From our neighbour New Zealand, Amba Holly is making a name for herself with her sweet and gentle voice, having won the Radio Airplay Song of the Year by a Māori Artist in Te Reo Māori late last year!
We caught up with Amba to see what inspires her and her music!
If your music was a person, what would their personality be like? Do you have any character that comes to mind?
If my music was a person, their personality would be a very gentle kind. A character that comes to mind would be Nala from the Lion King.
What’s on your music bucket list?
At the moment, it’s to do a tour of the islands sharing my music!
If you had to choose an album title as a quote to live by, which one would it be and why?
Love the life you live, live the life you love. Pretty self explanatory there. It’s what I’m always working towards.
What is the most bizarre moment you’ve experienced during a performance?
The first time people in the crowd sang my song back to me!
If you could perform in a concert with three other musicians/bands of your choosing, who would they be?
- Maisey Rika
What’s on your Spotify playlist at the moment?
A lot of Māori Music actually! And I love it!
If you could talk to your younger self, what advice would you give about the music industry?
Give your best performance every single time because you never know who’s watching and what opportunities might open.
What’s in your gig bag?
- AF140 Hybrid Triple Driver In-Ear Monitors
- AKG Mic
- Sunnies and a whole lotta music!
Why do you use Audiofly IEMs?
So I can give my best performance! And these amazing in-ears allow me to do so!
