A little update on Amos J

After performing on La Voix, in his home province of Quebec in 2017, Amos J took a step back? You know why? A few reasons really:

One,  making it to the quarter finals on a reality tv show showed him the underbelly of the entertainment industry. He got a lot out of it, and made incredible connections that have allowed him to progress in certain ways. But he also recounts he became somewhat disillusioned with the bizz in general, and that has truly affected him.

Two, he had a second child. The family is slowly growing, from one small child to two, and for those of you who have children, you understand exactly what that can entail. 

But Amos J is starting to come out of his shell and reconnect with why he always loved music to begin with. Stay tuned for many more dates and many more videos and songs soon enough. Summer of 2018 is upon us, and so too is Amos J... Upon us. 

Yeah, Amos J blogs a bit

A statement that came bumbling out of my mouth one day while in conversation with a fellow…Read more

Originality 

I've thought about writing music, and when I try hard, nothing comes. When I let it flow, it all happens. I pick up my guitar, start singing, start flowing, stop judging, start listening, write run-on sentences and voila! Music! Music is fun, music depressing, music feels unlike what you expect it to almost every time. That's how you know it's alive, and you're just constantly developing a relationship with it. It surprises you. It shows you what's up inside. Originality is a bitch, because it tells you…Read more

New, beginnings, difdkljf and spellcheck 

I play music, I like to sing, and I like to get people into the things that I'm into. Pretty simple. ldfjdlkj Just checking. There is indeed a little red line under that nonsense. But really, I have a love of writing; not just songs, but that kind of stream of consciousness blabber that I do just as I'm falling asleep, and I'm in that kind of half dream, half awake state. The kind of rambling I do with friends when we're just not in a damn rush. You're my friend. It's as simple as that. If you take the time…Read more
