Album Notes
Amy Lou was lucky to grow up in rural Kentucky surrounded by a family cast of talented musicians. Though she's traversed the country and is now planted in Alaska, she retains a simple and honest style gleaned at porch picking parties and from singing in church.

Of Roots and Of Wings, her debut album, is an intensely personal work inspired by learning how to hold on (Roots) and how to let go (Wings). The album was recorded at Shangri-la Studio in Lexington, Kentucky, by Duane Lundy, and mastered by Bob Klotz.

Described as "uplifting" by Ben Sollee, Amy Lou's voice and songs are gently edifying, whimsically innocent and can be transformative. On this album, she’s pleased to be sometimes joined by talented musicians Frank Wilson (guitar), Scott Elmore (electric bass), Dave Dones (bass) and Carmel Bowman (fiddle).
