Watch out for YouTube’s Soul R&B Artist am1r

Aamir Shahid, is better known by his performing name “am1r” is an R&B Artist, producer and songwriter from Toronto, Canada.

am1r grew up in a very musical home where his mom taught him to play the piano when he was just nine years old.  It was around that same time that he found out he had an ability to sing.  Later, during his teen years, he found his love for R&B music and was greatly influenced by artists like Usher, Boy II Men, Craig David, Marques Houston and a lot more.

Then in early 2013, while he was busy producing and writing for local artists, am1r decided that he wanted to focus on his artistry.  It was at that point that he set up a YouTube channel, a SoundCloud page and focused on covering popular songs in his succulent R&B style.  By covering popular songs, am1r was able to showcase not only his vocal performance but also his production skills.  Fast forward to the present day and has amassed a combined total of more than 5 million hits from his covers and originals.

With his fanbase continually growing, am1r is determined to make a long career by contribution value to the genre he loves so much – R&B.
