Born to Rwandan parents, the Belgian artist AMERY fell in love with music while discovering Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean video on MTV. His grandma then got the idea to gift him an African drum that ignited a spark in the heart of the little 5-year-old boy. That flame quickly grew into a fire when he brushed the keys of a piano for the very first time at church. Playing the instrument by ear, he immediately felt driven by the notes.
Breathing music from dawn till dusk, AMERY realised soon enough that he wanted to be heard and gathered his courage to upload a Rihanna cover on Soundcloud which gained many positive reviews, much to his surprise. Learning from the great John Legend, Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, Usher and the like rather than from sitting in a music academy, AMERY perfected his craft, eventually finding his own voice and sound. Upon graduating from high school, he decided to focus exclusively on music with the full support of his mom who witnessed his dedication throughout the years. Determined to find a home for his talent, he actively reached out to recording studios and production teams before crossing paths with W!G Music, where he got a chance to develop as an artist surrounded by a passionate team.
With more than one string to his bow, the 21-year-old well-rounded performer is aiming to wow you with his difference and hopefully, to put a smile on your face.
