Growing is an essential part of life, and that’s a message that Dallas-based singer and rapper Amore Bey conveys in every one of his songs. After facing deep losses, Bey is using the hard life lessons he’s learned to plant seeds of wisdom into his art, while planting literal seeds in his one-acre-and-growing property.
In addition to making music, Bey is also a gardener. A life-long love of gardening is what inspired Bey’s most recent EP, Seeds of Love, which was released earlier this year.
“The state of the world right now is pretty chaotic, so I wanted to use the music to plant seeds of love and harmony,” Bey says. “The music can be a getaway, like my garden is the place where I go to escape — it’s therapeutic to me.”
Amore Bey was born to put pen to pad. “Been making tunes since I was in mama’s womb,” he spits at the beginning of “Seeds of Love,” the title track of his latest project of the same name. The Texas-based artist’s relationship with the mic scans as therapeutic; his words flow through producer Tao Bey’s warm guitar-based loop like butter melting onto freshly cut biscuits. Amore spends the song counting the blessings of existence: “Don’t look outside yourself for nothing / It’s all inside, baby, when you feel that heart bumpin’.” Planting the seeds of love proves to be relative. In Amore’s eyes, the ability to sit by the water and reflect on your thoughts is the greatest gift of all. – Dylan Green from Dj Booth
Talented musician Amore Bey has released a brand new EP titled Seeds Of Love. The rapper and singer has released a soulful, mesmeric new project features some introspective raps about inner growth, manifesting his own definition of success in a potent, poetic way. The production on this 4-track EP is colourful, with synths and guitar leads that add texture and soul to the music. His sung vocals bring a lot of life and beauty to the project too, showing his range as a vocalist. The meditative energy on tracks like “Deeply Rooted” and “Seeds Of Love” are examples of what I’m talking about – they are smooth, soulful, beautifully arranged. The tribal and fast-paced energy on “Thru Da Fire” is great too, while “Almost Home x Amaru Almighty13” bring the project to a reflective end. I definitely recommend you check him out! – Martin Boev

1) We’d like congratulate you on your new single. Rebirth. It’s a powerful song. Explain what its about?
AMORE BEY: I started writing rebirth back in September. The song was inspired by my daughter Zayah Blossom & her mom Huna. Zayah passed away on March 4th 2019 and our whole reality was shattered. We were living out in California & shortly after we relocated back to Texas. It felt like all the old had burned away & we were given the opportunity to start fresh. Amaru Almighty 13 the producer had sent me this beat 2 years ago and after a few listens the words “purification, cleanse this nation!” started to come out. Rebirth for me musically was the introduction to my new beginnings. With faith in the most highs we have the ability to overcome any hardship.
2) Your music is such a great mood for many including us, we love how fruitful and rich it is. For those who are new to you how would you describe your sound ?
AMORE BEY: I would say it’s authentic, rooted, soulful, harmonious with some tribal influences. Im always trying to expand my range so the sound is always evolving.
3) we believe the world deserves more artists like yourself. With your music who were your influences growing up?
AMORE BEY: I grew up in the south some of my most earliest memories are from when I was younger on the weekends at my grandpa house he would be cooking, dancing & playing music all day he was listening to BB King, Earth Wind & Fire, Al Green, Marvin Gaye a lot of the oldies. My mama had Whitney Houston, Sade, Anita Baker & D Angelo in rotation around the house on Saturday mornings. I got into rap a lil later. My favorite artist that influenced the sound I’m making now comes from Lauryn Hill, Bob Marley, Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) Big Krit & My Uncle Qua
4) You’re one of the exciting artists on Starseed Records we love what you’re all doing. With your music what impact would you want to make?
AMORE BEY: With the current state of the world. I strive to plant seeds of righteousness & elevate the minds of our people. Everybody’s hurting out here due to the lack of faith in the most highs. So my music will fill that void, the listeners will start to focus inwardly & let go of all false things that no longer serves them. I just want for our people to be themselves & be happy!!!
5) if you had a chance to work with any artist dead or alive on an album who would they be and why?
AMORE BEY: A collab album with Lauryn Hill would be to fire I seen her play live back in 2016 & how she pours into the music is really inspirational & healing. After that night I started to take my approach to music more serious.
6) Last of all what can we expect from Amore Bey. A new EP or maybe an album?
AMORE BEY: There will be some more singles released in the spring & my debut studio album will be coming summer 2020!! Appreciate y’all
