Amos biography

Amos is solo project by Amos Pizzey from United Kingdom.

Amos grew up in West London with four adopted brothers of Afro-Caribbean origin. One bio stated that "At twelve he joined a Sound System team and chatted and sang on the mike..." which is probably very English-English for "he joined a Rap group". Amos Pizzey began his recording career at the tender age of 14, when he appeared on Culture Club's first three singles and debut album. He then moved with his family to New Mexico, but soon returned to London, where he and bassist Cass Lewis formed Dark City. They made one album with producer Stewart Levine, and then broke up. But most people will probably recognize Amos from his vocals on the #1 US single by The Escape Club called Wild Wild West. He also appeared on Boy George's Everything I Own before forming ICE with Zak Starkey.

After ICE, Amos joined the Jesus Loves You tour for 2 years. He then teamed up with childhood friend Dee Vaz, writing and producing material for artists including Eve Gallagher and Jag Deep Singh. Between 1993 and 1995 Amos released a few singles as a solo artist : Sweet Music (a good eurodance track released as vinyl and as maxi-CD under the label Dig It), Only Saw Today/Instant Karma (released in UK under Positiva Records. There was also a promo doublepack containing a Factory Team Mix Remix, a Murder Mix Edit, a Murder Dub Edit, a Cleveland City Club Mix, a Cleveland City Hard Mix, and a Cleveland City Vocal), Let Love Shine and Church Of Freedom (once again a promo vinyl double pack was released. Apart from the mixes of the single, one could find a Quivver's Holy Vocal Mix, a Tinman Radio Edit, a Quivver's Darker Dub, a Rocky & Diesel Dub, a Tinman 12" Vocal Mix, and a Beat Barons Mix). More recently, he teamed up with DJ Jeremy Healy to form Bleachin' (they released tracks such as Comin' Down and Everyone Loves You Everythings Free).

There is apparently a little nifty story concerning the Only Saw Today/Instant Karma release (to which Fabio Serra contributed). Seems Amos took his inspiration for this from the John Lennon tune, adding his own strong antifascist message to John's powerful positivity. An early 12" version caught the attention and support of quite a few UK DJ's. A remix issued by an Italian record label soon hit #1 on the Italian dance & radio charts. It was in the process of being remixed for the UK market, when they received the dreaded "cease & desist" letter from Yoko & BMG Music, stating that Yoko Ono had refused permission to use the chorus from "Instant Karma". Amos gave his old band mate Zak a call, asking for help. Zak called his father, Ringo Starr, who took a listen, liked what he heard, and agreed to call Yoko and plead Amos' case. Remarkably, Yoko agreed to change her mind, and the track was finally able to be released worldwide.

Amos also did remixes for Reel 2 Real (Are You Ready For Some More), Diddy (Give Me Love), George Michael (Star People '97).
