Amber Rubarth won the Grand Prize in the 2010 NewSong Mountain Stage Contest, giving her the great opportunity to record her upcoming release with Grammy-Award winning producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon), followed by a performance on NPR’s Mountain Stage. Her songs have already attracted enthusiastic praise from NPR's All Songs Considered, The Huffington Post, BBC Radio, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and a Sun Studio Session now airing nation-wide on PBS.
At 21 years old, Amber decided to quit her career as a chainsaw sculptor in Nevada in order to pursue music. She taught herself guitar, started playing open mics, and began touring throughout the US, Europe and Japan. New fans told their friends, and soon her songs had received over 1.5 million plays on MySpace. Many of her concerts started selling out and she was asked to share the stage with such greats as Loudon Wainwright III, Colin Hay, Martin Sexton and Lisa Loeb. Rubarth now composes for films as well, most recently composing all music with Paul Brill for the highly acclaimed Sundance Film Festival winner "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work." She is also one half of Brooklyn's buzz band The Paper Raincoat, an iTunes Indie Spotlight feature.
