Autumn Sky is an award-winning, multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter from Sacramento, CA. At twenty-two years old, she has been playing to the crowds of Sacramento for just over four years and garnered much local acclaim for her lively and engaging shows, as well as her debut EP and album, Diminutive, Petite EP (2007) and All Which Isn't Singing (2008.) A local indie darling in her hometown, her dynamic shows (for which she, also a talented visual artist, designs and constructs matching stage sets,) have gathered an intensely loyal following and reviews such as "the brilliant splendor of the vocals held the audience captivated and gave me goose bumps," (Laura Winn, The SF Examiner, 2009.)
She has been invited to play at such events as the California State Fair, the Sacramento New Years Festival, The Concert in the Park series, Macy's at the Roseville Galleria, The Boardwalk, Sacrameto State College and the Crest Theatre. Her songs have reguarly appeared and been featued on such local stations as 90.3 KDVS, 100.5 The Zone and 98 Rock's Local Licks.
Autumn was nominated for a Sammie in 2009, and won the Outstanding Singer-Songwriter and Readers Choice award in 2010. She also won the coveted Best Acoustic Artist award in the Sac Show Awards in 2009 and won for Best Indie Act in 2010. She has also been honored in such publications as Style, where they named her 2010's Favorite Local Musician, and also Sacramento News and Review's "100 Most Interesting/Influential People in Sacramento" article from 2010.
She was most recently signed to an indie offshoot label from Capitol, Cinemalight Music Group, in November of 2009 right after her win in the Sac Show Awards. She chose to leave the label and go independent in August 2010 and has recently begun work on her highly inticipated sophomore album, The Hallelujah Chorus. It's release is slated for late spring or early summer of 2011.
Her unique style mixes pitch-perfect and deeply emotive vocals with indie and pop sensibilities, setting her apart among a sea of singer/songwriters with a mix that manages to entice both young and old with catchy hooks and carefully crafted lyrics.
