WHO AM I?
Hi, my name’s Ámaris, and I’m an actor, music producer and writer who loves the oceans. I’m bilingual (English and German) as I have family from NZ/UK/Switzerland. If I have time, I love to practice my Archery (Vegetarian-friendly). I love everything underwater, and am an ambassador for Big Blue Ocean Clean-up.
I usually play the character that has already snitched the keys from your pocket while you’re still shaking their hand.

“Amaris sings with this raspiness to her voice that is similar to that of Marina and Paramore.” – indie-music.com

Ámaris Wen (* in Stans, Switzerland) is a recording artist, music producer, actor, and songwriter. Her most recent single “Been Doing This” was released in 2022.
Ámaris grew up in Central Switzerland as the daughter of a teacher and Swiss musician Kurt Baumann, who also worked as a professor for music, which made her come in touch with music from an early age. Her family is from the Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland, and England, which is why she grew up with English, German, and Dutch. After her parents’ divorce, she moved to Zurich where she attended school.
Ámaris received her formal training at drama school in Zurich, with Isabel Kempinski in singing, and later at the Stage & Musical School in Frankfurt, Germany, where she started to listen to electronic music for her dance studies. Being new to subjects such as Ballet, Jazz Dance, and Modern Dance, Ámaris needed to train in the evenings in her free time to achieve the levels of the other students, with which her new-found passion for electronic music helped. Her first album was released in 2014.
After working as a playlist manager for Sony Music, she moved to London where she started working on her album “Neon Colours”, which was well-received by critics. In 2018, she released “Aquamarine”, a full-length album inspired by the oceans, followed by “26”, in 2019. In 2020, Ámaris released the album “Dream World”, with the song “Dream World” receiving 100k streams on Spotify. Dancing about Architecture said about the album that it’s “a wonderful blend of soul and R&B structures, draped in dream-pop textures and far-flung futuristic electronica.”
For the release, Ámaris worked on a few remotely filmed music videos, such as “No Signal” filmed in London and Zurich, “Sunsets”, which was filmed in London and Los Angeles, as well as “Dream World” filmed in Sydney and Zurich, released in 2022. Earlier last year, her retro-futurism inspired single “Time Traveler” was released, which was called “a synthpop sensation” by The Indie Source.
Ámaris’ skills in combining genres such as electronica, R&B, and pop have defined her music as being genre-defying. “Creativity is my fuel,” says Ámaris, “I can rely on it. I’d say that this is probably my actual skill.”
Ámaris is very vocal on the protection of the oceans, and is an ambassador for the non-profit organization Big Blue Ocean Clean-up, which works to reduce plastic waste in the oceans. Her fantasy story ‘Lagoona: A Journey through the Reef’, published in 2022, raises awareness for the disappearing coral reefs and ocean pollution.
