In 1996, four friends from San Sebastian organized a band to play the songs of their favorite bands. It was Pablo, Arits, Alvaro and Xavi. It was a very bad musicians play, but they did not have a vocalist. In 1996, the University Pablo met with Amalia. Soon she agrees to become a member of the group.

Songs like «Paris», «Soledad» or «Cuidate» have become hits, and became the hallmark of the group for many years.

In 2007, Amaya has decided to leave the band. She wanted to start a solo career. Presenting debut album, called, in our view very original, «Amaia Montero», the singer described her as “elegant” and said that the album has turned out exactly as she wanted. While many admirers of her talent noted that in many songs, the voice sounds very sluggish. Responding to questions from journalists about Amaya

A few years later we can say that no one is lost. Group by inviting new soloist, continues to enjoy great popularity. Amaya, releasing his first solo album, received a double platinum disc – an award for selling more than 160,000 copies of his. Going on a long tour, the singer said in an interview the following: “I look forward to the time when I once again come out on stage and make a statement before the public. I do not like working in the studio for me to sing in front of the audience – a real magic. The new disc was very “guitar” and elegant, and the musicians with whom he recorded and I’m going on tour, I really trust ».
