With a background of training in classical music, Amy is known for writing unique, beautifully melodic and elegant new age piano music.  After releasing her first CD entitled First Dance in 1999 and receiving two national songwriting awards from that album, she has since released five additional albums.  Heard worldwide on internet and broadcast radio stations and released internationally, her music has consistently appeared in the top of the new age music charts. Amy is an artist on the popular internet radio station, Whisperings - Solo Piano Radio, Pandora and eScapesTV, a HD satellite and cable television network.  In addition, her music can be found on Music Choice Soundscapes, and has appeared in NBA TV Specials, a compilation CD by Aulos Media of Seoul, Korea, a private label CD for the Spa Rosseau at The Rosseau, a JW Marriott Resort and Spa in Ontario, Canada, and numerous other independent licensing projects worldwide.  

Amy's music has also received a following overseas. In September of 2011 Jingo Records based in Taiwan began releasing Amy's albums into the Asian market. To date they have released three of Amy's albums, with the fourth scheduled for release in 2014.  Jingo Records has also included several songs on other compilation albums in Asia.   

Album credits include her most recent February 2013 release, On Water.  Mastered by Grammy award winning Engineer Brett Huus, On Water is based on the stunningly beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior and surrounding Great Lakes.  On Water spent five months in the new age music charts Top 25, seven months in the Top 100, and was Number 41 in Zone Music Reporter's Top 100 Airplay Chart for all new age music in 2013.  Tracks from the On Water CD were ranked Number Seven on Music Choice Soundscapes in July of 2013, and to date, On Water remains on Amazon's Best Seller's List.
