Biography
The dream started at the age of five when he saw Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton perform live on television. Fueled by the musicality of his late grandmother, Amaru soon became fascinated by music. Singing around the house was part of his daily ‘routine’ as a youngster and while he was adamant that he was going to be a singer, his mother on the other hand was also adamant: “You’d better go to school and get a degree”, she said! And so he did, but when the family moved to Europe from South America, that’s when Amaru decided to pursue his true passion. It would take many years before his first musical release, but the table was set…!

Watching Denzel Washington, his favorite actor, on television, propelled Amaru to take acting lessons and oddly enough it was the acting that took off before the music. He studied in Los Angeles and in Amsterdam and he has managed to build quite an acting resumé since 1996. From film, television and commercials to print ads and voice over work, Amaru has done it all but the music kept ‘calling’.

Cut to 2007 when Amaru traveled to Chicago to work on an EP that generated the release of his debut single ‘Put Your Hands Up’ in 2008 and the accompanying music video. While the EP didn’t fare too well, Amaru did manage to get some airplay for the music video on television. In the meantime, he was still booking acting gigs, which kept him away from the music, yet again.

The date is August 2014… Amaru decided to grab to bull by the horns and he went into the studio to work on some new music. The fruits of his labor generated the single ‘I’m The One You Need’, a synth driven club track which is released in late January of 2015 on Amaru’s own label AMARU MUSIC. ‘I’m The One You Need’ is released as a double A-side single, featuring the ‘Radio Edit’ and the ‘Spanglish Mix’, the latter especially dedicated to and in honor of Amaru’s South American roots.

“Don’t take my absence for inactivity”, Amaru says. “Being an independent artist is a full time job and if you don’t hear from me, it means that I’m busy working on my next artistic endeavor”.

Amaru’s new CD single ‘I’m The One You Need’ is available on his website and his digital releases are available on CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon.com and many other retailers of digital music.
