BMI Indie Spotlight: UMI

Posted in News on July 13, 2023

Named for the Japanese word for ocean, UMI is a 24-year-old Seattle native whose soothing blend of R&B and folk music is crafted to promote a sense of healing and warm human connection. UMI’s Japanese roots and life experience as a queer woman inform her rich, genre-blending songs. Over the course of several acclaimed singles, notably among them 2018’s “Remember Me,” which has accrued over 130 million streams on Spotify, and her 2022 album, Forest in the City, UMI has established herself as a compelling artist whose inclusive music is captivating and inspiring her listeners.
