Akemi Fox is one of Manchester’s most soothing alternative R&B artists to debut in recent years. Describing her sound as alternative R&B, Akemi exudes a potent combination of independence and innovation using her knowledge in music and culture to her benefit.

After landing her a spot on Tidal’s Rising: R&B playlist – a place for emerging artists changing the face of R&B – she’s gained a national following of fans who vibe with her unorthodox R&B vibe and youthful aesthetic.
