We had the good fortune of connecting with Emery Kelly and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Emery, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
It takes a lot of time to master your craft, specifically in the entertainment industry. and I still know I’m not a master at my craft at the moment, but I have much room to grow and knowing that keeps me excited and pushes me forward.

In my view, to become a master at being an “artist in music” means being you have to able to use everything necessary to create, from scratch. Some of those necessary things would be learning how to play every instrument needed to create a song and understanding the fundamentals of recording every instrument on the specific music production software you are using. Also, Being able to Produce, Write, Engineer, Mix & Master your music, by yourself. It takes years of hard work and practice.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am an singer, actor, musician, producer & writer. I stared my career in 2013 on the Xfactor S3 and have worked on multiple Tv shows like Disney channel, Netflix, and Disney Plus. I feel like what sets me apart from others is the realness I bring to the table. I’m always real with how I am feeling. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to always be yourself and be 100% in it to win it. Its never going to be easy. Right now I want to show the world that I can make any type or form of music.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love every place I’ve been to. Theres always something different about each of them that makes each and every one place special. but if you’re ever in LA, the best spot is Malibu! The best spot to eat in LA is this cafe I used to go to everyday after work and its called Crave cafe. Trust me you’ll love it!
