Born in New York City, but was “shipped to the Dominican Republic for good behavior”. While living in the island she quickly learned music would take front row-center in her life. It would go before any of other passions.
Amnel began cultivating her stage presence and confidence while touring the DR with Disco Town, a disco and funk band. Touring quickly became one of her fascinations. Not only did it give her a chance to display her vocal talents, but she was able to use her music to break boundaries and empower listeners from all backgrounds.
With a very eclectic sound, Amnel’s music transcends specific genres. She has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Dominican Rock giant Tony Almont and legendary house music vocalist Mj White. Both whom have been incredible inspiration to her throughout the years. She continues to reveal her talents, through live performances, to those unfamiliar with her sound. She has performed at New York City’s renowned party - I’ll House You - developed and curated by Oscar P.
But, in her words: Performing at the 2012 Winter Music Conference’s Women Man the Decks and Foundations was beyond words. This is where she gained certainty her heart belong to this genre.
This thing of beauty called House Music.
