Her velvety voice is a familiar one in electronic music, and it’s about time Amba Shepherd’s shows the world her true superstar potential. The Australian songstress’s latest release, Wide Awake & Dreaming, catapults listeners to a honey-dripped deep house heaven. Co-written with Dutch producer Tommy Rocks, the song combines Shepherd’s unmistakable voice with a gentle groove and a pop sensibility, perfect for fans of Duke Dumont and Blonde. Stream the Wide Awake & Dreaming set below.
Since 2010, Shepherd’s surreal vocals have transformed her into an electronic music stunner, with features in high-profile tracks such as Hardwell’s “Apollo” and Paul Oakenfold’s “U Are.” She released her first original track, “Prelude (Rest in Peace),” last year on her own imprint, Superrlativ. Sultry and haunting at the same time, Shepherd’s voice layers effortlessly over any type of electronic beat. Shepherd may have just begun her independent journey, but we already can’t wait for her first full-length release.
