Wrap you ears around BECKAH AMANI
Beckah Amani is one of the freshest voices to emerge in a very long time. This Gold Coast based singer/songwriter melds the best parts of soul, pop, RnB and alt-folk and combines them with rich lyrics to create deep, multi layered and thought provoking songs.
2020 saw Beckah release the thought provoking and reflective track STANDARDS. Written at the height of the Black Lives Matter protests in June, “Standards” continues an important conversation on racism and experiences of people of colour. “Standards” reflects on white privilege and the weight of baring black skin, looking different and coming from a different place.
“STANDARDS” caught the attention of many including Double J who highlighted it as one of the best tracks added to Double J”, Declan Byrne from Triple J stated Beckah’s “voice needs to be heard by millions” and superstar Tones and I personally got in touch with Beckah. Tones and I went on to place STANDARDS in her Instagram-based competition That One Song where it finished as a finalist.
There are many exciting things to look forward to from Beckah in the coming months. You can catch her supporting Busby Marou on Thursday the 12th and Friday the 13th of November at The Triffid Brisbane and Saturday November 28th supporting Sahara Beck at HOTA Gold Coast where you will hear songs from her upcoming LP “Settling Scores”. Beckah is deep into the recording of her debut album in a Gold Coast studio with Producer JWISA and engineer/mixer Guy Cooper rounding out the creative team.
