Biography

Ambrosia has been the name of at least four artists:

1. Ambrosia was a California, United States band formed by David Pack (guitars, vocals), Christopher North (keyboards), Burleigh Drummond (drums) and Joe Puerta (bass, vocals). On their self-titled LP in 1974, they blended quirky with lush harmonies and scored hits with the offbeat song Nice, Nice, Very Nice and the ballad Holdin’ on to Yesterday. Their subsequent albums focussed more and more on the pop ballads and less and less on the progressive elements, and while they had some success with singles, they called it quits after 1982’s Road Island. Ambrosia re-formed in the late 90s and continue to tour and enterain their fans. A live CD Live at the Galaxy was released in 2002, and they are currently recording a new studio album that long time fans are hoping will be released in 2009.

2. Ambrosia was a band formed in 2005 in Valmiera, Latvia.

Ambrosia has performed many concerts around Latvia and Estonia area and became one of the best-known newcomers to the Latvian hardcore scene. Their music is also included on music compilation Latvian Hardcore Punk Volume 5.

The band split up in September 2011.

The last lineup:

Andrejs Makarēvičs - vocals;
Jānis Osis - vocals, guitar;
Rūdolfs Rūtenbergs - guitar;
Uldis Andersons - bass guitar (currently Marmöri);
Miks Riekstiņš - drums (currently Marmöri, GhettoZloba).

    Little rock history: The first album, Ambrosia, produced by Freddie Piro, was released in 1975. It spawned the Top 20 chart single "Holdin' On To Yesterday" as well as the minor hit "Nice, Nice, Very Nice." The latter sets to music the lyrics to a song in Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle. The album was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Engineered Recording (other than Classical). Alan Parsons was the engineer for Ambrosia's first album and the producer for their second. All four members of Ambrosia played on the first The Alan Parsons Project album, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, which was recorded soon after Ambrosia's first album. David Pack later appeared on the Alan Parsons album Try Anything Once (1993), co-writing, playing and providing vocals on three songs. :D

    never heard this ever before last.fm put it on my playlist. To me it sounds like the best aspects of the Little River Band, Doobie Brothers and Earth, Wind and Fire, all combined in one. Amazing!

    wonderful memories of the early 80s...a trifecta of soft rock classics: you're the biggest part of me, how much i feel & you're the only woman.

    An interesting fact is Ambrosia's connection with The Alan Parsons Project. Alan Parsons was the engineer for Ambrosia's first album and the producer for their second. All four members of Ambrosia played on the first Alan Parsons Project album, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, which was recorded soon after Ambrosia's first album.

    They just don't make music like this anymore. This song really moves me...in a way that other artists/tracks fail to. In my mind a magical moment has been caught on tape here. If this song doesn't move you...there is something wrong; or you have never been in love.
