It wasn’t long before Rodriguez gained attention in 2012. She anonymously released a series of one-minute-long demos via YouTube. Her stage name was inspired by a Tarot card reading she did with a friend. “The first card he pulled out was an Empress card, and I was like, ‘It’s me, I am Empress.’ […] the Empress card is connected to fertility and mothering and strength. It’s kind of nice to have those feelings.”

Music Career

Rodriguez released her debut bilingual four-track EP named “Systems” on April 2nd, 2013. The EP was released via Double Denim and Terrible Records in the UK and North America, respectively. She also began touring with popular artists and performing at music events. She supported Kimbra, Florence and The Machine, and more.
