After releasing her debut single “Old Soul” to acclaim, Amahla was awarded the PRS Lynsey De Paul Prize for outstanding female songwriters. She also rounded 2018 as a recipient of the second ever MOBO Awards X Help Musicians fund for her exceptional voice. Amahla entered 2019 playing full sets at The Jazz Cafe, Royal Albert Hall in addition to selling out her first headline show at the Roundhouse as she released her first project. Her debut EP ‘Consider This’ demonstrated a storytelling ability long beyond her years, exploring issues of Domestic Violence, Race and Class and inner city life. It’s a culturally important release, with an undeniably talented songwriter at its core.
She possesses the vocal ability to knock your ears clean off your head..but instead puts all the focus and effort into the subject matter, using her singing ability as a vehicle for her stories” – Earmilk
Amahla was long-listed in this year's Glastonbury Emerging Artist Competition, hit venue capacity for both her sets at this year's The Great Escape festival and headlined St Pancras Old Church on May 15th.
Amahla is currently recording new music for release this Summer.
