This weekend is all about the Far-West Conference in Oakland, CA. I will be there all weekend so please seek me out! Right now I’m only scheduled to play one showcase on Thursday night, October 16th. The location is in the Susanne Millsaps Room 528, 1:10am. I’ll also be in volunteering as green-room manager for the Choice Concert on Thursday night. Which means I get to hang out with Keith Greeninger, Run Boy Run, Walter Strauss, David Jacobs-Strain, and Red Meat before they go on stage. For daily updates on what I’m up to at the conference please visit my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/amyobenski See you there!
The CD Release Party was a smash! We had a great time and it feels so good to have the release of the album officially out there. Thanks so much to all who attended and all who were there in spirit. As a continuation of sorts I have many many shows in September. Please take a look to see if I’m playing in your area. See you soon!
I couldn’t be more thrilled about my CD Release Party this Saturday! The night will include my live band, a DJ set, live painting, drinks and empanadas! I’m so thrilled that everything has come together so perfectly. I hope to see you there! Click for More Info and Tickets

This won’t be any ordinary concert. I will be playing the entire album from beginning to end with my brand new San Francisco band: Daniel Brown on cello, Roger Kim on electric guitar, Steve Uccello on bass, and John Russell on drums. There will be time to mingle and meet the band. DJ Sig O is playing his mellow grooves before and after our performance and there will be live painting by Joshua Coffy! There will also (hopefully) be food for you. Still workin’ on that… Can’t wait!
This should make you smile. Please share this with your friends and comment on my Youtube page. Enjoy!
This is so exciting! This CD represents all the time I have spent in France over the last couple years. For those who are catching up, I spent three months in France last year collaborating with The Carbone Band from Nantes. We played many shows, recorded an album, and did an Artist in Residence. On the CD you’ll hear our song “Fly”, which was written by all of us! They wrote the instrumental groove and I wrote the lyrics, melody and piano interlude. You’ll also hear them jam out by themselves at the end of the album. There are also so many little “nuggets” of awesome in this album, including a whole string ensemble! I sing a little bit of French and we really explore alternative sounds all over. Please, if you’re enjoying the album, don’t be afraid to get in touch and let me know.
Hurray! You don’t have to wait. You can buy my new album, Restless, right now from iTunes! When you pre-order, iTunes will give you one mp3 right away and the rest on July 1st. Here’s the link!
AXS just posted a great interview about my music and the new album on their site.
