Versatility is a big part of the catalogue, all of which led to 2015 and this year’s mission where releasing several singles has been A.M.’s game plan with the song “All Kinda Ways” which generated 186K listens on his soundcloud page which was a major momentum key gaining listens world wide. Another key track has been “Almost” having also just dropped a video for that two weeks ago you can see here.

I learned to engage with different audiences interacting with people online,” A.M. said. “With people over seas recognizing the music it has been big because Chicago is a competitive market so it helped people here take notice too.”
