'G i r l, P i a n o, T r u c k'
Ambre Hammond is a soloist...
A pianist, promoter, speaker, ambassador, adventure seeker and champion of countless charities nationwide, born with an inherent need to network who, when isn’t playing the piano, is generally found surrounded by a flock of either animals, jazz musician’s (some would say the same thing!) or vast quantities of food!
But above all else, Ambre is a serial life/people/nature/animal & music-lover who engages her fans instantly with her own brand of sparkling zest, wit and contagious spirit.
This energy transmits from her heart through to her fingers straight to the keys creating a new brand of ‘super pianist’ quite unlike any other.
You are all invited on the same journey, as Ambre presents music which can move you to tears and at the same time take your breath away with her combination of fiery technical prowess on the piano and an approach to ‘melody’ that has been described as ‘slow-motion honey dripping invitingly on the keys’…
Part of Ambre’s unique & innovative approach to music involves collaboration and combining talents with some of the world’s finest musician’s to create musical fusion of an exquisite nature.
Be entranced as Ambre delves into a tour-de-force musical two-some with either a solo double bass, an accordion, a fusion of contrasting cultures with Indian slide guitar or Didgeridoo, the entrancing fire of gypsy violin, Persian traditional instruments or perhaps the natural beauty of piano and the simplicity of a beautiful voice.
Honoring tradition, embracing the new and cultivating something fresh and unique for those who appreciate music of any genre, Ambre truly fulfills her role as... 'The People's Pianist'
