It's the time for Amber Mark to shine. The singer just released her debut album Three Dimensions Deep last week, and the promo cycle for the set is kicking into full gear. We fully expect the rising star to be all over our screens in the next few weeks, and she kicks off this feat by gracing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts series with a performance of select songs from the album.
Amber and her band decided to make a New York City restaurant the backdrop for an intimate performance for a few lucky onlookers. The performance opens with "On & On," one of the many introspective songs from the set. This live recreation is almost spot on from what we hear on the album, but with a little more added warmth thanks to the live arrangement. After a quick introduction which reveals that the restaurant is in the building where she grew up, she gets into the slightly funky "Bliss" before taking us into the only non-Three Dimensions Deep song of the set with "Waiting." The song, from her "COVERED-19" series in 2020, is one of her best ballads so far, and she brings the emotion here as well. Her song "Worth It" closes the set, giving us a positive and motivational note to end on while also proving just how bright her star could shine.
It's obvious that Amber Mark is one to watch, and we can't wait to see her continue to grace every screen she can as she gets even deeper.
