Amy Meyers has been a popular San Francisco performer since her move there in '91. She has fronted The Plain Folk Band, Girls! Girls! Girls!, Amy Meyers Trio, and The Amy Meyers Band and released 4 CD's. In the mid 90's, Amy Meyers left the popular Bay Area Folk/Country/Rock band, Plain Folk to pursue a new road of musical expression. In 1997, she released The Wheel, which was warmly received by critics and gave her the confidence to continue with her music. In May of 1998, she was a featured artist on KFOG and a finalist of the Lilith Fair Talent Search. In 1999, she released the EP, Open Road, which clearly illustrated both musical growth and a willingness to experiment. Meyers' music is certainly folk-based, with a distinct pop sensibility, due in large part to her beautiful vocal style. Her playing grooves, her lyrics are unassumingly poignant and come from a voice that is deep, rich, dynamic, and pure. Her songs are emotionally honest slices of daily life that don't attempt to mythologize or mask the good and bad things we do to each other. She has spent her entire life in the performing arts as an actress and musician, hales from Dallas, and is an accomplished musician on piano, guitar, cello, drums, bass, and a little mandolin. While influenced by artists such as Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Shawn Colvin, and Sheryl Crow, Amy's style is uniquely her own. Crossing is the 4th release from this San Francisco based artist. HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: Emmett played me most of your CD, Crossing. I like your voice, and the way you put tunes together. Cool. About Amy's CD's. I ordered all three earlier this week. I received them today and I am completely amazed! They are really good - all three of them. I've been listening to them all day long. I would highly recommend these CD's. I wasn't expecting much but they are really good. Wow!!! I received your CD's in the mail today. I took your advice and I'm listening to the Wheel now. I started from the beginning and I'm only two songs in (actually, the third - Let's Go just started). I am amazed! This is GREAT!!! You have an incredible voice! It is nothing like what I expected. Great job! Once again, I'm really enjoying The Wheel. I'm now on I know This Girl. I've listened to each of the CD's twice now - some of the songs 4 or 5 times. I really like all of them so I don't think I will be able to give you a favorite. If I had to pick one - it would probably be Open Road (CD & song) but that could change. I took The Wheel home last night to let my wife listen to it. She liked it also.
