That’s right! Yay! You can get both in my new Online Store. For Tuesday only, they are 10% off, so you can get both for $25 including shipping. Listen, color, and let me know what you think!
Make sure to get tickets now for my Album and Coloring Book Release Party, April 28th! I’m crafting a very special night for you! (Ticket’s here!) Doc’s Lab is the location and it has the vibe of a “speakeasy”. It’s downstairs in a swanky basement of San Francisco’s North Beach district. Food and drinks are excellent here and candles light the tables.
First, my friend David Colón is performing his looping set. He’s amazingly talented with a strong gorgeous voice, positive lyrics, often rapid word play and the occasional Spanish twist. My good friend and professional artist, Joshua Coffy, is bringing in his easel and will paint something for us that night from scratch. He makes beautiful art which is most often a light-hearted and whimsical approach to our ideals about animals. His painting at my last CD Release Party became a 30 foot tall mural in the heart of San Francisco!
Finally, I will perform a Live Looping set with a couple new songs you haven’t heard and several old favorites. With my Live Looping I perform solo, yet I layer bass, beat boxing, percussion, guitar, piano and harmonies. It’s fun and super cool! I think it adds a new depth to my music. It’s not like having a band. It’s not like playing solo acoustic. It’s something completely different!
Ticket‘s are only $8 in advance and $15 at the door. Make sure to get them asap, in case this sells out.
The venue is all ages. Doors open at 8pm and the music starts at 9pm. There’s great food and drinks so come early for dinner and relax a bit. Find out more about doc’s lab here.
It’s the wave of the future! Patreon is the way you can regularly support my music. This is also my pre-sale and fundraiser for the new album and coloring book! Watch the first 2 minutes or visit https://www.patreon.com/amyobenski. Thanks!
I’m very excited to announce that the new album now has an official release date- April 26th! This is my sixth album. Can you believe it?! I find it mind boggling. The CD Release Party will be in San Francisco on April 28th at the beautiful space of Doc’s Lab. Please join us!
I’m very excited to share with you my Live Looping Video of Fly. I think this video really demonstrates what I’m doing in a Live Looping show, even though it’s done in the studio. I’m very proud of it! Please check it out and share if you have a moment.

I began recording a new album a few weeks ago. I’ve received so many requests to make a looping album that I decided to do just that. In my brain it seemed easy enough to do a solo looping album. When the work began, I quickly learned how much time and energy this sort of project really takes. I’m performing and recording every single little piece of this album. It’s like recording a full band plus a small choir, except each person must record their part separately for each song, and each person is me! You may notice my performance schedule has slowed way down. Not to fear. This is the normal ebb and flow of a recording and performing musician. The shows will pick up again once the new album is released. See you out there! And stay tuned for the new album. I can’t wait to share it with you!
This week you can find me at Far West Conference in Oakland, California. I’m playing three Guerrilla Showcases:
Thursday: 11:30-12:30 in the Earth, Air, Wind & Fire Room
Friday: 1:00-2:00 in the Circle of Song Room
Saturday: 12:30-1:30 in Jim & Maurice’s Totally Legit Showcase
See you out there!
My adventures around California and Nevada have come to a close for the moment. And I finally get to enjoy some rest and catch up on everything that has been on hold. Everyone knows this phase. It actually feels good to finally get to all the things that you’ve had waiting for you back home. And once you dive in, it’s never ending. And just to reminisce a little, here’s a photo from my performance at Bhaktifest on September 11th. I had a wonderful time. Big thanks to everyone I met out there who showed me kindness.
I’m leaving in a few days for quite the adventure. First stop is Burning Man! And I’m playing at Center Camp on Wednesday, September 2nd at 9:45am. Second stop is Bhaktifest West in Joshua Tree. I’m playing there on Friday, September 11th on the second stage at 2pm. If you’ll be out there, please try to find me! I will be difficult to reach for the next few weeks so please be patient if you try to contact me. I’ll post with my adventures upon my return.
