A few years ago when I attended Gypsy Soul's 5th anniversary celebration in Baltimore, I met an amazing array of performers that I have never forgotten. One of these recording artists is Amber Mimz, a woman with a captivating voice and an insane work ethic. Before the event began, I just happened to sit at the table where she was vending her merchandise and her warm demeanor welcomed me into a conversation that made us both quickly realize we had a lot of the same friends and frequented the same spaces. As I watched her perform and got to know her thereafter, its not only her singing ability that kept you intrigued but her business acumen and the manuevers she makes to continue to pursue her dreams. Not only is she managing her career, but she owns and operates multiple businesses centered her artistic abilities. Jewelry design and hair embroidery are just a couple of the things she dabbles her hands in. All of these talents and more will be on display this weekend as she performs live on stage with her band at the Velvet Lounge.
