Amel Larrieux re-emerged at New York’s SOB’s late last month, on October 27, to remind any and every fan that despite her hiatus, she hasn’t given up on music. In fact, her band now includes her daughters and she’s “working on” a reunion album with Groove Theory. (Mark our words, she said it, herself.)

Amel also talked to HelloBeautiful about using labels to describe music (she’s commonly dubbed “neo-soul,” but doesn’t prefer it), whether or not it’s easier or more difficult to be on an independent label, and what trouble she encountered when recording solo albums.
