Born in a small village in Russia, she discovered the violin and piano at the age of 4. She progressed rapidly, perhaps unfortunately so. At the age of 6, she was uprooted from her family to be trained as a prodigy in Ukraine. After a life of classical conservatories and academies, as well as international contests in Russia, Ukraine, Germany, and Denmark - she left everything in pursuit of her real passion.
Armed with a one-way ticket to America, she had one bluff. But a tireless soul. She started performing at different New York clubs and cafes - singing, playing the piano and violin.Then one day, she was noticed by Avant-Electro producer Brian Forbes. There was an instant connection, and they immediately began working on the EP that would be called “Enemy Of The People.”
While getting the music and production together, åMBe naturally started writing and directing her own videos, as well as writing and recording live instrumentations for various supporting artists.
åMBe even managed to record an album with the Grammy winning composer and pianist Fernando Otero, during which she appeared as a featured vocalist with her remarkable range and astonishingly high, ethereal singing. This album got nominated for Latin Grammy 2015 (best modern classical album of the year).
åMBe is not another singer songwriter. She is a true musical hybrid and artistic polymath.
Her strong Russian, perhaps even heavy-handed classical background in violin, piano and composition is combined with the modernity of experimental electronics and advanced drums programming. A deeply poetic entity, her unmistakably recognizable voice serves as the best instrument to deliver such organics.
This is what makes åMBe often associated with futuristic, multitalented artists like Bjork, Imogen Heap, James Blake, FKA Twigs.., though with a strong voice that is her own unique polyhedral Universe.
“Let it be just like is has to be, Let it kill as tender as I feel, Let it sweep me over one more time, Let it be the sweetest of your crimes.”
She has come a long way, but can only go much further.
