Dobbin and Red Light have high hopes for their new protégé.
“With huge releases and collaborations on the horizon, viral TikTok videos, dance workshops and worldwide touring plans,” a statement reads, “all we can say is…you best get yourself familiar with the name ARMANI because you’ll be hearing and seeing it everywhere.”
After making a move to Atlanta where she worked closely with acclaimed songwriter and producer Teddy Riley, the R&B artist enjoyed a breakthrough with her debut 2019 release ‘Pretty Little Thing,’ which has scored more than one million plays on Spotify and 340,000-plus views on YouTube.

Now aged 22, AMARNI landed a slot on the Australian leg of the 2020 Drip World Tour, which was scrapped due to “unforeseen circumstances” and artist availability.
Founded by music industry power player Coran Capshaw, Red Light’s stacked stable of artists includes Dave Matthews Band, Lady A, Brandi Carlile, Odesza and the Tom Petty Estate.
Its Australian artist roster includes Hayden James, Amy Shark and Dobbin’s longtime management client GG MAGREE.
