about Amey St. Cyr

Amey was well on her way to a successful career in music in the mid-nineties when fate intervened. After giving birth to her daughter, Amey developed crippling postnatal depression and her band broke up, leading to a period of alcohol and drug addiction. Now free from her illness and addiction, she is able to commit herself to music once again. As well as singing, Amey is also an actor and has appeared in music videos for the likes of Krept & Konan and Big Narstie. She has also recently written and performed a theatrical piece with her daughter Zakia, called Voices Of The Motherland, exploring their relationship and touching upon issues of immigration, race, family and identity.

Amey has had a varied career as a singer, songwriter, actor and model. She has featured in films and music videos, and most recently has been working on a theatrical piece with her daughter Zakia, a documentary about which was produced by Zakia and featured on BBC Radio 4. She was interviewed on Good Morning Britain in 2019 about her role in the Lumen dating app campaign.

Music has been in Amey St Cyr’s blood her entire life. She provided vocals for several bands in the 1990s, including The Thompson Twins and Baby Ford.  

Amey makes uplifting, retro-tinged dance music with a positive message at a time when the world needs it most. A confident, inspirational artist, Amey is currently performing at gigs and open mic nights around London, and is guaranteed to get the dancefloor moving.

Amey St. Cyr also featured on audio deluxe's single '60 seconds' - which made no. 1 on the kiss fm dance chart in 1991

About The Track

Life’s too short is a nu-disco dance anthem whose lyrics encourage us to join in the party of life. It’s uplifting and upbeat sounds lure us into a positive frame of mind lifting our spirits out of the doldrums of Covid 19.

 

The song states that believing in the power of love, putting faith in the human race and taking care of each other will drive away the darkness bringing light and love into our lives. The middle 8 proceeds to tell us It ain’t over till the fat lady sings and that we do not yet know the outcome of an event that’s still in progress. In other words, it’s not over till everything is ok and if everything is not ok it’s not over. We are all special we are all kings and queens and princes and princesses.

 

The positive vibes in the song are irresistible - so do as the song says, lose your inhibitions and sing along with Amey.

lyrics

I believe in the power of love and all the joy it brings

I put my faith in the human race to get it right

Give thanks and praise to the universe for everything

To drive away the darkness we must have light

Life’s too short to be unhappy

Don’t be shy come join the party

Life’s too short to be unhappy

Come on won’t you sing it with me

Despite all the confusion I know that we’ll pull through

I think that things will get better over time

If we take care of each other it’s up to me and you

Can’t always know the Reason or the rhyme

Life’s too short to be unhappy

Don’t be shy come join the party

Life’s too short to be unhappy

Come on won’t you sing it with me

It ain’t over until the fat lady sings

Believe in love and light and all that they bring

Don’t let hate and confusion bring you right down

Coz we are all so special we wear the crown

Life’s too short to be unhappy

Don’t be shy come join the party

Life’s too short to be unhappy

Come on won’t you sing it with me

"Life’s too short (Rework). Amey has had an amazing year. She has been the subject of a Radio 4 documentary produced by her daughter, a regular on my radio and TV shows and is doing great musical work for mental health patients. Her banging House music is the perfect vehicle for her gutsy, rangey voice - deep alto one moment, rising up into soprano range the next. And this song, like all her releases this year, has a killa hook that burrows into the brain. Another winner from Amey."
