Berklee graduate Emily Estefan ’16, the daughter of Latin music icons Gloria and Emilio Estefan, has stepped out with a musical style that’s all her own.

The fast-rising singer-songwriter, drummer, guitarist, and producer released her Billboard-charting debut album, Take Whatever You Want, to wide acclaim earlier this year. The Miami Herald called the album “remarkably deep and sophisticated.” The Associated Press added, “The younger Estefan combines the slinky soulfulness of Erykah Badu, the righteousness of Lorde, and the free jazz of Ornette Coleman.”

After graduating, she founded the indie label Alien Shrimp Records, which signed a multiyear distribution deal with Sony’s RED division last summer.
