"My Mya Moe tenor ukulele sounds amazing. I'm enamored by it's consistency and great playability. I've been using it on my new recordings and every time I pull it out of the case someone goes 'oooh, what kind of ukulele is THAT!'"
With the release of Future Sons & Daughters French electronic pop duo AIR, French chanteuse Charlotte Gainsbourg and legendary Brazilian icon Caetano Veloso all handpicked AM to support them on various U.S. and International tours in 2010. The album, which was produced by Charles Newman (whose long relationship with the Magnetic Fields produced Realism and 69 Love Songs), brought AM considerable acclaim with what Q Magazine described as 'a rare talent, juggling everything from steamy tropicalia, to acoustic ballads, to shimmering '70's pop' and Spin described as 'distinctive melodic swagger.' Future Sons & Daughters was also named one of Rough Trade's 'Top 100 Best Albums of 2010'.
Already hard at work on a follow up to Future Sons & Daughters AM has partnered with London based groove master Shawn Lee on a new full length album to be released in May 2011 with plans for a limited edition hand numbered 12-inch single to be released in April. The as-yet-unnamed album, and the first-ever collaboration between AM and Lee, promises to push the boundaries of soul, pop, electronica and Latin grooves.
