About Amare

Amare Symoné, is a singer-songwriter, artivist, and performer that is California born, Brooklyn bred, and a London transplant. She began singing when she was just a child, and throughout schooling, she gained knowledge in the background of music. From middle to  high school Amare studied opera, contemporary voice, jazz, gospel, and poetry.  Symoné experiments with sound through instruments such as voice, ukulele, looping and keyboard. She has also sung music in seven languages thus far in her career, and is 1/2 of a Neo-Soul Hip Hop duo, theinjuredparty.

After moving from California to Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, New York, Amare found herself surrounded by art. She traveled frequently around the world because her parents, Mahogany L. Browne and Jive Poetic constantly toured being that they are poets/writers and activists. She currently attends Columbia College Chicago, and is pursuing a Bachelor’s of the Arts degree in Music Business & Entrepreneurship.

Amare released her first-ever solo project, GlassWindows EP via These Days, and she is currently working on her latest EP, “Hello Heathrow” to-be-released in early 2018. Inspired and influenced by Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Charlottle Dos Santos, Nina Simone, Etta James and Eryn Allen Kane, Amare has found joy in live stage performances while at venues such as: Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Madison Square Garden, Summer Stage NYC, The Metro Chicago, SoHo House Chicago,  Young Chicago Authors,  Da Poetry Lounge and House of Poets. She has been featured on the #LTAB2016 and #LTAB2017 Mixtape, Twitter Mixtape: The Spring Experiment 2016, and blogs such as VIBE Magazine, AFROPUNK, These Days News and Elevator Magazine and is a 2016 recipient of Converse Rubber Tracks.
