Album Notes
Amy Frederick began studying the piano when she was six years old. The youngest of four children, she learned how to read notes in the Classical style while secretly harboring fantasies of being a songwriter in a rock and roll band. Her first recording experience was singing Beatles songs into a portable cassette player at age seven. "She loves you yeah, yeah, yeah!"

Along with the Beatles her early musical influences were of a wide range considering the differences in age of her family members. As a result she gave equal attention to artists such as James Taylor, Dolly Parton, Paul Simon, Kitty Wells, Carole King, Herb Alpert and the Tiajuana Brass, Billy Joel, Sonny James, Harry Nilsson, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan and the Lawrence Welk show! It should come as no surprise that her career path has been equally unpredictable.

Her first employment as a pianist was during the seventh grade, accompanying a production for a local church. For the next few years she gathered as much experience as possible accompanying school choirs, local productions of Broadway shows, solo singers and instrumentalists. After highschool, she was awarded a scholarship to study piano at the Aspen Music Festival and graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in music performance.

Upon graduation, dissatisfied with the role of a Classical pianist she bought a digital keyboard, joined a rock and roll band and began studying jazz. At this time she made it two of her life's goals to become a studio musician and songwriter. By studying voice, programming hundreds of songs into a computer, and playing lots of society gigs in a lot of bands, Amy learned how to be a pop musician. In 1993, she spent four-and-a-half months performing for hundreds of people daily on a paddlewheel boat in JAPAN. Upon return to the U.S. she moved to Nashville, TN where she resides to this day.

For the past eleven years Amy has been a member of "Liberation," a band with a 30 year legacy of success in Bowling Green, KY. She has performed with this group 4-6 nights per week, 48 weeks of the year. She has performed her own songs at the renowned Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, has played and sung on many studio projects, collaborated as an arranger on two recordings by children's artist, Rachel Sumner and is a member of TAXI, an independent music promotion company which has forwarded many of her songs to national companies looking for music by independent artists.

Amy teaches a few piano students when she is not writing or performing and has worked for the Nashville Institute for the Arts as an artist teacher, taking arts education into public schools. She is a committed life-long learner and recently bought a vintage Hammond C3 organ and Leslie 122 speaker. She released her first CD, "However We Like" on her own label, Greenbaby Records in 2004.

Great New Songs that Really Rock
The craftsmanship in this CD is what stands out most to me. The lyrics express feelings we've all had but the poetry is never trite or obvious. The music is creatively crafted to enhance the lyrics. There are no old, worn-out, three-cord songs on this CD. The arrangements pick from a wide variety of instruments to match the feel of the song. An outstanding array of Nashville musicians play on this CD. Finally, the CD liner notes are artistic and much better than what often accompanies the CDs produced by big name bands.


Great sounding CD with lyrics that enhance it even further!
Great CD! The songs sound so good and the lyrics really resonate. I'll never think of a sunflower or a midway the same way again. And every time I hear the last song, "She was Fine," I'm ready to listen to it all over again!


Hooray! She finally put out a CD! This album has been many years in the making, and all of the time spent by the artist was worth it. Each song is clever and different. You can tell that she has her roots in the Beatles as well in folk music, but she always adds her own unique twists to every genre she performs. Not only is she a talented musician, but she is a clever lyricist as well. DOUBLE THREAT!!! Well done Amy! I would certainly recommend your CD to anyone with an appreciation for good music.

Nashville fan

The well-crafted lyrics and music on this CD stay with you from the first listen. The songs comprise an entertaining and cohesive blend of styles. From the heartbreaking "I Have To Go" to the quirky "Can You Hear Me Now" to the haunting "Midway," I'm only left wanting more from this up-and-coming artist.


Refreshing variety of soft rock with thoughtful lyrics and catchy tunes
This CD is refreshingly different than what you are generally hearing on the radio now. It is reminiscent of Mary Chapin's older stuff where you loved every track. Also, you can groove to it driving down the road. The lyrics really resonate with me and the tunes are memorable too. "Sunflower", "I'll Be Here", "This Is Our Day", I love them all.


Love it! Great style and voice!
There's not a song on this CD that I can't get into - great variety, love the
voice and the messages. Can't pick a favorite - I enjoy every song!

Music Lover

First, and most important of all, this CD sounds great!!! Amy has done a fantastic job of displaying her many talents by writing the songs, arranging the music, playing the keyboard and singing the lyrics. The lyrics are clever, meaningful and witty. My number one favorite song is “Lucky Dog”. I just love that song! I highly recommend this CD to all.
