North-London native Ama Lou graces the fourth cover of Notion 84 and talks writing her own story, sneaking into open mic nights and embracing the unknown.

Starring on the fourth cover of our Summer 2019 issue, Notion 84, is the R&B prodigy Ama Lou. Moving from North London to LA back in 2017, Ama Lou has been making moves since she was a 12-year-old girl in Stoke Newington. We got to grips with the girl on everyone’s radar. Defining the exact moment that led her down the path of songwriting, singing and now on the verge of something extraordinary. Wearing her heart on her sleeve in a relaxed and tender way, Ama Lou tells us tales of sneaking in London’s open mic nights, not caring about the bullshit as she had her guitar, letting go of control and entering the great unknown. One thing’s for sure, the great unknown looks pretty bright for the girl doing things her own way.
