Better known as a songwriter than a performer in her own right, New York-born Emily Warren wrote songs for a whole host of high profile pop acts, including Jessie J, 5 Seconds of Summer, Tiësto, and many more. Hailing from a musical family -- during her childhood her father frequently played guitar and sung to her and her brothers -- it was her childhood piano teacher who introduced her to the concept of writing her own songs. Growing up on the Upper West-Side of Manhattan, she attended Trinity, a prestigious preparatory school, from kindergarten to high school. Displaying an affinity for music from an early age, she would form her own band, Emily Warren & the Betters, which featured future MisterWives members Etienne Bowler and Marc Campbell. "Not at All," one of the singles from The Betters EP, found its way onto the short-lived MTV series Skins. As for Warren, she went on to attend the NYU Tisch School/Clive Davis Institute in 2011, and signed a songwriting contract with Dr. Luke's Prescription Songs label in 2013. After a move to Los Angeles, Warren co-wrote the song "Masterpiece," the third single on Jessie J's album Sweet Talker. This paved the way for her to collaborate with her longtime friend Scott Harris to co-write four songs from Handwritten, the platinum-certified album by Shawn Mendes. 2015 saw the release of The Chainsmokers' Bouquet EP, which featured the hugely successful single "Until You Were Gone," co-written by Emily Warren and also featuring her vocals, a contribution which was widely praised. Warren and Scott Harris would team up again shortly after, this time resulting in another Chainsmokers single "Don't Let Me Down," which went platinum and reached the Top Five on the Billboard Hot 100. ~ Simon Spreyer
