Debut single from her upcoming electro-clash house release "Bad Gal".
Named after the Italian word for Love, Ammoye is to music what the stars are to the sky – beautiful. The smoothness of her voice draws listeners in, and the power of her lyrics holds them as she effortlessly sings about Life, Love, and justice. At the age of 5, Ammoye knew her calling was to perform music.
Ammoye's musical style and song writing was deeply influenced by her upbringing. She was born and raised by her grandparents in Clarendon, Jamaica where life presented its own unique trials and tribulations. She found solace from a young age by singing in the church choir, as well as at the top of her favourite mango tree in the family backyard, where she made regular appearances on Sunday afternoons and regaled the neighbourhood with her latest songs and poems.
After completing high school at Clarendon College, Ammoye moved to Toronto, Canada to be with her Mother, where her career moved to the next level. She formed a church group called "Sisters In Christ", formed an organization called "The Voices of the Underground Artist Movement"(The Voices), an organization designed to give artists with similar mind sets the opportunity to perform and promote their music. This breath of fresh air was welcome, and received great support from fellow artists. Not satisfied with those accomplishments, Ammoye kept pushing forward.
Influenced by Reggae, Rock, Hip Hop and Soul, Ammoye worked with Dubmatix and the album 'Renegade Rocker', performing the chune "Push". Other artists on the album include Sugar Minott, Micheal Rose, Alton Ellis, Willi Williams, Pinchers, Linval Thompson, Wayne Smith and Ranking Joe, she has also worked with Sassales and Version Excursion who produced her E.P. entitled "Kicking Rocks" (available at www.versionexcursion.com).
Currently being managed by Kaya Entertainment Group ,Ammoye consistently travels across Canada and the U.S. as she works with greats such as Kreesha Turner, Michael Buble, Corey Lee, Anjulie and a host of others. In between tour dates, Ammoye is working on her debut album which is scheduled to be released in October, 2009, and will include musical productions from Fireball Records in Jamaica (headed by Conrad 'Suga Roy' Moore and Chris Hunt), Chiney K Productions in Jamaica (headed by Paul Lowe-Chin), Dubmatix from Toronto, Subsonic from Montreal as well as production from England and Germany.
With the international release of her two debut singles "In Love" and "Lost Love", radio DJ's and listeners from England, Europe, the US, Canada and the Caribbean agree that Ammoye is to music what the stars are to the sky – beautiful!
