With a background in classical music, Amy is known for writing unique, beautifully melodic and elegant new age piano music. Heard worldwide on internet and broadcast radio stations and released internationally, Amy's music is consistently in the top of the new age music charts. Classically trained as a child, she chose to forego pursuing a career in classical music in favor of the freedom to create her own unique style of solo 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. Amy's music can be heard on Music Choice Soundscapes, the popular internet radio station - Whisperings - Solo Piano Radio, eScapesTV (a HD satellite and cable television network), and on Canadian cable television music channels.
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, beginning with Winter & Christmas, which was released under the title Castle in the Snow. Beautiful Quiet was released by Jingo Records in February of 2012, followed by August in the summer of 2012. Jingo Records has also included several songs on other compilation albums. Additional projects include 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 projects worldwide.
Album credits include her most recent February 2013 release, On Water, and her 2010 release entitled August, which received a nomination for 2010 Album of the Year in the Contemporary and Modern category on SoloPiano.com. August spent five months in the top 20 and seven months in the top 50 of the new age music charts at Zone Music Reporter's Top 100, reaching number 11 in June of 2011. August also received the honor of being number 37 in Zone Music Reporter's Top 100 Airplay Chart for new age music for all of 2011.
Earlier recordings include Winter & Christmas, which was nominated for Best Holiday Album at Zone Music Reporter's 2010 Music Awards, and was selected as Kathy Parsons CD pick of the month for November 2008 on Mainlypiano.com. Winter & Christmas reached number nine on the new age music charts Top 100 in December of 2010. The song Eve of Winter was in Whisperings top 100 for early 2010, and Midnight Snow was the third most popular track on Christmas Music 24/7's Jazz/Instrumental internet radio station for Christmas of 2009.
Her extremely popular original lullaby CD, Close Your Eyes, was released in 2003. Numerous songs off this album consistently ranked in "Whisperings Top 40". The track Drifting Starlight reached number one in October of 2005, A Mother's Prayer was in Whisperings Top 100 for 2008, and Begin to Dream was in Whisperings Top 100 for early 2010. Amy released a follow up lullaby album in November of 2010 entitled
