Amber Navran is a multi-faceted young composer who brings new meaning to the phrase singer songwriter. Originally an instrumentalist, she has been playing saxophone and clarinet for 8 years, and is currently attending the University of Southern California as a Jazz Studies major. While in Los Angeles, she started to explore composition and, what started with one jazz standard, became a long list of original material with influences varying from Iron and Wine, and Ellington, to D'Angelo, and Erykah Badu. Amber strives to come up with innovative harmonies and lyrics, and her jazz background offers a fresh take on different genres, often including rich horn arrangements on top of the musical styling’s of her talented band....
