Rising R&B singer Amun will support Joy Crookes on her upcoming UK tour including a Manchester gig at the Deaf Institute in October.
The R&B singer is going against what she considers the typical role stereotype of modern R&B of a woman singing love songs to a man. Instead she goes as hard as any of the guys rapping and casts a wider net than relationships.
Amun cites the influence of the likes of TLC, 112, Lauryn Hill, Biggie and 2Pac, “There was more to the songs back then – so much more depth. People had more important things to talk about. We all have a platform and there are so many consumers: what are you going to teach someone or tell someone. I would like to try and bring some of that back.”
Ashe released her debut EP Separate last year and is currently gearing up to the release of her new EP this Autumn. “I want this new tape to be for the ladies to relate to. Starting off at home, we have lots of female artists, but we don’t have female artists that want to get back at the boys… you know?” she comments.
The release of Separate lead to a deal with RCA imprint Since ’93, home to Fredo, Loski and Serine Karthage. The EP also set up a collaboration with Skrapz on a remix of her track So Cold.
