It’s a heart-wrenching new single from the artists new project..
21-year old Londoner Amahla, is fast making a name for herself as one of the capitals most revered new soul connoisseurs.
She’s making music with a powerful message. Her tracks “Old Soul” and “Dorothy’s Verses”, explore real life issues in contemporary society. Her EP (Due for release next month) Explores issues of race, societal un-ease, #MeToo and domestic abuse. No more is this more evident than in the new single “Dorothy’s Verses”.
It’s a stunning single, that explores all Amahla’s strongest influences. The track tells the story of her grandmother coping with Alzheimer’s, while also touching on key women’s issues. Amahla states:
“‘Dorothy’s Verses’ is my grandmother’s story of looking at her life through a new lens of Alzheimer’s, but it’s also about the need to hear women speak from their truths. We’re now living through #MeToo, a movement where women are reclaiming their stories and pushing them into our collective memories; this is but just one verse.”
