Raised across Europe and Asia, and based in New York City, Amber Mark weaves her deep knowledge of international styles into a stunning musical tapestry. Growing up on a diet of soul, R&B, bossa nova and electronica, Amber’s rich songwriting and production talents were distilled into her 2016 release – “the 3.33am” EP. The release was a dedication to her late mother and an exploration of how grief can birth incredible creativity. Now on Conexão, Amber is turning her sights to the future. “It’s about my process of finding love again,” she explains of the project. “It’s like you’re reading a book about my life and this is the next chapter.” On stunning lead single “Love Me Right,” Amber lays out the terms of a relationship over pared-down, purposeful R&B rhythms. Like all her music, the song is an honest reflection of real-life emotion.
This Spring, Amber kicks off her just announced US tour on May 6th in Washington D.C. running through May 30th. The Conexão EP confirms Amber Mark as one of 2018’s most inventive artists, both as a songwriter and a producer. In amongst worldwide tour dates and further releases, Amber’s first 2018 release is a mission statement for the year ahead.
