Stelle Amor, SOS Review
Stelle Amor is a vocalist and songwriter born in Olathe, Kansas, and is on a mission to “serenade the world.” Amor’s blend of alternative pop/rock, soul, jazz, and blues is inspired by Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, and Lana Del Rey. She shines brightest on stage, and her live show is a testament to this as she touches people through her music and spreads the message of love and unity. Nashville Off Beat declared, “Stelle Amor quickly became the life of the party as the whole room turned their eyes to her and then found it impossible to remove them. Her soulful pop/rock style pulled everyone in, leaving them dancing and engaged up until the very end. She even left the stage to dance with the crowd! This is a lady you don’t want to miss seeing live!” Amor has performed in iconic Nashville venues such as Exit/In, 3rd & Lindsley, Mercy Lounge, The Basement, The Basement East, Acme Feed & Seed, The 5 Spot, Bluebird Café, and many other venues throughout the southeast, including Seven Sense Festival and B.B. King Tribute Festival. Amor is now releasing her fourth single, “SOS.”Bottom Line: Amor made her national TV debut on Fox’s “The Four.” As a result, Amor caught the attention of London’s legendary producer Ian Barter. Together they joined with Nashville’s top songwriters to create her most epic recordings yet! “SOS” has solid lyrics combined with a feel-good melody. The lyrics deal with the darkness that excess fun can bring. Amor’s warm vocals sing the opening line, “I got arrested in a church parking lot,” it’s safe to say this story is not lighthearted, but there’s hope in its message – to “keep holding on” and acknowledging the need for aid after “hit(ting) the wall.” Amor sends a statement that it is okay to get help, sh*t happens, and even if it feels hopeless, there’s a way to regain balance if you keep holding on. “SOS” has a catchy melody set to a gentle swaying guitar part. The background vocals off-set the staccato nature of the theme. The rhythmic flow of the phrases is also integral to the melody’s memorability. Amor’s vocal fills before the bridge is excellent. The bridge builds back to the chorus in a solid manner. “SOS” has a balance of rawness and lyrics that encourages people to reflect with a hip pop/rock vibe and Amor’s unique vocal style. That’s the short of it!.
