Ámaris Releases \ Ámaris Wen, artistically known simply as Ámaris, is the London-based recording artist, music producer, actor, and songwriter. Her most recent single “Been Doing This” is a definite ear worm and when asked about her song, Amaris says, “The message of the track is ‘We’ve been doing this for too long’ and is about moving on, and that sometimes you have to let things go and try something new.” “Been Doing This” is her most recent release about not giving up, even if you want to.

Writing under the name A. W. Emersleben, she released her album “Dream World” in 2020, the title track becoming her most successful release to date receiving 100k streams on Spotify alone.

Ámaris received her formal training at drama school in Zurich, with Isabel Kempinski in Voice, and later at the Stage & Musical School in Frankfurt, Germany, where she started to listen to electronic music for her dance studies, which made her discover the genre for herself. Being new to subjects such as Ballet, Jazz Dance, and Modern Dance, Ámaris needed to train in the evenings in her free time to achieve the levels of the other students. She found that her new-found passion for electronic music helped and then started the dance floor project “Geiko– female electronic dance music”

After returning from Germany to Zurich to complete a degree in Business Law, she was able to work as a playlist manager for Sony Music. She later moved to London where she started working on her first more R&B and synthpop-influenced album “Neon Colours”, which was well-received by critics.

As one of few female music producers, Ámaris’ skills in combining genres such as electronica, R&B, and pop have defined her music as being genre-defying. She is very vocal on the protection of the oceans and is an ambassador for the non-profit organization Big Blue Ocean Clean-up, which works on reducing plastic waste in the oceans. Her fantasy story “Lagoona: A Journey through the Reef,” published in 2022, raises awareness for the disappearing coral reefs and ocean pollution.

As an actress, she will appear in a production of the play “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” this year, in which she will play the character of “Elaine”.

Ámaris is currently working on a music documentary ‘On Tape’, in which female and non-binary music producers will answer questions about their work. 10 questions, 10 music producers, no wrong answers! The short form documentary is a collaboration with L.A.-based Maria Corso of female- owned production company Two Foot Five Productions.
