ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hi...thanks for visiting and reading about some of the most relaxing harp music I have ever recorded. My training as a classical musician did not include much in terms of music and healing...so, this has been an amazing personal journey of experience and discovery.

Here's a little background to give you an idea of who I am (in chronological order):

* began playing harp in 4th grade...been playing for 30 years...so...yes, that would make me 40 years old (and loving it!!)
* received lots of wonderful awards for music while growing up
* participated in several pageants and was Illinois' Junior Miss in 1983
* went to Indiana University and graduated with a degree in Telecommunications
* studied harp with Susan McDonald and Linda Wood (amazing teachers!)
* moved back to St. Louis after college and played professionally in the area
* met my husband, got married and had two children (boys...now ages 8 & 12)

In 1990 a family friend was going through hospice treatment and I recorded 60 minutes of music on my boom-box for her to use during her visualizations. Well, one thing led to another and I ended up professionally recording the music and developed a questionnaire with a music therapist to validate it's effectiveness. That was the beginning of my journey. (the good news - it WAS effective!)

Seven years later my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I went back into the studio and recorded "New Love-awaken to yourself" to help him relax after surgery. (he's still alive and doing great!)
When I shared it with friends, I was amazed at the positive feedback it was getting. EVERYONE commented on how it helped them relax.

Through a series of 'perfect' coincidences, I met a psychologist and neurotherapist, William Collins, Ph.D.,who agreed to conduct a pilot study on people, using Quantitative EEG, to measure their brainwave frequencies as they listened to the music. Everyone he measured showed that the CD "New Love" induced a state of relaxation in four minutes!

Dr. Collins then designed a research study to see if my music could help impact the immune systems of cancer patients by helping them relax. To move forward with this project, I formed the Scientific Arts Foundation, a 501(3) non-profit corporation, to further develop and research how creative expression impacts the healing process.
You can read more about it on my website.

So, now I share music in a more 'intentional' way through recordings, concerts, funeral services, memorial services, in hospitals, hospices, and for cancer events. I've also developed a presentation called, "Vibrational Awareness- How Music and Sound Impact Our Daily Lives" which I've presented at local, regional and national conferences for hospice workers, social workers, chaplains, volunteers, medical personnel and families. I love my life...thanks for letting me share a little of it with you.

Now, here's some information about my CDs currently available on CD Baby:

NEW LOVE "awaken to yourself"
An enchanting 60 minute solo harp CD of soothing and relaxing melodies written by artists such as Jim Brickman and David Lanz. Shown to induce relaxation in 4 minutes, this CD helps create an oasis of serenity, peace and harmony during stressful times.

This CD has been shared with hundreds of:
* New York City Firemen and their families after 9/11 to help them relax and sleep
* Cancer patients
* Hospice organizations across the country
* Military families and veterans
* Friends and family members
* Inner Self customers (a retail chain which offers products that help women reconnect and rediscover their inner beauty)


"A Space Within"
The 13 tracks on this original 62 minute CD are feelings...no words...no titles...just expressions from a Space Within. This CD is dedicated to my Grandma Mattie, who quietly transitioned on February 9, 2004 after living 97 years. While going through her bible, we found honest and personal letters she had written to express her pain, joy, sorrow, beliefs and love. We realized that we didn't really KNOW Grandma Mattie...we only knew what she was willing to share with us. In truth, no one really KNOWS anyone else. We can only truly know ourselves. We all have a Space Within that is sacred, open, honest, vulnerable, loving and accepting. This space is our connection back to ourselves. Within this space, all of our answers can be found. Within this space, all of our dreams still live. Within this space, we are free. As you listen to this CD, I invite you to release your thoughts, relax your body, open your heart and rediscover your Space Within.

"Christmas Love"
This CD was inspired by the light in my children's eyes, the love in my husband's heart and the joyous little girl in me who wanted to come out and play. I love all the arrangements on this CD (that's why I chose them)...Jim Brickman, Mannheim Steamroller, Michael Scott...they all sound great on solo harp!

"I Will Always Be With You" (book/cd set)
Inspired by my children and written for the child in all of us after September 11, 2001, this gentle lullaby reminds us that we are never alone. Perfect to share with anyone who feels separated from someone they love.

Now Available: "Love and Gratitude" @ www.cdbaby.com/camie5
A 60 minute collection of Jim Brickman's heartfelt piano music recorded on solo harp. Each selection is an expression of Love for life's precious moments and Gratitude for the gift of their experience.

Thanks for reading. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Loving Life...all of it,
Amy

Dynamite!
Awesome cd, very relaxing and comforting. Since being diagnosed with a chronic illness, I find comfort in this type of music.

A letter Amy received from a licensed psychotherapist

I couldn't recommend this CD more for Post Traumatic Stress!!
As a Psychotherapist who works a great deal in the field of trauma and PTSD, I couldn't recommend more highly using Amy Camie's harp CDs to calm people in times of tragedy and horrific trauma...specifically, right now in Katrina's aftermath...I highly recommend the playing of Amy's music in shelters, on the radio, on any form of public dispersal that will help the victim's of Katrina's devastation. Amy's music calms the nerves, soothes the soul, and creates a certain kind of brain-wave function that helps to ameliorate Post Traumatic Stress. It is effective for adults and children alike. I couldn't recommend this more!

letter Amy received from a mother of 3

Amy's music helped my son with Post Traumatic Stress
Our family experienced a house fire due to a natural gas leak and explosion of our next-door neighbor's home. After the explosion, my son had recurrent nightmares, difficulty sleeping and was very anxious about unfamiliar sounds and smells...Amy's music enabled him to calm himself and settle down to sleep. We play the music every night at bedtime. It has also made a very positive impact on the behavior of my autistic twin four-year olds. Their sleep has improved, as well. I credit Amy's music with improving our quality of life. It has helped my son to nearly completely recover from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. It has helped him to go on and lead a normal life. It has decreased anxiety and stress in our home. And it is so pleasant and uplifting to hear. We are fortunate to be blessed by her music which has helped my family immensely.

a letter Amy received from a Ph.D.

simply wonderful!
Amy's New Love CD is simply wonderful! I can sit and listen to it over and over again, and it puts me in touch with a place of inner peace. Amy's intention to give love to the world just vibrates through her fingertips and pours out through her harp to inspire healing to any individual who might be experiencing any physical, mental, or spiritual wounds in their lifetime...as well as to anyone who simply wants to sit back, relax and enjoy the magic of a beautifully played instrument!

a letter Amy received from a New York City Counseling Unit after

Thank you for the hours of relief
This note is to thank you for all the "New Love" CDs you have sent. Events of September 11, 2001 have taught us how much we all have a need to step back, decompress and relax. Your CD has become part of the "Ft. Totten Experience." During the day it is played for clients and staff alike. We continue to be pleased by the response we get from family members and fire fighters that have gotten copies. I cannot thank you enough for the hours of relief your work and kindness have brought the FDNY family.

letter Amy received from an RN, CHPN, CHTP, LMT

absolutely love it
I do so enjoy giving out your CD to our patients. They absolutely love it and I can't tell you how comforting it has been in such a scary hurricane season...We've almost given out the 1000. Isn't that wonderful. Thank you so much for using your God given talent to uplift so many others. You truly will never see the impact you have had.

Surprisingly Romantic
I purchased this CD to use while giving massage. However, I decided to test it out on my husband first. I played it for him while we made dinner without giving him any background info. He commented over and over on how much he liked it and asked why I had not played it before. An amorous mood ensued directly.

Kevin Ferris, MSW, LCSW

Used CD successfully with my dying patients to reduce anxiety
I used New Love at the hospice house where I was a social worker. It was especially effective with patients who experienced high anxiety as their ability to breathe worsened, and medication was not always effective. I used it in conjunction with visualization and breath work, and left it for patients & families to play. Virtually everyone expressed gratitude and pronounced it beneficial - thank you, Amy, for the relief this gave my patients!

William G. Collins, Ph.D.

Relaxation is greater when this CD is used
In treating patients with excessive stress or hypertension, I've been using the solo harp CD, NEW LOVE "awaken to yourself" with dramatic results. I've been comparing various types of music with this solo harp CD. In every case thus far the level of relaxation, as measured by the increase in the alpha wave frequency, is greater when this CD is used.

Linda S., Cancer Patient

There is magic here!
I don't know what the magic is in this recording; the beauty of the harp playing, the resonant sound of the harp itself, the desire of the artist to bring comfort to people in turmoil, the particular melodies. Whatever the source, there is magic here.
