Album Notes

This has the same songs... as well as the digital subscription, only in standard packaging. Enjoy!!

- - - - - - -

The concept of \"Unfinished Art\" is that we, as people, continue to grow and expand and refine ourselves. The CD will also be doing that, and so by purchasing this you automatically receive a free digital subscription to unreleased songs as they are recorded.. expanding the album as time passes. ;)

\"And now your eyes shift from negative spaces
To contours that light up this rough cut design
And now you see it, you\'re sculpture in motion
You\'re unfinished art that keeps going, it keeps going
It keeps going and going and going and going..\"
- from ROUGH CUT*

After 3 years of a full time wood sculpting apprenticeship, Amber Rubarth had a late-night conversation with her mentor who told her the most important thing he had learned in life was for a person to follow their number one passion. Amber said something along the lines of \"Thank you, I am quitting and doing music then,\" and off she went, trading her chainsaw for a guitar and teaching herself to write and play songs.

Her debut record came out 2 years later, and was lauded as \"Top 10 of 2005\" in The Owl Mag (alongside Kanye West, Fiona Apple and Jack Johnson). Soon after she was touring non-stop around the country and Europe, with word spreading fast at her shows and online.

Amber\'s songs beam a refreshing mixture of vulnerability and courage, melancholia and optimism. \"Washing Day\" (co-written with Adam Levy of Norah Jones\' Band) won first place of 15,000 entries in this year\'s International Songwriting Competition (Lyrics). The music video for the song was selected as one of 20 to be officially screened at SXSW (alongside such greats as Thom Yorke and Weird Al Yankovic).

As Music Connection puts it, Rubarth has \"excellent mastery of the guitar, equally impressive on piano.. and a soaring voice that can belt out any tune. As she continues to hone her craft and grow, she may become unstoppable.\"

Better than I ever imagined!
After hearing "You Will Love This Song" for the first time, I fell in love. Now I can't help but sing some of her clever lyrics, and catchy melodies everytime I open my mouth. I'm floored by appreciation and envy every time I listen to each of these 5 songs. I look forward to hearing every song she will offer.

Unfinished art
Deep and direct to your heart, without makeup, the courage of just a guitar (or piano) and voice, strong verses and...natural beauty! I reallly LOVE these beautiful powerful songs coming from the naked soul of my favourite female singer and songwriter!

Something fun and special
I'm in love with Amber's CD - the handmade edition is really special and worth the wait. Great lyrics and cheerful melodies make this a must for those who appreciate a truly different and uplifting singer-songwriter. It's a good thing it ain't vinyl because I would have worn through too many copies. This is an EP I can, and do, listen to over and over.


What Music Is All About
I love Ambers refreshing lyrics, voice and perspective. Her lyrics are so pure and direct for me, there isn't a song of hers that I don't love. What truly makes her songs and this album great, I think, is that she has this inspiring simplicity in her music, but she still paints such a detailed and vivid picture for you. All around, a great purchase and a great artist!!

What a debute!!!
A great 5 song e.p. with fantastic songs and a cover, totally out of this world!
I really like her and her little cool songs.


I absolutely love this album! Her songs are raw inspiring and so personal you feel that you're right there beside her as she sings them. I can't wait for more of Amber!


clear days and soy milk
Listening to this CD is like waking up at four o'clock in the morning and being inspired to run along a sandy beach for miles with no shoes on. It's simple, classic, and utterly refreshing.


Consider the best of the female singer/songwriters from the hippie movement of the 60's right through today, and you will find this young lady to be a unique blend of the very best! An amazing talent. Fresh and unique. Terrific songwriter, musician and singer! I definitely want her music on my Internet radio show! (Ambient Cafe w/Amber at the radio network). If you like folksy singer/songwriters, you will love Amber Rubarth!

Hot like that day ...
I cannot help listen to the CD at least once a day. She's funny and sweet with her heart on her sleeve. I really like how she sings her words... i'm hooked!
