Amira is of Egyptian and Russian descent and has lived in New York City most of her life. She attended LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts, the “Fame” school, for voice and continued her musical studies at University of Miami’s Frost School of Music.
There, she focused in Bruce Hornsby’s Creative American Music Program majoring in music business and songwriting/production. Unfortunately, she encountered severe vocal issues, which forced her to stop singing for two years. With surgery and voice rehabilitation, Amira was able to overcome her vocal issues, graduate, and return to New York City determined to keep pursuing her dream of music.
In 2015, Amira traveled to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, writing and performing in top venues including No Black Tie, Ril’s, and The Bee at Publika. Since moving back to New York City, Amira B is in top form singing up a storm of her powerful, original RnB/Soul, with a hint of Funk. She’s been compared to artists like Joss Stone, Leona Lewis, Amy Winehouse, Beverley Knight, and Corinne Bailey Rae.
Amira independently released her debut album "Defined" on June 16th, 2017, which is available everywhere.
