Emalia Styles is a local musician who lives in Newport News after moving to the area from Philadelphia. A former writer of stories and poetry, Styles began playing guitar and singing publicly just two years ago. Styles struggles to define her style of music, saying its a blend of indie, acoustic, and alternative. A self-defined dork, Styles claims to be "super awkward" but opens up when performing publicly.
Styles made her radio debut on the WMBG Super Sound Showcase sponsored by Retro Daddio to perform her original song "Take Me Under."
