Amy Martin at Pale Fire Brewing Co.
Thursday, August 19th
Amy Martin has been a performing musician and vocalist in the Shenandoah Valley for the last decade— most notably with her Alternative Bluegrass band, Many Nights Ahead. Through the years with the band, Amy has written music that exceeded the bounds of Alternative Bluegrass and officially launched her solo career in releasing her first self-titled singer/songwriter album in March of 2020 which was made possible by the thousands of dollars raised through community support. In April 2021, Amy released her latest single called, “Sweet Virginia” — a song about the realization that it was time to move West. Amy relocated to Boulder, Colorado in April of 2021 to continue her passion of sharing and making music with others. Amy’s voice has been compared to many of the greats: Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt, Martina McBride, and Brandi Carlisle.
Reviewer, Cheers to the Vikings, said this about “Sweet Virginia”: “[Amy has] one of the best Americana voices we’ve heard in months! [She is] so original and [her] vocal performance is more than professional which shows how talented [she is]. The production is beautiful and there is a great level of songwriting that shines up through this record.”
