Amer’s music is raw, lyrical, experimental and still modern. Exploring the
issues and mentality of his generation; suffering from drug abuse, violence
and mental illness, is a recurring theme in his songs. Even though the themes
are heavy in a way, the lyrics and the flow are straightforward and playful
with a message that is hopeful.

host workshops in poetry as well motivational lectures at youth detention
centers, companies and in schools.
