Amy's songs display a veracity and rawness that is uniquely her own.
The sweet, sad longing and play of words and phrases, delivered in a voice from days far gone; reaching through the ages and channeled through. Amy Nelson began her music career as an old time banjoist, singing songs older than the hills. As time wore on, she began to dedicate herself to not only the preservation of the folk music she became known for, but by writing songs that reflected her own view of the world too. 1st place winner of the Ship and Anchor song competition, numerous radio play for her recordings, and marked as a festival stand out, Amy's songs display a veracity and rawness that is uniquely her own.
Amy's debut album 'Educated Woman' released in 2019 was named top ten albums of the year by Beatroute magazine and CJSW.
