ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born and raised in suburban New Jersey, this New York-based piano-, guitar-, flute-player, vocalist, and writer has been a musician throughout her entire life. With the influence of her maternal grandfather and his old-fashioned sounding piano, Amy Rachman discovered her gift of playing music by ear at the age of 4; her paternal grandfather was a Vaudevillian whose strong, yet mellifluous voice lasted until the age of 98… And the list goes on. Altogether, Amy inherited a multi-layered gift from various musicians on both sides of her family.

With an innate zeal for the written word, Amy taught herself to read before she ever attended school, and at age 6 she began to involve herself in creative writing projects, many of which led to winning various honors for her compelling innovativeness. Also at a very young age, she began formal voice training, and before barely reaching teen-age, she wrote her first song, "Look Up At Me," which she ultimately recorded at the age of 15. The song aired on Trenton, NJ's hallmark radio station, 97.5 - WPST, on their “Unsigned Heroes” program at age 16, the same year that she recorded her second original song, "Where I'm Bound.” Throughout high school Amy continued to write songs, many of which she performed in various coffee house showcases. When not on stage she was intently writing, creating, arranging, and producing her own instrumental, background vocal, and lead vocal tracks. During her senior year she won an award for having written and performed a song in Spanish.

After high school Amy attended Indiana University, home of one of the world's most renowned music schools. During her freshman year she performed in the musical “Hair.” That same year she was appointed as cantor for the university's High Holiday services, a position she served throughout the rest of her undergraduate schooling. From time to time she made guest appearances at local parties as a cover band vocalist. Meanwhile, she continued to tend to her original material and to perform at various venues, including coffee houses, as well as annual karaoke contests, which she won several years in a row.

Amy's performance venues range from Indy to the Indies: While on vacation in St. Lucia, she won numerous vocalist contests, which prompted the island natives to honor Amy with the unprecedented title of "Resident Artist." Amy has also performed at her more local venues, such as Brooklyn's Grand Central Bar; Bliss Café, Mood Restaurant, and Austin Ale House in Kew Gardens, NY; the Theater Café in Forest Hills, NY; Waltz Café of Astoria; the 169 Bar in Chinatown; and Makor, located in New York's Upper West Side. In addition, Amy has been featured on various online radio interviews, and her site has been accessed by at least 60 different countries worldwide. She also holds a Master of Arts degree in speech-language pathology.

“Do You Imagine” features ten of the hundreds of songs Amy has written throughout almost two decades. The album was produced by Art Hays, a former instrumentalist for Matchbox Twenty. A timeless “future classic,” it is a compilation of a wide range of expression. The tracks include Amy’s refreshingly candid recent material, which simultaneously unveils some her mysteriously prolific side that was concealed years back.

Amy Rachman resides in Queens, New York. She continues to write, record, and sustain a remarkable level of intimacy with her steadily growing fan base.

Do You ~ Imagery ~ Does Me
Amy Rachman's Do You Imagine is a beautifully written Album. The imagery of the lyrics are profound. "I thought I had a crush".... I'll never get to undress you" is one example of the candid and beautifully honest journey this album takes you on. Relationships although past are celebration's of life and what is at once great pain often brings us great streagth. Amy reminds us of this beauty and I thank her.

Brilliant Singer/Songwriter
I've been an "Amy fan" for a few years. One of my favorite songs of all time by any singer/songwriter is Amy's song called "Tropic of Cancer", which is on this CD. Amy writes such incredible lyrics and melodies, and her voice is gorgeous. Can't wait to say, "I knew her when..."

Inspirational
Excellent assortment of original poems and music that avoids the cliches we hear so much of these days from more established artists. Amy's attention to detail has resulted in a solidly produced debut CD. "Movie Kind of Love" and "Us" are truly inspirational examples of her creativity.

The best of the decade
Every decade has its defining album and for this decade Amy Rachman's "Do You Imagine" is that album. Amy easily surpasses Alanis Morrisette and Liz Phair as the dominant female voice in music. More than that, however, Amy is one of the best singer/songwriters of this, or any generation.
