Bio

Roxana Amed singer-songwriter, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is recognized by audiences and critics alike as one of the most amazing and soulful voices in Argentine music.

Her expertise writing shows a lyrical and musical language that follows the tradition of musicians such as Luis Alberto Spinetta, emblematic figure of the avant garde rock in Argentina, and Joni Mitchell, considering the jazz, folk and rock genres in commited combination with poetic lyrics capable to cross any cultural gap.

Through this unusual and particular mix of such unavoidable qualities as an author and a performer, she became an icon of new music.

After a celebrated career in Argentine jazz, awards winner and nominations as songwriter, with a solid education in Literature and Filmmaking, she built her singular figure to finally deliver her two powerful works, Limbo (2004) and Entremundos (2006), defying the structured rules of a limited market, providing her work international perspectives through the talented artists she worked with, such as Pedro Aznar (ex Pat Metheny Group), with whom she produced her two albums.

Entremundos, considered by Rolling Stone magazine among the 5 top Argentine jazz albums in 2006, also shows Amed recording her own Spanish translated version of Tom Waits´ and Kathleen Brennan´s Georgia Lee, in duo with León Gieco (legendary Argentine artist of Latin America folk/rock music, one of the very first musicians to be produced by Gustabo Santaolalla). With Georgia Lee, and Joni Mitchell´s Amelia, in duo with Pedro Aznar and included on her first album, Amed became the first Spanish spoken artist to record celebrated versions in this language, receiving enthusiastic comments from Mitchell herself for Amelia exquisite rendition.

This original and independent artist, role model for the younger generations claming for new and alternative ways of making music and even to her own contemporary colleagues, changed the concept of the singer songwriter and expanded the borders of jazz songs in her country. Roxana Amed always goes beyond her own limits through her confessional and testimonial lyrics, sustained by her overwhelming musical performances and is destined to represent the best of Argentine music tradition.
