ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
While growing up in Arkansas, Amy Miles would lay on the floor of her lemon yellow bedroom listening to music on her clock radio. It was 1982 and Prince was her favorite. That Christmas, "1999" showed up under the Christmas tree and she listened to it over and over. She even made a tape of it so that she could take it to school and listen to it under the jungle gym at recess. She found that this was her favorite place to be. It was here that she thought she might like to write songs one day.

After high school, Amy moved to New York City where she got a studio apartment on Avenue B and Third Street. To make ends meet she worked as a nanny by day and a cage dancer by night. She found that time flew in the big city and before she knew it, years had gone by, two bad relationships had gone by, and while she had lived a lot, she had almost forgotten the inspiration she felt when she listened to Prince under the jungle gym. She decided to pick up the Washburn guitar her dad had sent her, and she played it. Writing up a storm, she started going to open mic's. And with the help of some friendly and talented musicians she was soon performing all over New York City.

She begged, borrowed and stole studio time, and she managed to put together her first record, "Dirty Stay-Out." It was released in August of 2002 and represents three sessions at as many studios that took place over the course of eighteen months. It's the first of many to come.

"This Arkansas-born songstress serves a powerful pop cocktail to her adopted New York neighbors: one part cynical spunk, one part sass, a twist of Liz Phair and a dash of Kim Deal."
-CMJ new music online

"Looking like a cross between actresses Uma Thurman and a young Mia Farrow, Amy Miles possesses a strong, breathy vocal ability mounted on well-written songs that cross many genres, reminding me of Sheryl Crow and Liz Phair without actually ripping either off. Her debut CD Dirty Stay-Outis filled with many stay-with-you-and-that-could-be-a-hit ditties. A nice find - so go find her." Aber/The Village Voice

Amy plays regularly in New York City at The Mercury Lounge, CB's Gallery, Village Underground, Arlene's Grocery, Brownies, and The Living Room. She has opened for Clem Snide, Jason Lowenstein, (Sebadoh),Champale, Ken Stringfellow(ThePosies), MinusFive(featuring Peter Buck), Freedy Johnston, Katel Keinig, and Peter Salett. Amy performed as the musical guest on VH1's "Late World With Zach", and Oxygen's "Pure Oxygen"

i get jealous when she sings because she is so damn good
even if the only song on the cd was "my doom again" this album would still be worth the money spent. amy is a songwriter in the best possible sense, because she doesn't write anything short of poetry. it is intimate in it's recording style, making u feel as if she is singing into your sleepy ear on the pillow next to u, inspiring your dreams to be deeper and more colorful than they would've been. she's all cotton sundresses and dirt under the fingernails. and i DO get jealous when the waif lets it wail.

An Enchanting Path Through a Well Produced, Well Recorded Audio Adventure!
Haunting I've-got-a-story-to-tell lyrics entangled within modern-day Beatles-like melodies are complemented delightfully with the refreshing vocals of Amy Miles in her debut album, Dirty Stay-Out. Use a little imagination and place Patsy Cline singing lead for The Doors and you can almost conceptualize the overall feeling of this album. Don't mistake the reference to mean she is a sound alike... absolutely the opposite! Amy Miles stands on her own two feet. She is not about to slip quietly into the latest fad. With each track of Dirty Stay-Out she displays her unique ability to guide you down an enchanting path of this-is-my-life stories. Dirty Stay-Out is very much a well written, well performed audio adventure. Buckle-up and enjoy!

Amazingly unique voice and talent!
Each song is unique in it's own way and each song pushes her voice to the limit, but she accepts all challenges and the CD proves to be quite a good listen.

Amy Rawks! Dirty Stay Out is a must have.
How many cd's do we have and like every song? Less than a handful out of a couple thousand I have anyway. This one is tops! Powerful lyrics, amazing riffs, keeps you wanting to hear more. Yes, this one goes to all my dj shows with me!
