We had the good fortune of connecting with Amiel and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amiel, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I’m born and raised in Broward County, Florida. Lauderhill to be specific. I come from a family that was based on love but heavily involved in the streets. Lost a lot when I was young and I feel that’s what made me who I am today. I’m able to overcome certain situations that the next man would fold to. It was a blessing in disguise.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’ve been doing music for the last few years of my life and if I had to say what I feel sets me apart from other artist is the fact that my music is honest and is filled with real emotions. I touch on my losses, my downfalls, family and just what got me to this point. I’ll make you feel like you know me. Life isn’t easy but at the same time I’ve experienced so much that I know how to keep going. Biggest lesson I’ve learned in life is to find something you love to do and never lose it. My message to the world is don’t quit. Times get hard but the minute you give up it’s over. Mass Vibes Production’s (MVP) started from the bottom now were on our way.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My bestfriend is from the town so he knows his way around. But a couple go to places around here are Hardrock Casino, Ft. Lauderdale Beach, maybe Las Olas on a club vibe. Or we’d head down to Wynwood in Miami and check out the clubs they also have a sex museum if that’s what you’re into.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d give a shoutout to my mom for never giving up on me. Not necessarily in just music but life. She is and always has been my go to person whenever I needed someone to talk to. I’d also give a shoutout to my late homie, mentor, just one of the guys in my life that believed in me, Radar. He passed away mid 2020 and I keep his name alive in everything I do. Miss you homie
