Los Angeles’ AHMORE—comprised of Venus, Patrick Joseph, and Kyu Malik, a combination of singers, instrumentalists, and producers—came together in 2018 after years of releasing solo projects to create a collective that draws on each individual’s strengths. With a penchant for writing infectious music and relatable narratives, the group presents a fresh new perspective with a distinctive blend of styles including contemporary R&B and baroque pop.
They are driven by a desire to “connect to a plethora of different listeners from all walks of life, by making the music and telling the stories that we would want to hear.”
