The alternative pop scene continues to welcome fresh talent with Amss Badawy releasing her debut single under Nick Lazaro’s new label Eclectic Kiss. Earlier this week, Lazaro’s independent music label dropped its first track, “Dead” by Amss.
On Lazaro’s Instagram he shares a bit of backstory behind discovering and producing Amss for her debut track. Here Amss shares, “It was something very new to me, like a whole different scene from what I was used to…It feels surreal and exciting and completely overwhelming to finally get release, with Nick’s help of course.”

Amss Badawy (@amssbadawy) used to just post videos of herself covering songs with her ukulele. But when Nick listened to her, he heard something more; so much so that he took it upon himself to reach out to her and ask if she’d be willing to collaborate. And that’s when they began working on “Dead”. . “𝘐𝘵 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘦, 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘢 𝘸𝘩𝘰𝘭𝘦 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘴𝘤𝘦𝘯𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰,” Amss states. “𝘐 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘥𝘰 𝘤𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘰𝘯 𝘍𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘣𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘵𝘰 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘷𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘶𝘥𝘥𝘦𝘯𝘭𝘺, 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘳𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨.

She is described by Nick as someone who knows how to use her voice as a weapon. When to be playful with it, and when to play around it. And as a producer, Nick’s goal is to build a bigger, more intricate sound around her music, while still carefully keeping her persona intact. Listen to Amss’ debut single “Dead” on Spotify today.
