Chicago native turned New Yorker, Amatus, is a creative talent with an angelic voice. It was the tragic deaths of her brother, cousin, and roommate to gun violence in the Southside of Chicago that profoundly inspired her artistry and so seamlessly emanates through her debut EP Broken Compass. From sit in sessions with the Roots, Erykah Badu and Common to honing a voice comparable to artists like Little Dragon, Janelle Monae and The Gossip, Amatus creates a haunting, yet spiritual journey through the fusion of R&B, Electronic and Indie Pop sounds. With producing, writing, singing, and instrumentation credits, there is no doubt Amatus is a force to be reckoned with in the music world.
