Amy is an Ohio Valley musician and singer. Born in Cincinnati, she was raised in a musical family and began playing professionally at age twelve with her parentís musical group. Their numerous performances were rewarded when their family band was named Ohioís Musical Family of the Year by the American Federation of Musicians. Amy then attended the University of Cincinnatiís College-Conservatory of Music, earning her Bachelorís degree. Amy is principally a vocalist and keyboard player, but because of her extensive musical training, she is competent on several instruments, as well as possessing powerful vocal abilities.
She has always been musically active. In the early 80's, Amy sang and played with local bands like the Buddy Rogers Big Band, Sundown and Musical Impass, while attending the College-Conservatory of Music. The 90's brought more gigs and Amy formed a cover band of her own called "KNYGHT BLYNDE" with her then bass player husband. The husband and the band didnít last, but music and performing have always remained a constant in her life.
The end of the 90's brought music technology to a fore front. The use of musical sequencing equipment has catapulted the possibilities for single musicians or small bands to enhance the full sound experience of live music. Amyís knowledge of sequence assisted live performances is amazing and she now utilizes this technology in her performances.
Although she has performed cover tunes most of her life, Amy also demonstrates talent in original music composition. She is now releasing her very first original CD called Starting Over. Her new CD, Starting Over, will take you on a journey of love, humor, passion and sorrow. Influenced by the likes of Melissa Etheridge and Elton John, her hard-hitting rock and intensely personal love songs will leave you wanting more.
Amy has also recorded background vocals for several Christian rock/pop CDís. Her expertise of musical sequencing has made her in high demand among other professional musicians. Her sequences have been used for church services, special events, as well as numerous studio recordings.
Since the 2000's have arrived, Amy still occasionally performs with her family band. She has played and toured with the duo "FANDANGO" but has now gone solo. A dynamic performer, Amy Annetteís provocative lyrics and sultry, smokey vocals have made her an audience hit! Her passion for music reaches out and engages the audience like no other performer. Look for her playing locally in Cincinnati.
Amyís musical abilities, stage presence and professionalism are a MUST for your next musical event!
