ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Biography --

To make the voice of Amy Barcroft, the Lord took the blue
from the summer Tennessee skies and added afternoons sultry with
Four O’Clock vines rambling over the West Tennessee countryside
where Amy and her three brothers rode their bikes, exploring the
woods and visiting with friends. Our Creator mixed early adventures
from a simpler time—a time when kids were safe to roam
unsupervised until dinnertime—with the discipline and life lessons
learned milking cows, churning butter, canning food and growing
gardens. Finally, He poured the entire creation through the sieve of
her parents’ and grandparents’ tightly knit love, straining away
impurities and leaving a voice as warm as it is strong.

Having grown up in one of many families for whom money was
tight, Amy recalls, “We had our share of ups and downs, but we had
what we needed. I knew I was loved.”

Amy’s voice was given to her through her mother, Anne Morgan Burrow, who made beautiful music as a
church organist, children’s choir director and gospel music radio show host, singing along to her own organ
accompaniment. Seeing the potential in her little one, Mrs. Burrow wrote in her daughter’s baby book when
Amy was 2½ years old: Sings same songs as older kids, carries a tune so good. Knows all of "Do, Lord" and many
others. Sings with junior choir at church. A year later, Mrs. Burrow wrote: Sings all children's songs at Sunday
school as big as older children.

As a child, Amy’s family sang their way over rural roads. She rocked away the miles, singing folk favorites
such as “Found a Peanut” and “Froggy Went A’Courtin’”. In the first grade, Amy was selected to sing “The Little
Drummer Boy” during the Christmas play. The response she receives when she sings today echoes the appreciation
expressed during those early years.

When Amy was 8 years old, she wrote her first song. “I remember liking the way certain notes sounded,” she
says, “so I put them together and wrote the music to ‘The Cherry Merry Waltz’.” She returned to songwriting as
personal expression during her adolescent years. As an adult, Amy’s attention turned to her responsibilities as a
wife and mother. When the Lord called her back to her songwriting, Amy poured her heart into it.

At the age of 10, Amy was invited to sing in the adult choir at Braden United Methodist Church, which was
her home church until about 15 years ago. Now the adult choir director at Union Grove United Methodist
Church in Brownsville, Tenn., Amy continues to share her music through her First Fruit CD and through
personal appearances.

Amy’s life—and her voice—are vessels of service. “My purpose,” she says, “is to bring love and light into the
world and to help people find their way along life’s journey. The way this manifests itself in me seems to change with the
seasons of my life. One constant, though, has been my involvement in church music ministry by singing when I’m asked,
whether at my home church, at revivals or at community functions. In addition, I try to serve by helping others, whether
through random acts or in more structured ways of giving and sharing what I have.”

The passion with which Amy sings comes from the understanding that God’s promises are true and that
music opens hearts. “All I want is to help people learn about God’s love,” she says, “and music is a universal,
non-threatening way to hear about God. Besides, I can often think of a song that teaches a biblical truth when I can’t
always reference the same truth as scripture.”

Amy and her husband Hubert are active in the West Tennessee Emmaus Community. They spread the same
love that surrounded Amy through what she calls “the loving, nurturing environment and people” of the Braden
and Union Grove congregations.

Amy has most recently completed on her second album, "God's Promises." Her voice dances as she talks about the kind of music she has written, saying, “Once the door opened, the songs just started coming! I know they are from God because the songs are not my typical type of music; they’re upbeat Christian acoustic bluegrass - we like to call it New Grass. This is God’s project. I’m just the vessel. It’s exciting and it's very humbling.”
