NYC-based Berklee graduate Hunter Blair Ambrose is well-versed in the universe of pop music.
Working alongside Grammy-award-winning musicians and producers such as Narada Michael Walden as an in-house songwriter and studio vocalist at Tarpan Studios, Ambrose was immersed in the industry by the age of 17.
Following her departure from Berklee, from 2017 through 2019, Ambrose wrote and produced her debut EP, Scorpio Rising, featuring her hit single “November”. Artistically shaped by her love for New York City, 2010s alternative R&B, and synth-pop, much of Ambrose’s inspiration is derived from artists such as Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, and Kim Petras.
This tasteful marriage of pop and R&B blossoms on “Right Now”, which dropped last Friday (October 22nd). With a sultry, house-pop sound similar to Ava Max and Dua Lipa, “Right Now” is an intoxicating tune that says goodbye to summer and hello to cuffing season. It’s all about lust and infatuation, sounding like something off Lady Gaga’s Chromatica.
Ambrose’s freshest single, “Psycho Summer”, officially hit streaming services today, October 29th. With lush synths and a trap hi-hat beat, this one is a bit eerier and mellowed-out, just in time for your Halloween house parties. It’s haunting and melancholy, yet maintains the sweet seductiveness of its R&B influences.
Both of these singles precede Ambrose’s debut album, Scorpio Season, which is slated for an early November release. About her upcoming release, Ambrose says, “It features all of the highlights of my career so far and is seventeen tracks in total. I’m so proud of it.”
Whether you’re hosting a costume party to “Psycho Summer” or staying in with your significant other and queueing “Right Now,” Ambrose has all the infectious ingredients to declare herself an upcoming sensation in pop music.
