“Introspection is a look into my mind, how my brain sounds :)” UMI says. “Now more than ever, we are being asked to go within. I created this project with the intention to evoke Introspection, both in myself and in the listener. Introspection is a reflection of my inner journey over the past year, embodying my growth. I’ve never been more honest in my writing, and the sonics of the project is a reflection of me, all of me. ~my hope is that this project can bring healing~ With Gratitude, umi :)”
UMI released two standalone singles earlier this year — “Mother” UMI’s celebration of Earth Day and Mother Nature, and then “Picture Perfect.” In 2019, she released an EP titled Love Language that was released via Loud Robot.
UMI is Tierra Umi Wilson, a 21-year-old songwriter, vocalist, and producer raised in Seattle and now currently in Los Angeles. A former University of Southern California music student, UMI left to focus on her unique R&B sound.
