Ammoye effortlessly glides from Reggae and Dancehall to Gospel
This now multi-award-winning artist started out her career while living with her grandparents in Clarendon, Jamaica, finding solace from life’s trials and tribulations by singing in her local church choir. After choir practice, she would regale the neighborhood with her latest songs and poems from the top of the mango tree in her backyard.
Reggae and Dancehall to Gospel, Soul and R&B
3 JUNO nominations and the 2015 Reggae Exclusive Recognition Awards.
Toronto-by-way-of-Jamaica reggae artist Ammoye has a lot riding on her latest release, The Light. The Juno-nominated singer-songwriter deals in a traditional yet future-forward reggae sound — with R&B and Gospel influences — and recently overcame some health-related issues that put an emerging career on hold. The Light is her return, and a solidly produced one at that.
Running at 19 tracks, there is a lot to parse here, but the bulk of it has replay value. The standout "Outta Town" maintains an old-school rocksteady feel — equal parts smooth, raucous and vibrant — while "Soul Rebel" delivers an authentic dubwise mentality wrapped in an empowerment ethos that speaks well-worn yet worthy lyrics: "You have the authority / So stand up in solidarity."
Her 2016 release, “Sorry,” produced by Jamaica’s famed producer Kirk ‘Kirkledove’ Bennett, has been a radio favorite in Canada which boosted support for the songs nomination.

Named after the Italian word for Love, Ammoye is to music what the stars are to the sky – beautiful. The smoothness of her voice draws listeners in, and the power of her lyrics holds them as she effortlessly sings about Life, Love, and justice. At the age of 5, Ammoye knew her calling was to perform music.
