Progressive Soul Mondays: Slept On Artist — Amel Larrieux

Amel Larrieux was born the only child of an interracial couple in New York City’s Greenwich Village.  In 1991, she met Bryce Wilson of the group Mantronix. Larrieux and Wilson began making demos together and eventually formed the group Groove Theory.  Amel left the group in 1999 to pursue her solo career and has since released four albums.  Enjoy!

  1. Great pick, Desiree! Amel’s first solo release Infinite Possibilities is one of my favorite albums of all time and “For Real” is one of the best tracks from the Bravebird album.
