ili Booking Agency Profile

Book ili for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Scottish singer-songwriter Emily Middlemas, also known professionally as ili (stylized in lowercase), is recognized for having successfully managed her career in music.

Middlemas' early appearance in the public eye as a contestant on Britain's Got skill demonstrated her natural skill and laid the groundwork for her future ambitions. She started her performing career at the young age of nine with the band Loud N Proud, and by the age of thirteen, she was already writing her own original songs.

Middlemas' resounding victory at the TeenStar competition in 2014 is proof of her developing musical talent. Later that year, she entered the eleventh season of The X Factor, reaching it to the judges' houses before leaving. This was the turning point in her journey.

Middlemas didn't let the failure stop him and came back in 2016 for the thirteenth season of The X Factor with unflinching resolve. She was selected for Simon Cowell's prized "girls" category after giving a stunning performance of Stevie Wonder's "Master Blaster (Jammin')" in her audition. Middlemas' skill and charm helped her advance through the rounds of the competition, avoid elimination, and earn a position in the live concerts.

When Middlemas found herself in the semi-finals and up against Matt Terry in the bottom two, her journey reached a turning point. Middlemas' experience on The X Factor came to an end with her elimination in fourth place, but her participation left a lasting impression. She changed her stage name to ili over the ensuing years, going on to independently release her first extended play, "Changes," in 2019.

Middlemas has garnered media attention for reasons other than just her musical endeavors. Her romance with fellow performer Ryan Lawrie, which started in 2015, has garnered media attention and may soon result in an engagement in June 2022.

Emily Middlemas, formerly known as ili, is an example of the tenacity, aptitude, and zeal that characterize a committed artist..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking ili to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like ili in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking ili or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
ili's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking ili for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book ili, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing ili. After we consult with them, we will provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate ili booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book ili for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final ili booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will ili charge for an event. An example fee to book ili is in the starting range of $25,000-$39,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the ili agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The ili manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book ili for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the ili agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book ili, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the ili booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for ili, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
