Morning rituals, her addiction to Tetris and which artist she would have as Prime Minister.

West London singer AMA captured the imagination with her debut EP ‘Screenluv’. On the record she illustrated her vocal range, ear for a catchy hook and ability to flow effortlessly over glistening RnB-tinged instrumentals.

With a natural buzz emerging around AMA it’s understandable fans and contemporaries alike are keen to learn more about the young up-and-comer.

We had a quick catch up with AMA to find out her likes, dislikes, habits and aspirations for the future.
