Amethyst Band


Created in 2012 by vocalist and Raquel Rivera, Amethyst has brings together six of Boston's up-and-coming young musicians for a unique and anticipated project. The six-piece group delivers an eclectic mix of Rivera's originals and collaborative new arrangements of covers from artists such as Kimbra and Taylor Eigsti. These contrasts are typical of the group's material, which effortlessly combines pop, jazz, and Latin influences to create a magnetic characteristic sound.
