Amo Amo formed in June 2017 when a group of dear friends — Omar Velasco, Love Femme, Justin Flint, Shane Mckillop and Alex Siegel — got together for an impromptu session in Los Angeles with Jim James (My Morning Jacket). There had been a premonition that the five of them shared a sort of psychic bond that would lead to a revelation in sound. James proved the right ferryman to take them across the creative river to where the revelatory, mystic moment awaited. Five months later, after a month-long recording retreat with Jim in an old house in central California’s countryside, Amo Amo emerged with a collection of songs full of soul and magic.
In the past year, the world has begun to fall under the spell of Amo Amo’s magical sound. Legendary mastering engineer Bob Ludwig says “I really love these songs, they are stand outs of the past year for me… Amo Amo has made a very special album.” Jenny Eliscu (Rolling Stone, Sirius XM) says “Rarely do I come across a new band with as strong a sense of self-identity as Amo Amo… their live show is ecstatic.”Both KCRW and KCSN, Los Angeles’ tastemaker radio stations, have played Amo Amo’s first two singles in heavy rotation, and they’ve racked up over 500,000 plays on Spotify in only a few months. And speaking of their live show, Amo Amo has been making waves — opening for the likes of Poolside, Jonathan Wilson, and Tropicalia legends Os Mutantes. You will not see a crowd stand still at an Amo Amo show: people dance, it can’t be helped.
Amo Amo is set to release their debut album, produced by Jim James, this spring and will support on his upcoming tour as well as opening up for My Morning Jacket at Red Rocks this August. They are not to be missed.
Salami Rose Joe Louis is a multi-instrumentalist female producer from California and a recent signee to Flying Lotus’s independent label Brainfeeder. Drawing influences from jazz, soul, hip-hop, Shuggie Otis, Captain Beefheart, Stereolab, and R. Stevie Moore, she creates a blend of experimental dreamy sounds with jazz influenced vocals and piano. She recently released her debut album on Brainfeeder “Zdenka 2080”, a conceptual sci-fi album that has been described as a “stunning interdimensional travel themed new album” by Gigwise. She also had the amazing honor of joining Flying Lotus’ 35 show, Flamagra Tour this summer and earlier in the year she joined Cinematic Orchestra’s European tour and Toro y Moi’s “Outer Peace Tour”. After a couple years of touring as a singer/instrumentalist with other bands and collabing with groups such as Bizarre Ride (Pharcyde), Dj Numark, and Starro, a bandmate gave her an MV8800, catalyzing a deep dive into the production world, self recording and mixing her albums on the MV, “Son of a Sauce”, “Zlaty Sauce Nephew”, and “Zdenka 2080”. Drawing from her studies in planetary sciences, she creates a celestial experience filled with space inspired sounds and galaxy chords:) Hope you enjoy!
