Amber’s debut single ‘Tick Tock’, was recorded with producer Dr Zeus, and released when Amber was just 15.  The video notched up over 1.5 Million views on Youtube in the first 24 hours.

Amber said: ‘Wow, what an honour and a fantastic opportunity to be chosen as the youngest ever YML Ambassador.  I think I was born with music pumping through my veins, it’s my biggest passion.  I can’t wait to undertake the next year as a YML Ambassador; let’s make music come alive.”
