“Introducing to the stage Ama Jones!” Don’t be surprised if you hear that sentence from your T.V screens in the near future. You’re most likely thinking “Who the hell is that?” well if you don’t know now mark my words you soon will! Ama is an incredible singer who will soon be hot property by a lot of people, she really has a raw gift that blessed my ears as someone sent me her SoundCloud. I wanted to know the person behind the voice, the personality, the human being that she is because for me any artist who I follow or like must have a good persona that attracts me to them & this usually this reflects on their music. I was able to actually speak to Ama & just get to know here a little, so I asked her some questions & she responded with some very interesting, funny, honest answers.
How would you describe your sound?
I guess I would describe my sound as floaty, spacey, electronic sort of new RnB. I am also trying to bring more energy to my music.
Who would you compare yourself too for those who maybe haven’t heard of you?
That’s a really tricky question and I know this sounds very cliche, but I’m really just trying to be the best version of me and not like any of my peers. Well within music, previously I have been compared to the likes of Jorja Smith but I think that’s because we both have British accents and are light skin ahaha, Erykah Badu is an artist who in the future I would like to be compared to in terms of longevity as she continues to stay relevant and true to herself.
What can we expect coming from you?
Well, I have actually been recording my own songs since the age of 15, for almost two years now and initially I was just using beats that my sister made, taking instrumentals from the internet and a few were being sent to me by producers, those are all the songs that are up on my SoundCloud. But this past year it has all been from scratch… it’s been a bit of a trial and error year, I’ve been figuring out what I like, what I don’t like and the production I actually want. I have been working alongside producers to make the music/sound that I actually want, some of it with a lot less mellow than the things I am currently posting and in the new year you will get to hear and hopefully like.
Who is the real Ama Jones?
I feel like my music is quite transparent like I’m not trying to be anything I’m not, I’m even trying to showcase my personality in it more. But the real me I guess is a bubbly young lady who loves to try and make people laugh (as you can see in that mad pose above lol) and spread joy, who thinks about music pretty much 24/7, also is trying to spend less time with her phone, plus trying to relax with eating so much food and I can’t wait to finish education and focus solely on music.
I’m so excited to see where the music game is gonna take Ama, she has a voice that i know one day truly will be very influential, I think what I was more excited by was the way she is as a person. Along with her talented voice & great personality, you can see she has high ambitions for herself and LoudBeat will be backing her every step of the way… Welcome to the LoudBeat family… LB signing out
