Note from the Artist:
As the Spoken Word artist Amanyia, I have transitioned back to using my birth name (Camilla).
Being a writer, co-writer, composer, lyricist, producer, mixer, editor, arranger, videographer, photographer, engineer, and graphic stylist; I was being all I could possibly be, wearing many hats to make my Home Made CD.
I was amazed, at what was coming from me,
The passion made it flow so easily.
It seemed effortless at times,
To write and make my words rhyme.
My inspirations are from LIFE, FAMILY, FRIENDS, and many
diversified lyrical poets, and musical blends.
When writing this bio, I could not help but realized that, I am a Independent artist, making my way through a jungle of amazement.
I have accomplished what I set out to do, and have gained experience from it. I hope that my listeners will feel my passion, and check out my Home made CD, and hopefully it will makes its way on radio or TV.
