Music has always been the focal point for MC/Producer AMP FIRE. Born in the Central District of Seattle as Ariel Mack Paine, AMP had a very rough start to this life. His mother was brutally murdered by someone close to her when AMP was just 8 months old. Throughout all the struggles AMP stayed grounded by the love of his grandmother and family. Before he could speak AMP was rocking himself to sleep to music being played. He never shared a conversation with his mother but he shared her passion for music and poetry. He channeled this passion into a music career that began in the early 90’s. Local legend Sampson S. taught AMP how to loop and sequence on an Ensoniq EPS sampler. With AMP’s first group Moore Paine Inc. he shared the production duties with group member William “MAD ONE” Henderson Moore. The group released a 6 song EP titled “Chameleon of Styles” with rave reviews. As the group got older it transformed into T.A.F.I.O.S.O. (tight as fuk individuals overcoming serious obstacles) to include more artists and producers coming out of the Central District. AMP developed a close friendship with producer Amos Miller and the two have produced, engineered, and wrote over 200 songs with various artists creating the 1st compilation District L.U.V. in 1998. AMPFIRE has performed in over 100 shows and local events including Bumbershoot, Umojafest, and Festival Sundiata. In 2007 AMP FIRE released “Black Evergreen” Fire International/Grizzly Entertainment. AMP was also busy on the production side working with The Naturals “burning up”, Silas Blak “breathe easy” , “writing rhymes driving” and Tilla Voorhies “Stronger now”. 2009 is AMP FIRE’s breakout year with the releases of AMP FIRE/TILLA VOORHIES as THE HEART FOUNDATION “Living The Dream” and AMP FIRE “The Process”. With an amazing stage show AMP FIRE looks to become one of the greatest that ever did it. “Sky is the Limit” Notorious B.I.G.
