Amaia Montero Saldías (born August 26, 1976), best known as the original vocalist of La Oreja de Van Gogh between 1996 and 2007, is a singer/songwriter from Basque Country, Spain. Including her work with the band, Montero has sold more than 7 million albums worldwide.
LA OREJA DE VAN GOGH
"La Oreja de Van Gogh" was formed in 1996, after guitarist Pablo Benegas, bassist Álvaro Fuentes, keyboardist Xabi San Martín, and drummer Haritz Garde met at a local university. Amaia Montero joined the band subsequently, following an invitation by Benegas. The two met at a dinner party after he heard Montero singing Sinéad O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U". After experimenting with band names, such as "Los Sin Nombre" they decided on La Oreja de Van Gogh which means Van Gogh's ear.
In 2007, she thought that she had more opportunities the band said that they would be on hiatus so that Amaia could release her solo album. Amaia announced her departure from the group on November 19, 2007, hoping to launch a solo career. La Oreja de Van Gogh remains active and has now released two albums with new lead singer Leire Martínez.
