ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Revelocity (1999) is Amy's solo debut album. No Miracles Today (2003) is her latest release, featuring a full band. Go here for No Miracles Today: http://cdbaby.com/amyroberts2 .

"Amy's songs stay with you...she catches you with tuneful melodies and keeps you there with thoughtful,identifiable lyrics.Her voice is a gorgeous sound...at once pure,sweet and powerful." Amy Freedman,WRNR Radio, Annapolis/Baltimore.

Award-winning performing songwriter Amy Roberts is renowned for her effortless performances, vivid songs and powerful talent. She combines the honesty of Liz Phair with the sweetness of James Taylor-in a voice that reaches all the way down to your soul.

The Seattle P-I raves about the fun Amy brings to a show, and calls her "talented." The Seattle Gay News says Amy "...effortlessly makes it seem as though everyone is just hanging out with her."

Over the past several years, Amy has performed at many of Seattle's major acoustic venues to rave reviews and growing acclaim. Local critics compare her to Natalie Merchant. Fans hear the influence of the Indigo Girls, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell in her music.

Amy has shared the stage with many other award-winning songwriters. Appearances include Liquid Lounge at EMP, NW Folklife Festival, Gay & Lesbian Freedom Festival in Washington D.C., Tractor Tavern (Seattle), the Mews Coffeehouse (Provincetown, MA) and the ROCKRGRL Music Conference.

Amy has released two full-length independent recordings. No Miracles Today is her newest release (Sept. 2003), and features a full band. It is garnering attention from radio stations and critics across the nation. Amy's first CD is Revelocity (Dec. 1999), a solo recording.

Born and raised in New England, Amy's early years of singing involved church choirs, award-winning school choirs, and folk music. She picked up the guitar at age 17 and began writing her own songs 13 years ago. As part of the Dyketones in Provincetown, MA, Amy perfected her stage presence and comic timing. In the mid-1990's Amy was part of a ground-breaking folk-rock trio in Washington D.C. called Wonderground. Comprised of three award-winning singer-songwriters, the band helped to initiate the resurgence of original folk in the mid-Atlantic region. Since then , Amy has been pursuing a solo career in Seattle but still enjoys pulling a band together now and then. Amy can be found many nights of the week performing locally, and on occasional forays into touring the U.S. and Canada.

Poet on Six Strings
Revelocity captures Amy's soul. Love the fact that on this recording it's just Amy and her guitar. She can funk up a solo act. She's not just another girl with guitar, she's a poet songstress who can evoke all the emotions with one CD.
Her presence is alive on this disc the only thing I miss is her hillarious between song live set ad-libing.

i love these songs!
Listening to Amy sing these songs, especially "Between You & Me," makes me feel like I'm a kid just figuring out what love means, or maybe like it's early evening in late August; that achingly beautiful melancholy that seems to make my heart swell. Sweet and poignant.

Jude Hamilton

A great first CD
It's rare that I really like every song on a CD, but this is just nice, in fact would love to hear some of the songs re-recorded with a full back up.

Wendy Lanxner

a voice like heaven on earth
Songs straight from the heart, melodies sweet and powerful, heavenly singing -- this is an exceptionally good CD. How refreshing to hear just voice and guitar! (You know, like you do at a concert? Some s/s's do a lot of unnecessary studio decorating, none of which you'll find here.) The songwriting is exceptional; I can't wait to hear more from this artist. Whoa. What a talent. Watch out world.
