Bio

Music for your soul. 
Influenced by the Motown era, Amali’s music is timeless, drawing inspiration from old school legends like Stevie Wonder to contemporary counterparts such as Cee Lo Green and Amy Winehouse.

The single is taken from debut album ‘Back In Time’, produced by super musician and producer, David Ryan Harris (John Mayer, Guy Sebastian, Lupe Fiasco), due out on May 3 2013 through MGM/Precious Records.

This is a really nice remix built on dreamy atmospherics and some nice vocal manipulation - it just breezes right through your ears. Only problem is once it hits its stride it's gone too quickly.
