AMWE is an indie new wave/electronica artist from Nagoya, Japan. Getting her start in jazz cover bands and 80s-styled music groups, she eventually debuted in October 2009, under Pure Groove Records. AMWE produces, writes, and provides the vocals to all of her music. |
Born in 1984, AMWE got her big break when she won the Japanese leg of the Diesel U music competition in 2008. Experimenting with making music on her computer, she was inspired at a gig with Swedish artist JUVELEN and began focusing on a solo career. Getting more exposed, the French electronic music label Kitsuné Music invited her to remix a song and gave her the chance to appear on one of their compilation albums, “Kitsuné Maison 8,” with her song “Friction Between The Lovers”.
AMWE has drawn comparisons to artists such as pop artist Robyn, French duo Daft Punk and Japanese electro singer immi.
