The band Amber Smith was formed in 2000 having released 7 albums so far. Apart from Hungarian clubs/festivals, they toured Europe many times, and played Sweden and USA. Their 2006 breakthrough record (”Reprint”) was produced by Cocteau Twins’ legend Robin Guthrie, while the follow-up, 2008’s “Introspective”was mixed by Chris Brown, known for his work with Primal Scream, Muse, Beatles, and the Spice Girls. Their most recent record (”New”) was released in 2017, nominated for yet another Fonogram the following year. Currently they are working on the yet-untitled follow up for a late 2019/ early 2020 release.
