Shock Mama Cherry aka Cherokee ’s early roots were in the heart of Brooklyn and she has been working in and around the music industry working with artists such as Andre 300, Jaheim, Jill Scott, and Dwele.
Amatus entered the music business as an intern during D’Angelo’s ‘Voodoo’ album recording sessions at New York’s most prestigious recording studio, Electric Lady Studios, founded by Jimi Hendrix. During her term, drummer/producer Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson of The Roots recognized her musical talent and encouraged her to begin the process of recording and producing the music that inspired her.
