Amaroun has a reputation for creating strong melodies with simple beats accompanied by scrupulous lyrical honesty. As a self-proclaimed emo kid of the noughties and a lover of many genres from Gospel to Grime & Hip Hop to Reggae, Amaroun is not easily categorised.
With a driving hunger to release music, and prolific writing prowess, Amaroun (aka Jay Brown) is releasing music each month throughout 2020. January saw the self-produced and genre bending track ‘Perish’ with the honey-like ‘Rosey’ following four weeks later. Now, March 27th will see the release of ‘Talk’, Amaroun’s third record this year and first full studio recording. ‘Talk’, co-written with Charles Watson (Slowclub) and produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt J/ Matt Corby/ Maricka Hackman) is a song about the moment communication breaks down between two people –– “Whenever I sing this song it takes me back to those moments and makes me realise how important talking is to keep your connection alive” she says. “I have no regrets, I learnt so much about what I wanted from these experiences and use them to inform my own self growth and how I approach the beautiful connections with people I have today”
Amaroun has appeared at The Great Escape, Standon Calling, Liverpool Sound City, Dot To Dot, Hit The North, Live At Leeds, Deer Shed Festival, and Curious Arts Festival, and been played by Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Chris Hawkins (BBC 6 Music), Lal Mattock (BBC Introducing), Amazing Radio and Radio X.
