Emily Yacina is a Pennsylvania-born Long Beach-based musician and songwriter who began writing and recording songs at age 14. Drawing on making sense of relationships and navigating inner cosmology, Yacina released her first set of songs in 2011 and continued to release batches of EPs over the proceeding years, culminating eventually in her first full length album Heart Sky in 2017 and her first studio album Remember The Silver in 2019. In 2023, Yacina began working with Rostam Batmanglij to co-produce 2 songs written the previous year. While Trick of the Light is about the role of fantasy in relationships; Nothing Lasts was written after Yacina read Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower, inspired by Butler’s idea of God being change.
