So, today I have the pleasure of introducing you to a young lady, who is keeping the spirit of true R&B alive. She goes by the name of Amina Bryant, and she's very good!
Think Elle Varner meets Solange, and throw in some fiesty edge and you have Amina. It's been a while since an R&B artist has impressed me this much! Amina was kind enough to answer some questions for us so you can get to know her a little better, so, here we go!
Hey Amina, could you tell us a bit about who you are and what you do?
I'm a singer songwriter from London, I started creative writing and poetry as a child and then developed into songwriting in my teens, I also co-produce alot of my music with long term creative partner WhiZzK!D.
How would you describe your sound?
I'm obsessed with 90's RnB so I have a lot of layered vocals and harmonies, I like to create a certain vibe usually mid tempo with a dark feel and laid back vocals. I tend to write about my own experiences so a lot of the songs are very personal to me. I like to have tracks that you can put on and dance around your bedroom to and ones you can chill out to.
Who would you compare yourself to in the industry right now?
I don't think there is anyone that I can say I'd compare myself to, but I do love songwriters like Miguel, Frank Ocean, Jhene Aiko and Drake.
So, what can people expect if they come down to one of your shows?
A stripped back performance, so you can really hear the songs and appreciate the melody, I also like to through in some interesting covers now and again just to mix things up.
What's your favorite song you have written?
That's a really tough question, there's a song on my E.P called Dinosaur which I'm excited for people to hear and also the first track I put out "Jimmy" just because it started this whole process and has become a kind of anthem for me.
And finally where can your fans (or new fans) find you?
I'd like to thank Amina for taking the time to answer these questions!
As most people who know me even a little will know, I have a strong passion for R&B. The past few years has seen something of a resurgence in proper R&B becoming rather successful, such as some of the acts Amina mentioned (Miguel & Frank Ocean etc.) and I genuinely think Amina could follow this trend. I'm hoping for the best for Amina!
