AhmniMay is a lyrical singer/rapper/songwriter duo consisting of two sisters, Ahmni Love and May that are known for their genetically blended harmonies and soulful sound.
Their sound is refreshing and bound to give goosebumps to anyone who listens.
They are vocally inspired by artists such as Beyonce, Andre 3000, Lauryn Hill, and 90’s girl groups like SWV, 702, and TLC.
They are originally from Colorado Springs and moved to California in the summer of 2011 to pursue their dreams.
Their lifetime goal is to inspire and touch everyone that comes across their music and establish their own music business in the near future. A heartfelt and genuine experience is what you can expect when they perform live!!!
Discuss your recording experience with your producer.
We’ve worked with a lot of producers throughout Los Angeles and they all have brought great qualities to the table in order to make good music with us.
On this particular project, we worked with four different producers.
Discuss what comes first and last while creating a song.
We usually start out by choosing a beat we can hear our vocals on and then write to the vibe we feel at the moment.
Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist.
Be open-minded with all the experiences you will come across on your journey.
There is no clear-cut way of making music and being successful.
Discuss your worst experience in the music business.
Miscommunication between us and individuals we are working with and no transparency in the intention of others.
Tell us how you deal with rejection.
We keep pushing ahead. More no’s means we are getting closer!
Tell us what you are doing to impact people around you.
We are creating inspiration for other artists to keep going on their path despite the setbacks that occur on the way.
Tell us the music that makes you happy.
Music that we can feel and vibe to – Also when we hear a song and can connect to the lyrics and what the artist /artists are trying to portray in the song.
Tell us how you make instrumentation to your song.
We usually go hunting for existing beats from beatmakers or beatmakers will send us beats and we will write to the ones we like.
Tell us how you feel when you sing and your fans sing along to your song.
It’s a great feeling because we know that people are connecting to our song and enjoy the art that we were made to do on this earth!
Tell us the goals you aim to achieve when creating a song.
We want to make music that people can feel and relate to. We hope to help people with our words and passion.
Tell us your approach to writing.
Sometimes we will write an entire song in one sitting and sometimes we will get ideas and take notes overtime until the ideas become a song.
Tell us how you plan to develop a unique music style.
We do not compare ourselves to others which inevitably makes a person unique.
Tell us how to record a song.
If you are recording from your home studio, which is the place we usually record, you have to buy the recording software (i.e. Pro Tools) and a microphone.
After you make the purchases, you just open up the software, press record, and sing into the microphone.
Another option is to link up with a producer or find a recording studio in your area and use the equipment provided there to record your song.
Tell us if you are collaborating with other songwriters or you write alone.
We have a few songs where we collaborated with other artists but for the most part, it is just us.
Discuss your experience with fans.
Our fans will send us touching messages and that inspires us to keep doing what we love. We could not do this music without the fans!
Tell us your experience of booking gigs and shows.
Most of our shows have been booked through word of mouth and after a performance; a booking agent approaches us with new gigs. Then, this repeats so we keep getting different shows at different venues.
Tell us if you consider a song placement in TV or Film.
We definitely would love for our music to be placed on TV and Film.
Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.
Our name is AhmniMay, which consists of putting our names together (Ahmni Love & May).
The title of our EP is “LoveStill.” The meaning of LoveStill is no matter what others say or do to you, specifically those that have hurt you in some way; it is still YOUR mission to spread love anyway.
