Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Sauer.
Amber Sauer, born in San Diego, spent most of her growing up in small town Paradise, Ca. Seeking to follow her dreams, she moved to Los Angeles in 2009 and has been working in the entertainment industry professionally for ten years. She has worked as a background vocalist, and has been hired for the likes of Natalie Cole, Angie Stone, Nik West, Faith Evans,& Kelly Price! She has also worked consistently with major television networks such as BET and NBC.
Amber has worked on national commercial campaigns with Sensa as well as Ford. Most recently she aired on NBC during Season 14s’ The Voice. Amber has also had the opportunity to work with different plus size clothing brands as a Curve Model and Brand Ambassador! In 2014, she began to work with Bslade (Producer/ Singer/ Songwriter formerly known as Tonex), and celebrated a multimedia release of her debut single entitled “That’s Ok(Self Talk)”! There have been several features on popular blogs and the single is continually gaining notoriety. Since that time, she has released two Christmas songs, as well as a new single, titled “All My Help” in November of 2019!
Being adopted, Amber learned the value of family and how to fight for what you believe in at an early age. Though many tests & trials, such as battling heath issues have come, Amber has continuously fought for the purpose she believes is deep inside her to sing and be a light to others. It is no secret that this silly girl likes to have fun, so she has learned the value of balancing a healthy ambitious drive coupled with enjoying the journey. Amber hopes that through her story, music and future endeavors, she can inspire others to believe in themselves and to chase their purpose. She believes that it doesn’t matter where you came from, how much you had or didn’t have; that through hard work and dedication you can achieve anything you set your mind to. This is her life’s purpose.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I believe strongly that art imitates life, so I encourage myself and anyone around me to live and create in their truth. It is there that we find true healing and masterful pieces of art. The human soul wants to connect to something. We are always reaching out and hoping to find something that will have the answers for us. I believe that with music and art, you can tap into the depths of your soul that may have been covered up or not ready to be seen, and therefore cultivate the the answers we are so desperately seeking about life. I strive to live in this and work in this everyday. I believe strongly that if I chase my purpose, the rest will have no choice but align with me.
How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
As an artist, I am constantly judging my creative process. Sometimes this is healthy, and sometimes maybe not so much. I lean on wisdom and intuition to balance these scales. Currently, I am performing six nights a week on an island in South Korea and I am reminded nightly why I do what I do. At the resort I am performing at, there is always young kids coming to the show, and they are so excited to see us. The joy they have to listen to music, and watch us perform is more pure than any other I have witnessed. I define my own success by their faces. The faces of kids that I can hopefully inspire to be great at whatever they want to do. I define my success not by materialistic items or trophies but rather by the way I feel about myself when I lay my head down at night. Success starts first within. If I can feel good about what I do everyday, it has no choice but to spill over to my choices in my career, especially if I am making those cognitive good choices. Success to me is defined by whether or not I have walked in my purpose and fulfilled my calling in life. Being authentically myself is a success in and of itself, especially living in a world that most times wears rose-colored glasses. I love to inspire, create, and be a light of encouragement to those around me. If I am doing this, I am successful, regardless of status, money, or notoriety. As an artist, for true longevity in this business, it is important that you define success for yourself. However, you need a deeper understanding of what you’re really supposed to be doing here, and why you were called to it. Everything happens for a reason, and we find success when we discover that, and live authentically in it.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
People can listen to my art on all platforms online where you stream or purchase music. I am working on a book where people will have the opportunity to feel my heart and maybe heal their own in the process. I will have links to that as soon as they are available. People can visit my website for updates at www.ambersauer.com
I also have a YouTube where people can subscribe to be the first notified when I release anything on that platform. www.youtube.com/
