21 year-old Amber-Simone has shared her uplifting new single, ‘Only You’.
Lifted from her upcoming ‘For Those Moments’ EP, the feel-good song draws from a wide-ranging palette of influences including funk, soul and electronica, ‘Only You’ follows the release of the exceptional ‘Strawberry Kisses’, which came out late last year.
Recently picked by Annie Mac as a ‘New Name’ for 2019, Amber-Simone has been singing since she was 16, 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 and 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 and joined Franc Moody on their recent arena tour supporting Nile Rodgers & Chic.
