WATCH FOOTAGE OF AUSTIN

Austin was born with music in her heart. When I was babysitting her at 6 months old, I put her in her boppy and played my guitar and sang for her. As soon as she heard the music, she immediately become very still and LOCKED her gaze on on me! I’ve performed music with kids for a long time and I have never experienced that kind of focus from a child that young. She was downright studying me!!!

At age 5 she began writing songs, and they flowed from her so naturally. It was extraordinary how a girl at her tender age could craft good quality pop songs!

When she was 11, during a family visit, she and I worked together on her song and recorded it in my home studio. It was a first for both of us! Her first time recording and my first time producing, creating midi instrument tracks and recording another artist.

Here is one of the first recordings of Austin at 11.

Amy & Austin

I’m so proud of this young lady! She is fullfilling her dream to make it on American Idol. We’ll be watching a routing for her!

I had the great pleasure of recording this young and talented jazz singer, Paloma Brooks. Paloma has studied with Jazz vocalist and teacher Daria – www.dariajazz.com since she was 10 years old. These audio and video recordings were demos to submit to colleges for entrance into their music programs. Watch for great things from this young lady!

This is a video short (2 min) about my extraordinary experience meeting master luthier Steve Klein and playing some of the most unique guitars ever made. One was a large bodied guitar similar to the one he made for Joni Mitchell, which was very meaningful for me, and another rare guitar called a “Transperformance Performer” a SELF-TUNING ACOUSTIC GUITAR!

I created this video using Final Cut Pro which I have been learning. The footage is from an iphone lending to it’s organic feel. Making video’s and short movies is a new creative passion of mine. This was my first attempt at narrating and I found it quite a challenge! Believe me singing is much easier but I’m learning as I go! Hope you enjoy!

Just completed a promotional video that features snippets of some of the songs featured our “MOSTLY JONI” show. Check it out!

Presenting “Mostly Joni,” the songs of Joni Mitchell. Performing with Amy is bassist Robin Hildebrant, whose virtuosic fretless playing recalls the legendary Jaco Pastorius. Together they capture the timeless beauty, heartfelt passion and musical mastery of one of the most poetic and influential singer/songwriters of her generation.
