Introduced to most of the world in 2005 with the smash single "1 Thing,"triple-threat actress / dancer / singer-songwriter-producer Ameriiecontinues to evolve. As a young girl she lived in a variety of places,including South Korea, Germany, Texas and Alaska due to her father's USmilitary career. Having to constantly adapt to new environments, shedeveloped a very strong sense of self early on. She excelled in school,but also found a creative outlet in writing fiction and music.
Ameriie went on to Georgetown University, where she earned a bachelorsdegree in English and Fine Arts/Design. After securing a record dealshortly after graduation, she released her debut album "All I Have"and, together with 'Richard A. Harrison (I)' , helped steercontemporary R&B away from synthetic sounds through the use of live,aggressive instrumentation and vocalization. Three years later sheturned out "Touch", which solidified her as one of music's mostexciting artists, thanks to the overwhelming success of thego-go-inspired track "1 Thing. " In 2007 she released "Because I LoveIt", which featured the hip-hop electro sound that is still prevalentin pop music today.
After releasing three critically acclaimed albums, Ameriie decided itwas time to reposition herself. In 2008 she parted ways with Sony andco-founded entertainment company Feeniix Rising Entertainment withbusiness partner Lennie Nicholson. "In Love & War", an aggressive mixof trunk rattling hip-hop, raw soul reminiscent of'James Brown (I)' and classic 'Led Zeppelin' -erarock-'n-roll, quickly followed. The singer managed to turn thetumultuous times of past relationships into a moving collection ofsongs which resonate with anyone who has ever been on the wrong side oflove. Ameriie is in the process of recording her latest project, "Cymatika",which she describes as an album that speaks to "the things that driveus.
" Always fusing different musical elements, this time she picks upwhere 2007's "Because I Love It" left off, and adds a heavier dose ofNew Wave, trance and electronica. Ameriie is also working on threebooks: her first fiction novel, a guide book for young girls and teens,and a wedding planning book with celebrity wedding planner TiffanyNieves-Cook, with whom she's been planning her wedding for the pastyear. .
