PROFESSOR OF PERSONAL ROYALTY
At just four years old, EMPRESS’s life changed when her hands touched the black and white keys on a keyboard for the first time.
Her love for music evolved into a career as a professional dancer, and she became one of the youngest members of the San Francisco Ballet.
As her talents developed, EMPRESS moved to New York City where she performed on Broadway as the lead in the Tony Award-winning production of An American in Paris. Today, her career comes full-circle, as she releases her debut EP, We Own This Crown, in 2021.
About The Episode
We talk about how she goes beyond the marketing boxes that want to keep her trapped as "just" a dancer or "just" an actress or "just" a singer or "just" this or "just" that. She also shares stories about moving in the tech world, the challenges she faced there, and how she makes it all look easy.
