    Amel has an eclectic look at the world. She almost reminds me of a female rendition of Prince in how she approaches her art form. She doesn’t confine herself to 1 genre which is greatly appreciated like individuals like myself who listen to everything from classical, jazz, hip hop and even anime music. Because of amel I even bought some albums from artists that I am not familiar with such as Towa Tei.

    Interesting blog on her and Towa Tei

    Thank you for an informative interview.

The collaborative fruits of the impossibly attractive, not to mention talented duo of ex-Mantronix producer Bryce Wilson and bohemian songbird Amel Larrieux had been sorely missed since they first hit the scene in the mid-’90s. Besides the odd live date played in Japan, the official comeback is still to properly materialise. I, for one, wait with bated breath. The original GT might have only one studio album and a handful of soundtrack appearances to their name but it is more than enough to appreciate their singular contribution to the ’90s musical landscape. The story goes that Larrieux and Wilson met whilst she was working as a receptionist for Rondor Music publishing company. She was an aspiring singer-songwriter and he was an already established producer looking for a new project. The two brought their collective gifts-and fantastic bone structures-together after Bryce asked Amel to write a song to one of his instrumentals. The rest, as they say, is musical history. […]
