(Denver, CO, USA)
“The healer told me that I had cancer because I wasn’t fulfilling what my soul needed. I was, in her words, a flower in the desert that had no water. I was starving for something to feed my soul and I needed to make a change. I needed to express myself. I needed to create and I needed to put it out there. The most important thing she said to me is that not everyone is ready to hear what I have to put out there. Don’t worry about it. The people that are, are the ones I’m playing for.” - Amy Kress
Life is what happens between the lines and at times it’s hard to handle much less share with others. All of the great artists manage to bridge this gap though and Amy Kress is one of few the with this unique gift. Kress is the unlikely star; the mother, the wife, the survivor, and her story is an inspiring one.
They say that it’s always darkest before the dawn and sometimes it takes a traumatic experience to set us on our true paths. After a life of flirting with music but never committing herself fully to it, Amy was forced to re-evaluate it’s role in her life by the discovery that she had breast cancer in the Spring of 2011. The possibility that she might not get the chance to share her talents with the world along with the foreboding prescriptions of an energy healer compelled her to recommit herself to her true passion and the results are stunning.
Forgoing the smoke and mirrors that many modern artists choose to cloak their messages in, Amy’s songs speak directly to the heart of her listeners about a variety of real life topics. From the longings of the heart, to unrequited desire, to the power of hope, Amy’s powerful stylings gives voice to the feelings of many.
