20-year-old Amber Fieldgate is petite, shy and timid, but not to be underestimated. The aspiring singer is bold, brave and fiercely independent – the perfect formula for success.
As a young girl, Amber was involved in the school choir, as well as drama and was awarded drama honours in her matric year (2015). This comes after numerous achievements in her field over the years, including a cultural scholarship to St Stithians College. She was nominated Best Director at the FEDA festival, but despite her highly developed acting skills, music is still her first love.
In 2015, she joined The Buzz singing group, opening for the international best-selling music group MiCasa at NickFest SA. The year after, she went into studio with A&R for America’s Got Talent, Nate Butler, and recorded her first original title ‘One More Try’.
Currently studying a BA General at TUKS, Amber is on the straight and narrow, getting her ducks in a row before tackling the big bad world of entertainment. In the interim, she has joined the TUKS Serenade A Capella singing group.
Not confined by genre, Amber’s record collection ranges from pop and rock to indie heartfelt ballads, and her hope is to continue challenging the norm and amalgamating different genres and sounds to create her personal brand of her own.
Last year, Amber was chosen as the official opening act for Gavin Edwards at the Bryanston Country Club Sunset Concerts.
