Momentum: Amber – Simone
Having been singing since she was 16, 21-year-old Amber’s vocal sound is unique and powerful, citing Millie Womack and Michael Jackson among her influences. Growing up in east London and then moving to Hertfordshire in her early teens, Amber listened to funk and soul music throughout her childhood, a sound which has very much impacted her own music, along with her discovery of indie electronica, artists such as Niki and the Dove or Metronomy, and 80’s film scores. In addition to her own material, Amber’s had a writing cut on the Aquilo album as well as writing with the likes of Shy Luv, Franc Moody, Phairo and Joe Hertz. Singles to date have been supported by the likes of DJ Target and Twin B at 1xtra and received the accolades of New Music Friday and Best of the Week at Spotify and Apple, respectively.
