Amae Love ~ Soulful Songstress
Amae Love is an eclectic singer / songwriter with a sultry, soulful voice that embodies a modern approach to soul, & blues. Amae has a knack for taking the best of that classic vintage sound (like Adele, or Amy Winehouse) and combining it with soulfully sultry melodies paired with positive & empowering lyrics. She likes to call this style “Singin’ the Purples” (the title of her 2010 EP) as in: a higher consciousness version of the blues. Amae’s debut solo Album, Ripe, is a timeless eclectic bend of blues, soul, jazz, and dub flavors, showcasing smooth harmonies, soaring melodies and varied vocal styles, all woven together with soul.
Amae is a multi-faceted talent whose skills as performer include Improvisation, MC’ing, hoop dance, DJ’ing, Dance, Ukelele, and guitar. Listen to all of this Yum on Amae’s band camp page: http://amaelove.bandcamp.com/album/ripe
Amae is due to release her new Album, REAL, later this year.
Amae ran a Successful Kickstarter Campaign to create a pro music video in 2012 for her original song “The Amaezing Birthday Song!” the video is directed & produced by DJ Turner, and stars some incredibly talented people from her inner circle of friends. The song is an extremely catchy & fun little gospel / soul ditty meant to be a positive alternative to our tired old birthday dirge. The video has over 56,000 hits on YouTube so far & hundreds of people are learning it, singing it & loving it. Amae is a HUGE fan of birthdays and could not be more excited about her role as A “Birthday Instigator.” See the birthday song video here & share! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSJT5o12Vzg
