FERVOR FESTIVAL: Winnie Ama

Book Tickets (Seated Only)

 

We are delighted to kick off our Fervor Music Fridays with BBC Introducing 2022 ‘Future Headliner’ and ‘One to Watch’ WINNIE AMA!

The Belfast born and raised Northern-Irish-Ghanaian artist has had success with multiple MusicWeek UK Club Chart top 10’s and support from, RTE2FM, FM104, BBC Radio Ulster with BBC Introducing referencing her fresh writing style and distinctive voice.

Winnie Ama’s writing style is inspired by Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse. She switched from writing poetry and stories to writing music. Then she studied jazz vocals before making her commercial music debut in 2019 writing 3 songs in collaboration with Francis Groove that made the top 10 in MusicWeek’s UK Urban/Black Club Chart – Can’t Wait #1, I Swear #7 and Born to Win #6. She also appeared in Photo Vogue in 2019. Her solo debut ‘What Are We’ was in MusicWeek’s Black Club Chart for 6 weeks, peaking at number 11.

”She gives off the impression of an artist in gracious control.” Belfast Telegraph

‘’Hypnotic alternative RnB, Northern Irish-Ghanaian artist Winnie Ama is just getting started but already seems like an accomplished musician.’’

Ones to watch 2022 number 31 – Belfast Live
