NEWS: A*M*E Takes Her Pop On The Road…

Despite appearing on the UK music scene just a few short months ago, 17 year – old A*M*E’s brand of infectious, 90’s inspired, quirky pop has already planted her firmly on the radar for 2012.

Her first release, ‘City Lights; was written with 16 year- old sonic wizard MNEK (featuring his brother Bartovan) and the upbeat slice of pop has already clocked up over 140,000 views on YouTube, featured in the top 10 on Hypemachine and been a favourite across pop blogs and websites both in the UK and US.

‘Ride or Die’ follows on from this and is another playful pop collaboration between the two amazingly talented teens with a video to match. If you have a love of pop (or horses for that matter) then you are guaranteed, like us,  to fall head over heels.

Travelling from war-torn Sierra Leone at the age of eight, A*M*E grew up in South London and having finished school just last year she has been hard at work writing, recording and performing but it doesn’t stop there. A*M*E (aka Amy Kabba) has also been busy creating her own fanzine, called (coincidentally enough) The A*M*E.. Halfway between Just 17 and SuperSuper the magazine is all about A*M*E’s take on the world and her love of fashion, music, the 90’s and everything in between and with the first issue a resounding success, the second is due to hit the streets later this month.

To top it all off, A*M*E is about to hit the road and take her POP across the UK. If you fancy checking her out then head along to one of these dates…
