About Amali Ward

Music for your soul.

Influenced by the Motown era, Amali's music is timeless, but this isn't just a throwback to something you've heard before. Amali's charismatic vocals and witty lyrical style are undoubtedly her own. Tongue firmly in cheek, Amali's music doesn't take itself too seriously - no gimmicks or pretension - it's just good.

At just 17, Amali released a self-written/produced independent EP, which saw her play Bluesfest, the Southern Roots festival and support slots for US group Naturally 7, The Bamboos and Paris Wells.

She spent the next few years honing her songwriting chops, writing in the US with Jack Splash (Cee Lo Green, Estelle, John Legend), Cri$tyle (Rihanna, Beyonce), and Warryn Campbell (Alicia Keys, Kanye West), before eventually returning to Australia to finish writing her debut album with longtime collaborator, keyboardist and songwriter Beau Golden.

Even before its release, Amali's debut album received not one but two songwriting accolades: a prestigious Lennon Award win in the international John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and the Stephen Schwartz Songwriting Award, handed out as part of the APRA PDAs (previous PDA winners have included the likes of Gotye). In 2012, she was invited to support UK superstar Seal as part of his Australian Soul 2 Tour, and feature on triple j favourite Dr Don Don's infectious track 'Good Thing'.

Recorded in Los Angeles, produced by David Ryan Harris (India.Arie, John Mayer) and backed by heavyweight US session musicians, the entirely self-written/co-written debut 'Back In Time', was released in May 2013, with Amali embarking on a national tour in June.
