Self described "Soulful Siren" Stelle Amor is turning up the heat with her sultry new single "Spike's Groove". The Nashville-based "soul-ternative" singer debuted the track last week on Atwood Magazine. "Spike's Groove" starts out soft with a seductive, jazzy feel, which pulses and grows until it finally crescendos over in an ecstatic bluesy guitar solo.
"Rocking a jaw-dropping voice and a classy, nostalgic vibe, Stelle Amor entrances with warm licks and teasing croons that promise to get even the tamest blood boiling." - Atwood Magazine
"Spike's Groove" is the second single from Stelle Amor's upcoming debut EP, following up "Get Right" which was released last November. Her EP will be available in May of 2017. "Spike's Groove" is now available on all digital platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, and Apple Music.
"My guitar player Derek came to me with the riff one day and I fell in love with its jazzy influence. This song is meant to be vibey and sensual. It's talking about being consumed in a relationship, addicted to love and lost in its cycle. The verses take you through the different times in a relationship - from the effortless flow, to the fear of dependence, back to the pleasure the connection brings. The scatting in the chorus represents the nonsensical part of it all, recognizing how crazy being in love actually is." - Stelle Amor

ABOUT STELLE AMOR: Stelle Amor has a mission to "serenade the world," inspiring people through her music and spreading the message of love and unity.
Stelle's introduction to music came from her parents playing classic rock, blues, and country albums in their home. She began writing around the same time other kids were learning to ride a bike. In addition to performing her songs at small venues in Louisville, Stelle would sneak into Stevie Ray's Blues Bar (she was only 18) and sit in with the band, improvising lyrics and singing the blues. "Singing with those blues bands is when I realized my true calling as an artist and performer," she says. These encounters led her to a connection with Music Row veteran John Dorris, who urged her to move to Nashville to pursue music.
In 2015, Stelle met her producer, Dave Yarema, and her guitar player, Derek Toa, and really started finding her "soulternative" sound. Derek called up his old roommates from Berklee, drummer John Wood and bassist Will Cafaro, and the magic happened instantaneously. "I have been lucky to work with a lot of talented musicians - but there is just something undeniable about our vibe together that really brought the music to the next level," says Stelle.
Stelle and her band spent the next several months writing, rehearsing and playing every show they could. Stelle has wooed audiences at countless Nashville venues, was a semi-finalist at Music City Big Break (2016), performed at B.B. King's Tribute Festival at Diamond Pub Concert Hall, and was featured on the TV show "Nashville Entertainment Weekly" as well as the "Women of Substance" podcast.
Stelle Amor's debut EP is set to release in May 2017 and features such Nashville legends such as The McCrary Sisters, Maureen Murphy, Roy Agee, and Vinnie Ciesielski. The first single, "Get Right," and music video were debuted in November 2016. The music video for her second single, "Spike's Groove," will be released in March 2017.
