About AMBER DIRKS
Vocal powerhouse AMBER DIRKS was born in Holland and raised in New York City. While still in her teens, AMBER decided to leave the bright lights of New York City and head out west in search of fame and fortune. It wasn ¡t long before her strong, rip the roof off vocal style whisked her through the door and the professional singing career she had always dreamed of had finally begun.
AMBER'S cross-country gamble paid off in the studios of Phoenix and Los Angeles, where she quickly began working for several hit-making producers including Richard Shear (Stephanie Mills, Brenda K. Starr) and Nick Trevesick (5 Star). Her considerable vocal skills impressed producers and remix masters R.K. Jackson (CeCe Peniston) and Marcus Schulz, who eagerly recruited AMBER as the vocalist on the Plastik Records release "Do You Want Me". AMBER was also a featured vocalist on Motown recording artist Eddie Minninfield's Christmas album.
AMBER has provided backing vocals for an array of notable entertainers including Roberta Flack, KC & The Sunshine Band and A&M recording artist Malaika. As a Guest Vocalist of the classic group Sister Sledge, AMBER has traveled extensively in the US and abroad, performing in front of tens of thousands of adoring fans. With Sister Sledge, AMBER has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the music industry's premiere recording artists including Gladys Knight, Michael Bublé, Destinys Child, Macy Gray, Martha Wash (C&C Music Factory & The Weather Girls) and Chic. AMBER'S musical experience also includes a lengthy tour of South America with Latin recording sensation Raphael. With Sister Sledge, AMBER appeared at the "Disco Fever to Race to Erase MS 2006" and along with superstar Natalie Cole, helped kick off the Grand Finale, "Lean On Me". After hearing AMBER lead off the second verse, industry legend David Foster singled out AMBER'S voice for praise.
AMBER has also appeared on BET, VH1 and has sung the National Anthem at numerous major televised sporting events. Her exotic blend of talent and beauty won her a spot as a former Miss Black USA finalist representing the state of Arizona.
Some of AMBER'S earliest influences growing up were the soulful stylings of strong female artists including Whitney Houston, Anita Baker, Toni Braxton, Etta James, Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin.
AMBER has also contributed vocals on upcoming projects by artists including Heathrow Project and Joni Sledge (Sister Sledge), and on a remake of the mid-90’s dance hit “Sweet Dreams” by LaBouche. AMBER’S strong, smoky vocals on Sweet Dreams 2007, on the German-based Fahrenheit-Music, bring a new 21st century flavor to the classic dance track.
Amber's most recent releases are "Rejoice" (Bill Friar Entertainment 2008), Standing Up (Bill Friar Entertainment (2009) and will soon be releasing "Feel The Love" (Bill Friar Entertainment 2009)
AMBER continues to prove without a doubt that with a combination of talent, drive and determination, sweet dreams really do come true.

```````````````````````````` Glad to see “Rejoice” getting the attention that it deserves. It is definitely a winner on my dance floor. Total Fun! Looking forward to more from DJ JST & Amber Dirks. (D.J., 1/7/2009 see all my reviews >> )
Rejoice indeed, nice one. From the disco house Refex mix to the old school, big room gospel-ized DJ JST mix it's time to rejoice! (J.C., 12/14/2008 see all my reviews >> )
Wow...Amber dirks has such powerful vocals...reminds me of the "Old School" divas of dance. The original and remix productions are very solid. A really good package. Nice to see a DJ play an instrument. DJ JST does a solid job with the violin in his mixes. Definitely worth a listen. (M.D., 12/12/2008 see all my reviews >> )
a re-invention of gospel house with a sexy spin. JST's electric violin adds mystery, Amber's vocals are seductive and hot. simple lyrics, but catchy. my very picky dancefloor likes this one. (J.T., 11/18/2008 see all my reviews >> )
I definitely like this song and all the mixes. I especially like the church bells & the violin that are in the DJ JST Symphony Club & Dub Mixes. They add such a different element (and subtle surprises) to the song. Not to mention Amber Dirks' "Take 'em to church" vocals...Wow! What a great collaboration. Don’t get me wrong, I really like Reflex’s groove (IMO, very Freemasons). I think Reflex's mix will definitely work well for radio, but damn there is something about the bells and violin that werk me! (D.J., 10/16/2008 see all my reviews >> )
Good song!! The DJ JST Symphony Club and Dub are the best. (Yecin, 10/16/2008 see all my reviews >> )

Excellent release. Love the Electrik Pulse mixes. Fierce dancefloor devastation. -Jamie J Sanchez Billboard Reporter dj.producer.remixer San Francisco
I liked this song instantly! "Day In Time" has "hit song" written all over it! It also has strong pop crossover appeal. I enjoy the vocals and lyrics too!

Here's a hot new project by a new label to Starfleet, Power 2 Move, "Without You" (Remixes) on Groove Passion/Dirks Kidz Music. This is a hot little Club/House flavored batch of remixes, which are done by Jake Benson. Good production & the female vocals give it an Urban House feel in places. This should work well in the right clubs & parties. Radio could follow or actually SHOULD follow. We look forward to working this project around the world.
Captain Kirk "
Very, very Cool!
Such a profession feel. The quality and passion for mucic is obvious. Stunning vocal's, first class beat, drive and groove.
Remind's me of Roger Sanchez - the quality and originality is all there.
What more can I say? This is 10/10 - and has all the hallmark's of a club hit...well done, well done!
- deccole from Brisbane, Australia on 16Apr2008
Haha finally I hear something really good. The beat is very catchy and the singer has a nyce voice on the track. Produced well on the track nyce job great sound. Love the melody!!
- DJSmooth4Lyfe from Colesville, Maryland on 12Apr2008
Yes Yes - a pro
From the first beat i knew this would be a well rounded track. Great production. Awesome mixdown.
The vocals sound great. Really nicely placed in the mix and the backing vocals are perfectly levelled. I love it when i get pro tracks to review.
Nice pads. Very subtle but add an edge to the track. Much underated is the pad.
This is a really cool track. Very well produced. Not cheesey at all which is quite an achievement for the genre. Good track.
