At “Her Black Iron Ship” (from Trust Aqua, a song written about Amy and her piano by Akiko Pavolka) Amy always seeks sounds she’s never heard, and it comes through in the “oddly structured beauty” (Scottish Herald) of her highly arranged, effervescent music. Amy’s 2nd album I’m in Crinoline has been enjoying radio and print success from WNYC: “Boiling over with life” (David Garland) to London’s Resonance and BBC Radio 3 and 6: “Bang up to date edge from someone who's music I'm very much enjoying in the moment...Terrific, Absolutely Terrific” (Stuart Maconie) to Pitchfork Media: “Great music...with a voice as idiosyncratic as they come” (Pitchfork Media Feature: The Month in: Out Music). An international touring artist, Amy has toured Europe 5 times in the past 3 years, performing her music at festivals and venues such as Italy’s UBI Jazz, Woma Jazz, Senigallia’s Notte Bianca, Geni Musicali, Croatia’s FoPa Festival of Performing Arts, Berlin’s Clavier-Cabinett, and London’s famed 12 Bar and Ray’s Jazz Shop. Glowing Italian audiences recently returned Amy’s songs with a "tris" and her music was described as "appassionata, introspettiva, dissonante e armonica" (Il Mattino di Padova). “Her songs are not like much else you've ever heard.” (-Three Weeks, Scotland).
