Amarie Proctor, was born and raised in Savannah, GA. She had always been into music ever since she was in elementary school. She first learned how to play the flute and piano in elementary school. Growing up, her dad would always play music around the house. He'd listen to artist like Tevin Campbell, BoysIIMen, Toni Braxton, Jon B, Bobby Brown, + more, even GO-GO music since he was born and raised in Washington DC. That kinda of sound attracted her, and helped to morph her into the artist she is today.
Some songs were hard hitting and others were more soft and sentimental. She loved that, she enjoyed that balance of music. Her dad would always insist that she freestyle over GO-GO beats and she never would because she was too nervous. Instead she'd go into her room and rap over J.Cole Type beats. One of her first freestyles ever was written over a J.Cole type beat in 2018. Check it out here.
2017 to 2019 were some of the most easy years to Amarie's Artist career because it was the very beginning. Meaning no pressure for her. She didn't have any insight of the correct way to make music, or the industry standards we'll say. She did and said exactly what she wanted to, being 1,000% herself with nothing around to disturb that. Making her completely unorthodox.
Around this time Amarie had evolved when pertaining to her sound. She has a few different styles and flows that came naturally to her. One of them stood out the most to her and was pushed to the forefront. It was her natural way to come onto a track, every track, so she stuck with the grasphy, low toned style naturally. The tone of her performance voice stemmed from how her voice sounds when she's stoned. It also always adds shock factor when people see her vs hearing her. Its like oil and water, but it fits for her specifically.
From 2021 until on, Amarie had signed a publishing deal back in 2021 of August. She had signed the deal with BEATROOT. She has done her first across the country performance in Marquette, MI at the @Freshstartradio showcase, "SNOW STOPPERS". Without any official music releases, Amarie performed her songs DEAF and MENCACE and won the crowd over. She had won the Grand Prize, and earned the praise from people she had never seen before. She is currently nominated from Savannah's Best Hip-Hop/Rap Artist.
