Ah, seventeen years old. In the modern world, we are expected to weather the storm at the age of adolescence, but for most of us, we are still discovering our purpose in our lives. Amber T, however, seems to have it all sorted, and she’s cooking up her own storm in the shape of her irresistible soundscapes.
As her teenage charisma bounds from the pages of the latest issue of Global, Her Magazine, Sir Elton John stating that she’s ‘brilliant’, and the ink still drying on her newly signed Ambassador deal with Yamaha Music London, the young solo artist unveils her sensational look and sound in the form of her new single, ‘Get Me’, which is available now.
Young, nebulous and dead from the neck up - I think I speak on behalf of a lot of people when I say that’s how I’d describe my seventeen-year-old self. This certainly can’t be said for Amber T, though, because she’s exploded out of the blocks, fast becoming one of the UK’s hottest rising indie stars, with a string of live festival dates confirmed for the summer, supporting the likes of Sophie Ellis Bextor and Toploader.
Amber T started her musical journey a long time ago, but it wasn’t until 2020 until she first blessed the world with her creative instinct to wow her audience with powerful lyrics and hard-hitting vocals. The first two songs that she released, ‘Jigsaw’ and ‘No Company’, have both garnered worldwide attention, being rewarded with over 100,000 Spotify streams already. These songs then went on to feature as Tracks of the Day on BBC Introducing The South and received great radio and press support.
The impressive singer/songwriter followed her trailblazing path up with her first 2021 release ‘Shaken’, a co-written song over Zoom with friends ‘Galaxy Thief’. This time, her single was featured on Record of The Day and played six times across the BBC Introducing Platform and numerous other stations across the UK.
Amber’s latest single ‘Get Me’ is another musical gateway to serenity and solitude. The brilliantly procured indie/pop anthem sees her take a more raw and rocky approach, which plays an important role in manifesting an emotional construct. Sorry to keep bringing it up, but at just seventeen years old, Amber is already capable of going toe to toe with some of today’s most influential artists.
Having taught herself how to play a guitar and keyboard at eight years old, with unrivalled passion and determination, Amber has opened a lot of doors for a boundless future. She has clocked up over 200 live gigs, including a sell-out headline show for Teenage Cancer Trust, but she also helped to bring a smile to many during lockdown, doing live stream performances for RoboMagic, Live Nation, Camden Live and many others.
Thankfully, 2021 is beginning to open up to performing live and you will be able to see Amber perform at various festivals across the UK this summer including Foodies Festival in Winchester, Cambridge, London &, Brighton with headliners Scouting For Girls, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Toploader.
'Get Me' is out now on all major streaming platforms.
