Turkish born Emre Aydin aka Emreaydin is all the rave in Europe. Emreaydin’s road to stardom began in 2002 when his band “6. Cadde” (founded by him and band mate Onur Ela) competed in a “Sing Your Song” Compostion contest. 6.Cadde under Emre’s leadership took first place opening the door to bigger better things.
The band produced its first album, “The album 6,” it was very successful and all seemed perfect until Onur Ela called it quits with music. Emreaydin was on his own. He continued on his journey to stardom using the power of the internet and social media to publicize what would later be a hit single, “Belki Bir Gün Özlersin,” a song about loneliness and losing love.
The stage was set for even greater things for Emreaydin. He signed with Sony BmG/GRGDN label and in 2006 produced his first solo album themed “Loneliness” and titled “Afili Yalnızlık.” Emreaydin on this Freshman album displayed his song writing skills; he wrote and composed 5 of the 10 songs in the album.
“Afili Yalnızlık” earned Emereaydin numerous awards and cemented his place in the hearts of rock fans and Europe’s music industry as one of the best rock artist out of Europe. In 2008 adding to his many trophies and awards, Emreaydin won the 2008 “Best Artist of the Year” at MTV’s European Music Awards in the Pop-Rock category our of Turkey and “2008 Europe’s Favorite Act of the Year.”
He prepares to debut his sophomore album later this year themed ‘Melancholy” with a East Meets West hybrid sound.
