We had the good fortune of connecting with Sherri Amoure and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sherri, what do you want people to remember about you?
I want to leave this earth and be remembered by my resilience and perseverance. Time and time again in my life there have been people and things I’ve encountered that could’ve cost me my life. Things that would’ve broken any other individual in this world, but through it all, though there were so many times where I wanted to and could have given up, somehow I was still able to stand ten toes down.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
When it comes to my craft and the music that I make, everything that you hear is raw emotion. I write all of my own music and I am 100% independent. I do everything from my own hair and makeup all the way down to shooting and editing my own photoshoots and music videos. I am truly the definition of a one woman army and that is what sets me apart from a lot of other artists and people in general. With that being said, of course it isn’t easy. Handling everything myself causes me a lot of stress but my independence is what makes me me. I struggle with severe major depressive disorder and panic disorder and my outlet has always been my craft. Being genuinely passionate about what I do gives me the drive to conquer my days and to jump over life’s hurdles. I do not do what I do just to look cool or to gain “clout” but simply because this is who I am and that is what sets me apart from others.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I absolutely love LA and I’ve loved it since the very first time I visited! My favorite spots would have to be the beaches at Marina Del Rey and in Malibu. I love being near the ocean, it’s really calming and soothing. As far as places to eat, I fell in love with Hotbox by Wiz Khalifa! The food is so so good, literally anything that you order is going to taste immaculate. Other than that, Los Angeles is a beautiful place to be in in general! I just love the aesthetic.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My dad, the late Robert Matthew Curtis, the man who gave me life and taught me all I know is the person who deserves all the credit for the woman that I am today. He raised me by himself after my mother died from breast cancer when I was a baby. At the end of the day, I’m living for him and my life is a continuance of his legacy.
