FRESH: ‘No Company’ – Amber T

Amber T has “No Company”

At just 16 years of age, singer/songwriter Amber T releases her second solo single, “No Company’, written by Amber in collaboration with Producers Jamie Brown and Conor Mangan over at JBJ Studios and mastered by the legendary Robin Schmidt at 24-96 Mastering (The 1975/James Arthur/Sam Fender etc.). Self taught on guitar/keyboards, Amber starting performing at the age of 8 at local Open Mics. Her song writing skills developed at the age of 13 with the beautifully penned song “Jigsaw” which was released earlier this year and has so far gained over 100,000 Spotify streams and support from an assortment of genres.

“Jigsaw” was featured as Track on the day on BBC Introducing and has had radio and playlist support on Pop, Indie, Rock, Americana, Country and Dance and DnB courtesy of the remix by NJW. Amber was also the Artist and co-writer on 2 singles released in 2019 with the legendary DR.ZEUS, with “Tick Tock” (over 1.5 mil youtube views and over 200,000 streams) debuted with a live interview/launch on BBC Radio 1, A list on BBC Asian Network, airplay on Kiss fm & an interview for BBC TV News South East. The second single, “She Don’t”, again debuted on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra and BBC Asian Network.

To date Amber’s performed over 200 live shows, which have steadily built from local shows to small Festivals the likes of Megamix Festival (1600 Girl Guides), performed at the World famous, The Shard (she became the first acoustic performer to play the Open Deck) and her own sold-out headline show at Chequer Mead Theatre in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Given the Covid lockdown and continued lack of live this summer, Amber T has, like all artists, seen all her live bookings cancelled including  three major festival main stage bookings. To combat this she has performed selected live streams for various events.

These included LIVE NATION, LIVE NATION MIDDLE EAST which has gained her an additional audience outside of the UK, with Germany, USA and Scandinavia all streaming her music. Amber also performed for, GIRLGUIDING UK, CAMDEN LIVE and SO LIVE SESSIONS. “No Company” was recorded with Amber T with a full band in tow again, the result is this brilliantly produced indie/pop song, which like “Jigsaw” will hopefully see support from an assortment of genres. Amber describes the song as “a sassy feel good track about being your best and knowing your self worth”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
