Ameriie Wedding Pics & Talks Of New Album

In Ameriie, Weddings on July 17, 2011 at 6:29 pm
The newly married R&B powerhouse, Ameriie shared “I Do’s” with longtime boyfriend and former Columbia Records executive, Lenny Nicholson on June 25th. The 30 year old beauty wore a custom made couture Monique Lhullier gown for what was called her dream wedding in Anguilla. 

Now, fresh off exchanging her nuptials,  Ameriie heads back into the studio as she gets ready to release her fifth studio album “Cymatika Vol. 1” expected to be available Spring 2012. She recently revealed exclusive details on the making of “Cymatika Vol. 1” with Billboard.com’s The Juice.  See excerpts from the interview plus some wedding pics inside.

On the core genre of the album:
“Trance and electronic. 80’s new wave, but not in the sense of the sound, particularly, but more so the song structures themselves. I really wanted to try different things. Even with vocal approach, some of the songs my sister listened to and she didn’t even know it was me. I wanted to experiment with androgyny.”

Teaming with the right producers:
” I’ve worked really closely are Andre Harris, of Dre & Vidal but has branched off to do his own thing. He did probably a majority of [the album]. He and his team really captured what I wanted and what I really wanted to go for with the project. I also worked with Riley Urick who is just an awesome, awesome producer.”

On some of the songs from the new album:
“There’s a song called “Run For Cover.” It’s kind of like a metaphor [for] self suppression. We’re suppressing who we really are or our ideas. We’re truly not living 100% authentically with ourselves and representing ourselves to the world as who we really are. We’re always running. But we’re not running from someone else, we’re really running from ourselves.”

There’s another song I wrote called “Sodom and G,” like Sodom and Gomorrah. The song on the surface is about a broken relationship. It’s destroyed. I compare that to the fiery destruction the city of Sodom and Gomorrah [faced]. I used the biblical story as an example as far as looking back that, I’m looking back at everything I left behind.

Her new single “Firestarter” will be out this summer!
