PAB EMSON is a pianist, composer, producer, and singer born in a little town in the south of France. Coming from two parents professional musicians, music has always been in his life. Instead of watching cartoons as a child, he was admiring live performances on TV of artists such as Jaco Pastorius, Alain Caron or Joe Zawinul. Classically trained, he started playing the piano when he was 6, started singing when he was 8, and started composing and music producing at the beginning of middle school. Performing was a huge part of his life: he began performing for general audiences of 1,500 people for summer events in his area from 2009 to 2012. His family, supporting his desire to keep growing as an artist, moved to the Principality of Monaco for professional reasons. As soon as he arrived there, Pab dedicated himself to working towards achieving his childhood dream to move to the United States and evolve as an artist. Finishing first in his class in high school, he was noticed by amazing people of the principality who believed in him and supported him in his goal to study at the prestigious music school Berklee College of Music in Boston (USA). The price of this education was way beyond his financial capacity, but Pab never gave up and kept working.
He was the opening act for the DJ Kungs at the “Monte-Carlo Sporting” in July 2019. During this event, he demonstrated his potential and weeks later received the help from donors to start his first year at Berklee College of Music one month later. Since his arrival, he has made the most of his time, taken advantage of every opportunity possible, and flourished as a student and a musician. After arriving at Berklee, he was enrolled in advanced classes and was placed on the Dean's list of the school after only one semester. In November 2019, after an extensive audition process, he was chosen to participate in the shows directed by Rob Lewis (current musical director of Christina Aguilera). He also is dedicated to writing, producing, and recording his own original music and has created an impressive library of material all on his own, while also participating in different projects alone and with other talented artists.
