Who is UMI? The Lo-fi R&B Songstress Everyone's Talking About

As a Lo-fi R&B songstress capturing the human experience, UMI is a name you will soon start hearing all over, if you haven’t already that is.

UMI is also currently enrolled in college at the University of Southern California where she writes, sings, and of course, studies hard. She is able to balance school, friends, and her love for music, which shows how much of a powerhouse she is about to become.
The young artist is also very independent, even self-directing one of her own music videos. In an interview with Bright Lite Magazine UMI talked about her independence and creativity.
“I do all the creative direction for my music videos with an amazing team of young creatives called Ouros! But I did direct all of my earlier stuff (like Happy Again). I love it because I get to be hands-on with my art and really curate the aesthetic I envision for myself. But I’ve also learned that working with other people tends to lead to more creative projects and ideas so I like doing both.”
