Bio

Mike Kenny Ambroise, better known by his stage name “Ambro” was born on December 21st, 1991 in Miami, Florida. His young unwed parents parted ways in 1994, causing Ambro's mother to leave Miami with him and his older brother to start a new life in Boston, Massachusetts. They soon settled in one of Boston’s rougher neighborhoods, Mattapan. Throughout elementary and middle school, Ambro was constantly getting in trouble for being disobedient, argumentative, and mostly fighting despite being academically inclined. These behavioral issues escalated with faculty, eventually Ambro's trouble following school rules evolved into troubles abiding by the law. Though never convicted, having numerous close calls was enough to convince Ambro’s mother to move to Weymouth, MA in hopes that separating him from the negative influences he had grown up around will help offset, what seemed to be, a path of self destruction.

 His relocation seemed to have helped, seeing that Ambro wasn’t getting into as many altercations. However, he still seemed uninterested by the idea of school as he continued to underperform. This led to him dropping out and eventually earning his GED. It was in 2008 where Ambro started gaining interest in music and began rapping. He even attended his first competition two years later hosted by Clinton Sparks. He came in second place out of sixteen other contestants. Despite missing first place this was a huge confidence boost for him. Landing in second place gave Ambro ten hours of free studio time, which he took advantage of and recored his first three songs. Ambro attended Massbay Community College, where he continued to disregard school and shifted his attention towards music. Ultimately Ambro decided to quit school for good. While playing his songs aloud on campus he grabbed the attention of a listener who immediately booked him for his first show at Keene State College. The show was a success. Since then Ambro has become known as a surefire crowd pleaser at open mic events and has continuously teased the public with snippets and covers.

Ambro's decision to leave school wasn't in vein, he used this time off to educate himself on video production, graphic design, and photography. He co-directs and edits all of his own media. Ambro hopes to have control over his presentation throughout his career. Ambro has currently recorded his first body of work, an EP titled “Something For Everybody”, which is scheduled to drop June 27th. The EP will be available online for free download, physical copies will be released on USB wristbands and will contain additional content for fans as Ambro looks to produce a game changing debut.
