Hi! I'm Amy. It's a little hard for me to say just what I am...do you ever feel that way? I think that as women, the labels we use can feel limiting sometimes. Yes, I am a mom, and yes, I do music, but I also love being on-air (at Austin’s newest alt radio station, 105.3FM The Fringe), I love my partner and biggest fan Kevin and my wonderful friends, love working on my home, and so much more. I'm writing a children's book with my husband about a young girl’s musical aspirations, but I also adore fashion and dream of having my own line someday. I think we all have endless new versions of ourselves just waiting to get out. If you had told me ten years ago I would be writing and recording an album at 41, I would have thought that was absolutely crazy. I didn't pick up a guitar until 2010, and now it's an integral part of my life as I am about to release my new album, Forward, in the fall. I consider myself a little bit of everything and I write what I am feeling at that moment. Because... why not?
