Emoto’s featured artist Kotomi (aka Lauren Hillman) collaborated with Hahn for the last track on his EP release, titled “Grace”.

“I started following [Los Angeles singer] Kotomi on Soundcloud, and a few hours later she messaged me and said she liked my stuff, and said we can work together. I emailed her some instrumentals, and she picked that one. Then she went for a drive around California, around the coast, all day, recording in her car on her voice recorder. That’s pretty cool. I wish I could write music like that. She pretty much wrote it in a day and sent it back,” – Hahn said of his partnership with Kotomi in a recent interview with SPIN.

In addition to collaborating with other artists, our songstress Kotomi has been releasing a new song on the first Tuesday of every month this year! Keep up with her by following her on Facebook or Soundcloud.

OutsideIn

Emoto featured artist Opus Orange’s latest release “Outside In” was recorded entirely outside in the California wilderness above 10,000’ elevation. Using only solar power off the grid, they have reinvented their songs with washtubs and old BBQ grates for percussion, a washtub bass with a broom handle, and a variety of instruments found around camp including banjo, ukulele, melodica, and kalimba. Birds sing, insects buzz, and the wind whistles throughout these six songs – nature as an improvising musician.
