ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This version of Angel's Road was recorded in 2010 at the same time as Amy Obenski's album, Grow to Catch the Wind. However, it was not released with the album and was stowed away for the right moment. Daniel Brown covers the track with his droning cello, invoking the sounds of a fiddle but with more depth. The first version was included on her album, Kite, which was released in 2006. Both versions have their appeal. It's up to you to decide which one you prefer or if you love them both equally.

Her haunt­ing and ethe­real vocals have been heard on the T.V. show, Grey’s Anatomy, and MTV’s real­ity show, MADE. Lyri­cally she’s been known to bring under­ly­ing thoughts to the sur­face– thoughts that most peo­ple have but don’t reveal. For this rea­son her music has been described as “grip­ping”, though musi­cally she can be com­pared to mel­low divas such as Sarah McLach­lan or Norah Jones.

Amy’s fourth album, Grow to Catch the Wind (2011), took her mul­ti­lay­ered sound to new lev­els. A string quar­tet, lay­ered har­monies, and howl­ing cello solos all join with her sig­na­ture soar­ing vocals, piano and gui­tar. Amy’s lyri­cal con­fes­sions pierce through the sonic com­plex­ity, per­haps more than ever. The album, her most brave and hon­est work yet, is the cul­mi­na­tion of sev­eral years of soul-searching, a cycle of death and rebirth.

Amy’s eclec­tic sound draws on her back­ground in clas­si­cal and jazz, and influ­ences rang­ing from folk to funk. “Music has always been engrained in my life,” says Amy. “It’s in my breath. Peo­ple ask my influ­ences but it’s really hard to say. Mozart, Billy Hol­i­day, Prince, Bob Dylan…. They’re all in there.” Amy began study­ing music at age five, and con­tin­ued through­out her child­hood, singing in her school choirs, tak­ing piano lessons, and con­tin­ued through col­lege, even­tu­ally lead­ing her to where she is today.
