Beautiful Long Hair,” Eminzada creates music with the hopes to connect with anyone who has ever felt like they have to fight for what they love in themselves and who they truly want to be.
EMINZADA’s support for the disabled LGBTQIA+ community is at the 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 organization 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!
