Music has been in Amey St Cyr’s blood her entire life, starting when she provided vocals for several bands in the 1990s, including The Thompson Twins and Baby Ford and was well on the way to a successful music career when fate intervened. Following the birth of her daughter, the arrival of postnatal depression led to her band breaking up, leading to a period of alcohol and drug addiction. Fast forward a few years and Amey is now back with a new EP of uplifting, retro-tinged dance music that contains positive, uplifting message at a time when the world needs it most.
Wild World is a four track EP that delivers what it sets out to; an uplifting, soul infused group of songs with immense danceability. The title track bops its way through a wry look at the ever widening gap between rich and poor in three minutes with Amey’s trademark velvet vocals and a great beat. A great song to belt your heart out to and a super relaxing video too (shot in one take!).
‘Do You Feel It?’ takes us through a chance meeting at a club. Will it be love, romance or just a one night stand? Whatever happens, it sounds a whole lotta fun – in fact, I do feel it, yes! The bouncy, joyous feel moves with us onto the other tracks too, ‘Life’s Too Short (To Be Unhappy)’ and ‘Dance Floor of Freedom‘. The positive thinking of enjoying yourself because life is too short is infectious and is sure to have you up and dancing in no time. ‘Dance Floor of Freedom’ brings us to that goal of most of us at one time or another at the end of a working week – the Friday night dance floor and the freedom from work for the weekend.
Amey says that music has helped her throughout her life and she still believes it has the power to help and inspire people, which is why her message to aspiring musicians is simple: “Don’t give up.”
Wild World was released on April 25 on Kycker Music. Get your copy here.
