Amy Petty will Open the Newmarket Farmers' Market Saturday 9/5
Amy Petty will be opening the Newmarket Farmers' Market September 5th Saturday at 9:15 a.m.
Born of the DNA of Rock and Roll and heavily influenced by classical music, Amy Petty’s sound and songwriting is a compelling, complex and original soundscape that weaves a lush tapestry of folk, pop, rock and blues ballad.
As the daughter of the soundman for the popular Detroit-area cover band Stonebridge, and surrounded by people who loved the music of Yes, Boston, Queen and The Scorpions, Amy’s ear developed both an appreciation for and an ability to create complex harmonies and layered vocals.
Classically trained, Amy graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Voice Performance from Oakland University in Rochester MI, where she received numerous awards and honors, sang lead roles in several operas, and sang with the Michigan Opera Theater, Meadowbrook Theater, the Pontiac-Oakland Symphony and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
See Amy perform in the video below at the Press Room in Portsmouth.
Art, mystery, and spirituality influence and infuse her poignant songs. These sonic canvases showcase the heartfelt emotion behind her lyrics and provide a foundation over which her voice and choral harmonies soar. Often compared to Sarah McLachlan, Eva Cassidy, Alanis Morrisette and Jonatha Brooke, Amy Petty has a signature voice and style both familiar and oh-so-new. Hear her music here.
Since moving to New Hampshire, Amy has performed at numerous venues, including The Stone Church in Newmarket, NH, The Skybar in Somerville, MA, The Maple Room in Lewiston, ME, The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH, Clark University, Berklee College of Music and Boston University among others.
Amy’s debut CD, Mystery Keeps You, was produced and engineered by musical powerhouse Jacob Detering (Bonnie Raitt), and featuring spectacular performances by R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow, Peter Mayer), Eric Grossman (K’s Choice), and others on the Red Pill label. For more information, contact Amy.
The Newmarket Farmers' Market is open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Stone Church parking lot through October 10th.
