I've had an amazing time doing my Coffee with Amy live streams every week. I've done sixteen consecutive Sundays. This Sunday will be seventeen! I'm sad and hesitant to share with you this Sunday will be my last for a while. I won't be gone. I might bring back Coffee with Amy in some form, or do other live streams or both! I just need a moment to work on some other projects and give the live streams a break. I'll miss you a ton but I promise I'll be back. Here's the link to the final event. https://www.facebook.com/events/2619488284972860

Well, this COVID-19 really just threw the train off the tracks, didn’t it? My shows have been canceled and tour planning is on hold. I wanted to do something to contribute to everyone stuck at home without live music. So I put together Coffee with Amy. It’s a live stream show at 10am (PST) on Sundays.
People tuned in from all over the US, France, The UK, Greece, and Mexico. It feels so good to get people together (many on the west coast in their PJs) and me in my PJs, over coffee and some light discussion and music. People sent in their selfies upon my request and that was really sweet. It completely made my day. I came up with Coffee with Amy as a way to contribute to others during this time. What I didn’t realize is that I really need it as well. It fed my soul and lifted me out of a funk.
Join me in your PJs and morning beverage of choice and virtually cuddle up with me for 45 minutes. I’ll sing some songs too! You can join at 10am Sundays on my Facebook Page . You don’t need a facebook account to watch. I hope to see you all in real life soon but in the mean time I’ll do my best to brighten your days from afar.
I’m organizing a benefit concert to take place on October 23rd in San Francisco! >>>GET TICKETS HERE<<<
One of my favorite SF bands, Midtown Social is headlining, Rafael Sarria (of La Gente SF) is playing too, and I’ll be throwing in a couple songs myself. We are raising money for RAICES, an organization providing legal support to detained immigrants. This is HUGE. Please come out and show your support and help us make a difference. At least 50% of proceeds will be going to the organization.
So three weeks ago I had a little mishap. I fractured my foot while hiking. I rolled my foot stepping down from a rock and…. bam! It’s slowed me down a lot. I’ve still been able to make my local shows. I just had to schedule some roadies to carry my gear and set up for me. The sad part is this: I decided to cancel my August Tour Dates. If you’ve been following along you may have seen dates pop up in Utah and Colorado. They are all canceled.
It’s possible I could have pushed through and done them but more than anything I want a foot that is fully functioning in my future. So I decided not to push it. It’s different when it’s your arm or something, but when it’s your foot and you need to carry gear back and forth across who knows what terrain and up and down stairs…. well, it’s just too much too soon. So my lovelies out in Utah and Colorado you will just have to wait. I’m so sorry. I’ll be back in the swing soon enough. I miss you.
Things are heating up over here with two Live Looping shows in April. I’m sharing both shows with the notorious CelloJoe based in Berkeley, CA. “The Genie” is joining us as the headliner for the show on April 5th at Neck of the Woods.
