Born in Watsonville, California in 1982, Emmett Peixoto (Pronounced Peh-shote) didn't wait long to start making music. At the ripe old age of five he began studying the piano. Emmett's older brother Seth Dean and his friends were constantly influencing young Emmett with many genres of music from old school Hip Hop to Classical and everything in between. At the age of eighteen Emmett began listening to artists such as Dylan and Cobain and soon after picked up the guitar and quickly began writing songs. His talent as a songwriter, composer and a singer began to blossom almost immediately. Emmett has a natural ability to weave intricately poetic lyrics that evoke a palpable imagery in the listener's mind into well crafted melodic rhythms. His ability was recognized by a lifelong friend of his older brother named Jeff Hayashi, a guitarist of 20+ years who at the time was working on his own musical endeavors. He and Jeff began to collaborate and it was realized that Emmet's music absolutely had to be recorded. They began recording demos on Emmett's laptop in a makeshift isolation booth made out of a coat closet. These early recordings are affectionately referred to as 'The Minuscule Studio Sessions'. Shortly after that Jeff thought Emmett was ready for some real sessions. The duo compiled and arranged a set of songs and teamed up with producer Rich Williams of Paradise Recording in Santa Cruz, CA. In late 2006 Emmett's freshman EP 'Pools of Glue' was completed. A five song demo that helped him to cut his teeth in the recording environment. Almost immediately after that Emmett went into a songwriting frenzy and after a few prolific weeks was back in the studio working on his sophomore effort, the fifteen track LP 'Under Roses'. Under Roses was completed in February of 2008 and is now being marketed independently to the Film, Television and Digital music industry at large. Emmett is currently a philosophy major at the University of California, Berkeley. He continues to write songs and looks forward to making more records. He's also a world class professional Handball player and is currently ranked 3rd in the world, so as one can see, his eclectic nature extends well beyond his passion for a great melody.
