E5 will perform in front of an expecting crowd of 20,000 during the Harvest Festival also known as "Chusok" or Moon Festival. It is a major celebration for the Korean community in New York and worldwide. This year there will be a festival in New York and then Overpeck Park New Jersey on the following weekends where she will perform again.
It is a rare moment in New York Music Industry that an Asian pop performing artist as young as 15 year old ever took to stage. In a culture of strict traditions, academics is always precedent. E5 brings new music and a uniqueness that is representative in her strict raising and American influence. Atypical for the culture but not for the music scene of New York, Project E5 set involves piano playing to a ballad she co-wrote and sings, to song and dance that includes a DJ, acrobats, street performers, and dance routines reminiscent of Ciara and Beyonce.
E5 has been playing piano since the age of 5 which is popular of the Korean culture. She attends high school in Franklin Square, Long Island and works rigorously developing her skills in percussion, ear training and dance as well as studying with top industry professionals utilizing Grammy winning vocal techniques by Seth Riggs in downtown Manhattan. Her music production and direction is overseen by JackDazey who attended the University of Southern California for Music Recording and recently completed an article connecting Schoenberg to Rap music's lyrical delivery on his new blog.
JackDazey also serves as a consultant for Project E5. While also raised in Long Island, he states that, "Music has always been the synapse for cultural bridges, E5 hope to utilize the power of music to positively influence social and academic well being in youth and to encourage understanding in an ethnically diverse city."
E5 is currently working together with numerous non-profits organizations throughout the city bringing about her own movement of getting youth more involve in their own local organization. She feels it is a benefit to provide young teens with skills while keeping youngsters active and away from drugs and alcohol. She recently ran in the Nike Human Race on Randall's Island to help support the WWF, and Lance Armstrong Foundation.
While the school year is off to an early start, E5 has a demanding schedule of performances through out New York and New Jersey. Her calendar of events can be seen at www.sonicbids.com/
