Gifted with a versatile, powerful and fluid voice, chanteuse Amy Soucy grew up in a musical family (a sax-playing father, brothers who played tuba, guitar, and bass). Singing since she was a wee one in choirs and youth theater, she attended a performing arts magnet school (think suburban Detroit version of the Fame school) and received a Bachelor's degree in musical theater performance.
Shortly thereafter she hightailed it to New York City, where she continued to multitask as an actor/singer/dancer on tour, in regional theaters, and in the dark and dusty theaters of the city. Though the lure of the footlights was fun, at some point she became disillusioned. She turned to yoga for her sanity — and then made that her vocation. But she never lost her passion for singing, and could never seem to shake a recurring vision of herself singing with a band, guitar in hand. Prompted by personal stories and a gift for melody and imagery, she heeded the whispers of her heart and began writing original songs, then workshopping and performing them.
Amy formed a partnership with Catskills singer/songwriter James Krueger in 2008, and their musical travels took them from house concerts, to listening rooms, to public radio stations across the Northeast. Amy has also performed, recorded, harmonized and co- written with a variety of artists whose music stretches across genres and reflects the diversity of New York City's cauldron of creativity: Comedy Central artist/singer- songwriter Stephen Lynch; folk-pop muse Sharon Goldman; Rally Folk artist Fred Arcoleo; Japanese-gypsy-folk band Kagero; Argentinian composer/guitarist Ruben Gonzalez; and many others.
She released her debut album, This River on June 6, 2015, produced by Stephen Murphy.
