“Amahla may be one of the next big voices exported from the U.K” - Bandcamp
"She possesses the vocal ability to knock your ears clean off your head.. but instead puts all the focus and effort into the subject matter, using her singing ability as a vehicle for her stories" – Earmilk
Hackney raised singer, songwriter and musician Amahla taps into an era before her time to create vintage-inspired Soul music.
After releasing her debut single 'Old Soul' in 2018 Amahla was awarded the PRS Lynsey De Paul Prize for outstanding female songwriters and the second ever MOBO Awards X Help Musicians fund for her exceptional voice. Since, Amahla released her critically acclaimed EP ‘Consider This’ and over the course of this year has gained tremendous support from critics and fans.
With a focus on live instrumentation, Amahla is a commanding live performer having already packed out two London headline shows at Camden Roundhouse and St Pancras Old Church, as well as performances at Cheltenham Jazz Festival where she was named as ‘one to watch’ by Decca Records and two sets at The Great Escape Festival 2019. All this has led to accomplished performances at legendary venues such as The Jazz Cafe and The Royal Albert Hall.
