About Amy

"There's an authenticity to Amy Obenski's music that gets to the very core of a person."  -Monterey Weekly

Amy Obenski plays lyrically driven, luscious folk-soul originals.  Behind her gripping vocals and thought provoking lyrics, you’ll notice influences from Motown and jazz with glimpses of 1960s folk-rock greats such as Carole King or Joni Mitchell.  Her biggest breakthrough so far was when her song, Carousel, was featured on the hit TV show, Grey's Anatomy.  She just completed her seventh full length album in which she aimed to create “the sound of unfolding”.  The recording features a full band (piano, bass, drums, electric guitar), a string quintet and an abundance of lavish harmonies.
