Star Amerasu is a multi disciplinary artist. Her music and video work have been featured in many publications including The Fader, Out Magazine, Paper Magazine, Them, I-D, Billboard Magazine and KQED Arts to name a few.
She creates indie electronic music under the moniker Ah-Mer-Ah-Su and her debut full length album "Star" Released in 2018 was voted Top 20 LGBT albums of that year by Billboard Music. Her voice though its own unique timbre has been compared to Nina Simone, her sound in a world of it own. Released following her two critically acclaimed EP's ("Eclipsing" and "Rebecca"), her debut album, 'Star' is a coming of age story where she examines the idea of "womanhood" while practicing self-compassion and self-forgiveness regarding the trauma that transwomen tend to experience in today's society. With her earlier work being influenced primarily by folk and choral music, Ah-Mer-Ah-Su worked closely with indie producer Vice Cooler and club hit maker davOmakesbeats to create an album of electronic positive, genuine club anthems that speak to anyone who has ever felt like an outsider in our patriarchal society. In fall of 2019 she released her EP of Orchestral works titled "Incandescent Body" which features orchestral versions of songs starting from her first release "Eclipsing" to her most recent release "Star". These works arranged with Minna Choi of Magik*Magik* Orchestra, are an emotional trip through memories of her youth.
