The story of Amilli sounds as if it were concocted by music biz executives: As a child, Amelie Flörke is told by her best friend that she sings really well, after which she records a few songs with friends in a self-built basement studio. When she posts the first song on SoundCloud, it becomes an instant hit, not only in Germany, where she wins the 1Live crown 2018 for »Rarri«, but internationally as well. In the USA, the Bochum native is even mentioned in the same breath as Billie Eilish. This is mainly due to her soulful voice with which she sings songs about compassion and against materialism to warm harmonies and danceable beats. Some call it future R&B, others soul pop. Or simply put, beautiful.
