MY FIRST TIME: Performing With A Respected Artist

giiaI will never forget the nerves and adrenaline I got from singing with the talented and well known, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.

I was lucky enough to perform three songs with him. Before the show, he pulled me aside and said, “Sing me one of your favorite songs, right now.” I was shocked and taken off guard and couldn’t believe I hadn’t prepared for this moment.

I sang Etta James‘s “At Last” right there acapella. After that my nerves flew away and I had one of the best concert experiences of my life!


Under the alias of GIIA, vocalist Emmy Giarrusso presents soulful atmospheric electronic music inspired by trap and pop. Growing up in Boston, GIIA began singing at a very young age launching her early vocal training in opera. She later attended Berklee College of Music to study contemporary voice. After moving to NYC, GIIA began writing top lines for local producers and was inspired to create music of her own.

Her debut feature track, “One” produced by MEMBA, was released in June 2016 and has been featured on AXS, This Song Slaps, Run the Trap, and Dancing Astronaut’s’ Top Trending Chart. GIIA is now releasing a slew of her own tracks, starting with “Burning Game” and “Fade to Grey,” ready to break into the electronic music scene with an intimate blend of electronic and trap with big ethereal vocals complemented with touches of her operatic style.
