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 six-piece group
delivers an eclectic mix of Rivera’s originals, as
well as collaborative new arrangements of covers
from artists such as Kimbra and Taylor Eigsti.
Such contrasts are typical of the group’s mate
rial, which effortlessly combines pop, jazz
, and latin influences to create a magnetic characteristic sound.
Amethyst is looking forward to releasing their EP ' Something About Evergreens '
this February and will perform their material in
Boston and New York in the Spring.
