BIO

Amiel has been playing for over 30 years, and singing and performing professionally for more than 16 years. His original music, via his band at the time, has seen him receive commercial radio airplay as well as support acts such as Rise Against, The Used, The Butterfly Effect and Taxiride. Gigging has been a constant source of income and satisfaction by sticking it to the man by not getting a real job.

In 2016 and 2017 he placed well in the Isabell Menton Choral competition. 

In recent years he has discovered film and stage composing. He was music director/composer for ‘Windscreen Watch’, a 6 episode series that aired on Channel 31 in Melbourne in 2016.

In 2018 he won the commission to compose the SATB finale piece for the inaugural Raise Your Voice Choral Festival in Brisbane, sponsored by Trade and Investment Queensland. The two day event took place in Suncorp Piazza at SouthBank and the choir performing Amiel’s composition consisted of over 300 singers. 

In 2019 he was one of the primary composers for the Charlotte Pitot musical ‘What we leave behind’. 

After seeing ‘The Book of Mormon’ he has decided that writing a musical is something that he would love to accomplish. 

His current project (well...one of..) is an EP titled 'Don't Judge a Musical by its Cover', which consists of songs from musicals done as punk rock covers. It will be released mid 2020.
