AEM is a serial songwriter and making it her mission to be heard. With a long-standing presence in the industry she took some time off from writing what is “supposed to fit” in the box outlined by genre and instead switched to writing and producing songs whichever way they naturally go. Chasing two rabbits for a short time AEM begun moving away from her former genre of Country and namesake Amy Metcalfe and began focusing on new endeavors. In the country music scene Amy received many nominations for her music as well as had a top 50 billboard song, that was later put on hold by Reba McEntire. After putting focus in other genres, it was evident that her skills were meant for a new home in pop-alt. The road to get there is seen in her new Docu-series Journey to Now on YouTube.
Her first song written in this new world was titled “Letting Go” in which AEM was the feature vocalist on the track released by DJ Kav. The song led to her performing an opening slot at a sold out Chainsmokers concert in Calgary Alberta. It was after performing with full choregraphed dancers that AEM made the decision to turn her focus to new goals in the music industry as it just felt “right”.
Taking time to hone this new side of herself AEM has been working hard at learning production so that she can get all the sounds and ideas that live inside her head into a tangible form for you to hear.
Changing her frequent destination from Nashville to Los Angeles AEM has already made a splash on the west coast writing and gaining the attention of writer and producer Dubkiller. Working with Rock Mafia for many years Dubkiller has had his hand in producing and writing for artists like Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Zedd, Brittany Spears and more. The two of them together alongside writer Robin Schorr had a song picked up by a major publishing company in Los Angeles in late 2020.
With 100 new songs over the last 2 years an album in the near future is evident. AEM hopes to continue to bring her relatability as a writer and pair that with sounds from the inner workings of her mind.
