Despite being only 23 years old, Amber Simone  is one of the most interesting young British singer-songwriters of the moment. Born in September 1996 in East London, she grew up listening to Sade, Michael Jackson and The Police, finding in music a way to express her inner world and experience total freedom.

Her first single, the sweet Taught Me Better, caught the attention of industry insiders who compared her soulful, gender fluid voice to the one of James Blake, Prince and The Weeknd.
