Hey World! I’mAndrea Oppanthe newest edition to theGowhere Hip Hopteam. I got a chance to talk toAmel Larrieuxafter her explosive performance Friday (Jan 7th) atThe Shrine. We talked about her life as an independent artist, her love forChicago, and performing at theShrine. She also let me in on a little secret… she is working on a newGroove Theoryalbum with her old band mateBryce Wilson!
For those of you that don’t know, Groove Theory was an R&B/hip hop group from the late 90′s that spun off chart topping jams like “Tell Me” and “It’s Alright”. Amel parted ways with the group back in 1999 to start her own solo project which has proved to be a great success spawning radio hits like “For Real” (Which is also one of my personal favorites). It’s exciting to hear that they will join forces again for another album after 12 years!!
This interview was one of my favorites because Amel Larrieux is so real and down to earth.Cam Be put a creative spin on this one infusing her performance with the interview check it out!! Amel is working on her fourth album Ice Cream Every Day, which will be released sometime this Spring.
