UMI is a nineteen-year-old female singer and songwriter who came to fame in recent years. Her real name is Tierra Wilson but in her music career, she goes by UMI which is her middle name. UMI means ocean in Japanese, many think it is very fitting because of her style of music and how calming and fluid it is similar to water and waves. She is LA-based, and music has been a part of her life since she was only five years old. Some of her biggest musical inspirations are SZA and Frank Ocean.
Some of my favorite songs by her include:
