Biography

Stronger. Since releasing “My name is Amos”, his debut album in 2008, Amos J. has grown leaps and bounds not only as a singer, songwriter, musician, but perhaps most importantly as a performer. He has toured Canada performing for live television audiences, logged well over a thousand gigs, put himself in situations that he knew would inform him and give him the experience he needed to bring his music forward in confidence and style. He has discovered over these last few years, who he really is as an artist and performer.

What sets Amos apart from other musicians is his live performance. While his voice has hints of Martin Sexton's soulful passion and Bobby McFerrin's tonal quality and playfulness, it is as unique as Rod Stewart's. His eclectic and ever-evolving musical style crosses genres a la Peter Gabriel keeping his audience - who have come to expect the unexpected - mesmorized.
