Around age two, Amy found her singing voice. Coming from a long line of musical genes including, Vaudeville, Glenn Miller Orch., USO, and her parents meeting each other in a band, music has always been an integral part of her life.
Some highlights of her early years are leads in HS and college plays/musicals, 1st Alto chair in All Catholic Chorus , and singing at the White House. Amy has developed her craft to show extreme versatility, range, and style.
In 1997 she graduated from Penn State University with a degree combination of studio arts (painting, drawing, sculpture) and musical theater. During her four years at PSU/Main she co-formed and directed an all-female
A Cappella Group, sang in 2 university groups, and on the side formed an acoustic trio playing covers and originals all over State College. Amy continued with music right after graduation by working with area songwriters, doing demo work and jingles. In 1998 she finished her cd "Each Second In Between" a compilation, produced by the multi-talented Anthony Newett. One of her works is featured on his website www.newettstudios.com
In 1998 Chatterband was in the market for a new female lead. Based on a week with the band Amy was invited into the TCB family. It's been a fun and wild rollercoaster ever since. She says Chatterband is "the most talented group of musicians I've ever had the pleasure to work with, professionally and personally. These guys are family."
Performing for over 300,000 on the parkway for the Sunoco Welcome America Celebration, opening for Kool & The Gang, and performing with Jarod Spector (of Jersey Boys fame as Frankie Valli on Broadway) and attending close to 500 weddings, have been some of the highlights over the TCB years.
Separate from TCB, she is featured on numerous projects by local musicians, cantors wedding ceremonies, is a jingle singer, and records demos for area songwriters. Also a freelance graphic artist, Amy creates advertisements and promotions for area restaurants/bars. A resident of Conshohocken, PA, she works in a family run insurance business by day and sings at night. Engaged this past spring, Amy will be getting married in May 2014 and will add booking agent for TCB to the ever growing list of side jobs! She looks with excitement to the future!
In 2013 Amy made the hard decision to finally retire after getting engaged. April 2014 brought the 16 year saga to a wonderful end. She is still involved with the band doing bookings, marketing and organizational work. Married in May 2014 and having a beautiful daughter, Sophia, in 2015, she now fills in every once in a while!
