Textures of a Southern Soul
“Turnin pain into Purpose. Mysery into Music. Lyrics into Lessons.”
Textures of a Southern Soul was cooked like a good pot of collard greens and cornbread. Inspired by my Culture, it is about Family, Food, Gardens, Land, Water, Ancestral Mathematics, Self Love, Acknowledging the Pain and Healing, Home, Time Travel through Memory, Portals to Escape, Elixirs made from Laughter and Love, Indigo and the true Carolina Gold of my home South Carolina. Special Recognition goes to Summerton, Souf Cak where I was I born, St. Helena Island, SC where I was re-born, Walterboro, SC where my creativity was given a space to bloom and Washington DC the place that gave birth to my husband Andre aka Mr. BounceBack, home of Go-Go and where I spent many family vacations visiting my up-top family.
Music has always inspired Change and shifted the World. The positive end of the spectrum is my wheelhouse and so I wish that a continuum of good vibes will penetrate your SouL as you listen to my new music.
All of the Music was created and cultivated by my husband, Andre "Mr. BounceBack" Amiger. He is a synesthete 3X Stroke Survivor. Each song has a different feel and footprint that gives life to the different textures of my being and my soul.
I (we) hope you enjoy.

Textures of a Southern Soul (TOASS) is a curriculum based album designed to engage and excite the listener. It is also an introduction to a next level collaborative artistry between husband and wife team Andre & Mahoganëë Amiger. Mahoganëë set out on a musical journey to learn more about her family lineage, heritage and culture. This album is birthed from Mahoganëë growing up in rural South Carolina with the soul, blues, jazz influence and Andre growing up in DC with a strong live band go-go influence (funk, R & B) and now coupled with visits to Trinidad, Tobago, Cuba and Belize that added to the musical recipe.
