A Gerrards Cross musician is set for the gig of his life when he plays at Glastonbury later this month.

AMiR, whose music has clocked up approximately 300k streams on Spotify, will appear on the BBC Introducing Stage during the festival on June 30.

Born in North London, AMiR has always had a burning passion for music, starting originally with the drums before learning both the guitar and piano.

His music is similar to that of Trey Songz, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars.

Speaking to The Metro newspaper, Amir opened up about wanting to represent people in the industry who do not conform to the "perceived ideas of British Asian artists".

He said: “The pressure in the industry of having to cater to “British Asian standards” just doesn’t sit well with me. The Asian Network have helped me get that message across. I’m lucky with my family as they have never pressured me to be something I’m not.

“But it’s not the same for some of my friends. They have to service the family name before they can be happy, which ultimately messes us all up.”
