Guided by an ethos of lyrical depth and an accessible, folk sensibility, singer/songwriter Amy Allen of South Portland, Maine, got her start playing small-time gigs in local pubs at the ripe age of eleven. Now a New England music mainstay, she released her debut EP, Honey, in 2010 to great acclaim, taking home Portland Phoenix’s “Best New Act” and “Best Female Vocalist” awards.
In 2011 her second EP, Neptune, drew apt comparisons to power-house female vocalists such as Norah Jones and Taylor Swift. Since then, Amy has appeared on the second season of NBC’s The Voice, received the prestigious SESAC’s Young Artist Award for the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and recently released a cover of Robin Thicke’s summer smash hit, “Blurred Lines”, complete with music video, which has received over 13,000 YouTube hits and great enthusiasm from the public, spinning on radio stations across the country. Opening for acts the likes of Sugar Ray, Lifehouse, Ben Taylor, Jonathan Edwards and Chris Young, the effervescent Amy seeks inspiration in the everyday, whether it be in the classroom, on the stage, or involvement in her community, pursuing growth and creativity at each turn, offering relatable music that is both impactful and uplifting.
