All My Friends Are Stars is a multi-ethnic band from New York City. Sound influences are a mix of Fugees, Black Eyed Peas, and Arrested Development; a combination of Hip-Hop, Soul, Pop, Reggae and Acoustic. The name All My Friends Are Stars comes from a concept created by band founder, visionary artist and Am Media Group CEO Americk Lewis who has worked in the entertainment business with the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye West, and T.I., and who coined the phrase All My Friends Are Stars Just Not Famous Yet.. Lewis believes that the friends he has around him are just as talented as any major artist, just maybe lacking some exposure.
The core group consists of four members who are longtime friends of Americk Lewis: Nicholas Sosin, Naiika Sings and Tony Mazz. AMFAS is more than a band, it’s a collective and a movement that consists of a fashion line, a web series, and an annual music festival held in Sweden, which is in it’s 4th year. AMFAS lead singer Naiika Sings’ viral video Rock With You has garnered 14 million views and press from NBC, FOX, CBS, Gothamist, NowThis, and WorldStarHipHop.
Collectively, All My Friends Are Stars has performed at American Folk Art Museum, MoMa, Lincoln Center, Lehman College, and Bologna’s IL Cinema Ritrovato.
Their recent album release If You Wanna Be Famous Spread Love Vol 1.. is available on all platforms.
