I just finished three shows on the central coast of California with acoustic bassist, Steve Uccello. All three shows were a hit! It was so great to be on the road again. And playing music with Steve has been amazing. This Friday we will be performing at Open Voice Studios in San Francisco, which is where I currently teach singing! I’m really excited about this show. Gentry Bronson will be sharing the other half of the night. He’s a talented songwriter and performer from Santa Rosa. This is an extra-special show because it’s the middle of my community and so personal to me. If you’re near San Francisco please come!
Yes, you heard it right. I will be releasing a new single of an old tune. “Angel’s Road” was originally recorded on my album, Kite, released in 2006. But in 2011 I made a new version, with Daniel Brown playing cello and with a better production quality all around. Some of you may have received it when you helped fund my last Kickstarter Campaign for my album, Grow to Catch the Wind. On May 21st the mp3 will be available to all via CDBaby, and I will post the link here!
So I decided on a whim to start recording basement sessions for you! These videos will be recorded casually in my basement or in other areas, perhaps on tour or in practice with other artists. The first is a sneak peak into my participation in this Saturday’s Joni Mitchell Tribute in Santa Cruz. View it here. Enjoy!
2013 started to run away without me for the first couple months. I woke up and it was March and realized I’d better get my butt in gear! Shows have started to firm up. Santa Cruz will be on April 19th, and San Francisco is still being finalized but it’s likely to be in May. There is also a Central Coast Tour in the making for May 9–12. And finally dates for France and Europe are being put together for the Summer and Fall. Stay tuned and everything will be posted here and on Facebook.
It’s the final push to get me to Austin for this showcase during SXSW! Can you guys help me out just a little bit more? The next step is to visit my video page on Zazoo, click “Support” and then follow the instructions to share my video in every way you can. Thank you all so much! I can’t do this without you. You’re the best! I’m in the top 100 out of almost 2000 submissions and now I just need to get into the top 10. I think we’re close!
Wow. I’m impressed! I went to my Reverbnation page today and saw I am number #1 in the charts for Singer-Songwriter in San Francisco. I can’t help but wonder, “how in the world did that happen?” But I guess I know how it happened. It’s you guys! All of you supporting my music, you are so appreciated. Thank you all!
I’ve applied for this sweet showcase in Austin, Texas. Out of 1000+ bands to choose from, I’ve made it to the top 100! Over the next week they will be choosing their top 10, and eventually only two bands will get to go to Austin for the showcase. There is serious support for me on their site! If you’d like to increase my odds of getting to Austin, please post a little note about my music on The Outlaw Roadshow Facebook Page. It will literally only take ten seconds. All you need to do is post something like “Amy Obenski is awesome!” or “You have to see Amy Obenski Live!”. Enthusiasm is great. And you’re allowed to post multiple times if you want. Thank you all so much for getting me this far! Let’s see if I can get to Austin!
I’m very excited to have this concert in my future. I haven’t played in the “East Bay” in such a long time, and The Starry Plough is such a cool spot. If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area I would love to see you there! I’ll be opening the night at 9pm. Following me are two great acts: Yonat and Her Muse and Berel Alexander. If you’d like to RSVP or see more details you can do so via Facebook.
Yep. All of my albums are now 15% off on CD Baby until January 1st. That puts them at ten bucks a piece. Enjoy! Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
I was digging through my inventory of CDs, trying to get more organized after my move from Santa Cruz to San Francisco. And I realized I have a surprisingly small amount of copies of my second album, Kite. This is the album with “Carousel” on it. That’s the song that aired on the TV show, Grey’s Anatomy. To be honest, I’m not exactly sure how many copies I have. It could be as few as sixty. And with the mp3 revolution, I may not be printing more. Make sure to buy yours soon if you wish to own a copy. Catch me in concert to get it autographed. Some of the copies on CD Baby may be signed already but I’m not sure of that either.… You can buy those online by clicking here.
