One of my favorite gigs was opening up for Sylvan Esso. I was blown away by Amelia’s vocal style and stage presence.
10. How important is technology to your creative process?
I use many different types of technology in my creative process. I typically create beats first through Ableton. Then I use effect pedals on electric guitar and vintage synths and record them through Logic Pro. After that I record layered vocals on Logic Pro.
11. Do you have siblings and how do they feel about your career/art?
I have a younger brother that plays drums, piano, bass and guitar and he also sings and writes songs. He is a big supporter of my music and has performed with me live and on some of my albums.
