Opening by Ashley Mehta
Em Beihold’s music converses and connects much like your closest friend would. She isn’t afraid to be blunt, disclose her insecurities, or laugh unexpectedly, and exudes nothing but love. It’s why she’s emerged as an unmistakable and inimitable platinum-certified pop songstress with north of 4 billion streams and widespread critical acclaim. She’s the girl on the red carpet with the $10 coat (who will proudly tell anyone who asks!) and who sends her hair stylist a picture of Jessica Rabbit as inspo for a late-night TV appearance.
The Los Angeles native climbed into the pop culture conversation with the 2022 platinum smash “Numb Little Bug,” generating over 2 billion global streams in addition to cracking the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart, #5 at Pop radio and holding the #1 spot at Hot AC for three weeks. She only accelerated her rise with the Egg In The Backseat EP, making her late-night television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
She incited the applause of The New York Times, Stereogum, Teen Vogue, V Magazine, and Variety who hailed, “Beihold is very much part of the new guard.” She lent her voice to a duet version of Stephen Sanchez’s “Until I Found You,” which has eclipsed 1 billion streams. Moreover, they lit up The Late Late Show with James Corden together with their energetic and honest performance. She opens up even more on a series of 2023 singles for Moon Projects/Republic Records including her upcoming single “Pedestal,” Oct 12th, which she’s been performing live the past year and has quickly become a fan favorite begging for a proper release.
