Kristina Emmott is best known as willolux, a Canadian indie-folk bedroom-pop musician whose tuneful, poetic work is rich with retro stylings and poignant depth.
Emmott’s first memories of songwriting began around the age of 8, where she would wander the playground alone, in constant search of melodies in her mind. A precocious child, she dove into rock ‘n roll and punk rock from an early age due to her musician father’s influence. “I have very early, vivid memories of exotic birds suddenly chirping in the living room, and I knew that my dad had just put on another Pink Floyd record… I have fond memories of being in an awe-struck daze, watching the vinyl spin, taking it all in.”
After years of songwriting alone in her bedroom, self-proclaimed introvert Emmott began playing her songs for anybody who would hear them, leading her to play in various venues around her hometown of Vancouver, which eventually led to her expanding her reach, albeit fighting her inner introvert, as a busking performer in the streets of Paris, Barcelona, and Melbourne. Upon her return to Vancouver, Emmott began writing a new collection of songs
which would slowly form into her first full-length album as willolux. With no funding behind her creative pursuits, she worked tirelessly at 3 jobs in order to self-fund her release.
