I heard a pretty much straight jazz track by Amel on KLON-FM. It had a refrain about smoking and drinking and it was just her voice, piano, drums and bass. Does anyone know the title?

Does anyone happen to have the lyrics to, or be able to provide a link to Amel's collaboration with Mondo Grosso titled, "Now You Know Better"?

Please help! Thanks! ^_^

Hello all! I am new to the community! I absolutely LOVE Amel Larrieux. I play "Infinite Possibilities" at least twice a week. My favorite song is "Searching For My Soul." You can check out my LJ and see my Amel Layout. I hope to post here often and see some activity here.

Im a 23-yr old Chemistry undergrad.  And to be honest, I consider myself to be culturally very white and dreadfully square.  I mean I can totally  find Jurassic Five offensive at times. My favorite rapper is MC Solaar cuz I cant tell it when he's cussing.  But when I discovered the video to Amel's single "get up" on BET like 6 years ago in a bout of channel flipping, I was totally hooked.  I subscribe to here mailing list and listen to her stuff on    giantstep records.  This definately proves that Ms. Larrieux has something, cuz she's the only one to expand my narrow mind on the whole soulternative r&b thing!  More LJ's & peeps ought to listen to her, the music scene would be so much better!.

I just came across this community and I just had to join.

I've been a huge fan of Amel since her Groove Theory days. She's my favorite artist of all time, and I love her work. She's so amazingly talented and brilliant!

I'm so glad I found a community here about her! Wooohoooooo!

Can't wait to talk to you guys!

Hey, everyone. I just joined this group and wanted to say hey. I live in Tokyo, and I was able to see Amel Larrieux perform in April and once in May. Hearing her live was everything I thought it'd be and more. Her voice is serene and spiritual like a angel's. We also had the chance to talk to her a little bit after the choice.

I've been an avid fan of Amel's music since the Groove Theory days and have bought any CD/track she's participated in(Sweetback, Soulive, Stanley Clark, Mondo Grosso,etc.)because I'll always be safe knowing that any song by her is A quality. Sony should be ashamed of themselves for not giving her the necessary promotion for her album. That's showbiz for you...they're only about the $$, quantity over quality, you know? I agree, she is underrated.
Anyhow, looking forward to talkin w/ all of yall.

P.S. Did you know that there is a Yahoo Group about Amel Larrieux? In case you didn't, here's the URL.

eeep! I'm so excited that there is an Amel Larrieux community!! She is definitely a diamond in the rough. Obviously she deserves more credit & if they market her right... she could be really big. I'm kinda a selfish fan though and like that she is still small and a "real" artist that I like, not the whole world.


This genre of music (whatever you'd call it) doesn't get a whole lot of play on the radio between Britney Spears and 50 cent... so I was just wondering if you guys could recommend some of your fav albums along Amel's sound... guys too...

p.s. along with chill stuff like Amel's, I luh-love stuff I can dance to. So if you guys have dance-able soul/hip-hop recommendations I'd love that too!

Thanks so much guys! (oh, and I'm happy to join the community!)

I cannot seem to find her CD anywhere in my area. Im not too surprised about them not having it in VA... but DC or MD should have it definately. I guess Ill just have to look harder or order online (which I hate)

I bought Bravebird on Tuesday (got the last copy at Best Buy... though I doubt they had too many in stock to begin with). So far I like Amel's first solo album better, content-wise. However, I will have to listen to Bravebird a lot more in order to suitably critic it. Anyhow, if you're an Amel fan, you have to buy the new album, nuff said. Keep up the good taste kiddies!

p.s. I'm still waiting to see Amel live = (

On Amazon.com there are new previews to Amelly's new album BraveBird. I tried to get a sampling the other day but it would not let me so I am just giving you guys the heads up. Hopefully this community won't be so dead soon.
