The Group

Created in the fall of 2012 by vocalist and composer

Raquel Rivera, Amethyst has brought together six of

Boston’s up-and-coming young musicians for a unique

and anticipated new project. The members of Amethyst have joined their love of contemporary jazz, acoustic pop, and various latin genres with undeniable skill and taste. The unique voice of each member enriches improvisational arcs throughout every performance. Featuring Rivera’s originals, as well as collaborative cover arrangements, this group delivers accessible interpretations of human feeling.
