Born in Baltimore and raised on the Chesapeake Bay, Amy Andrews was brought up on the sounds of The American Songbook and Motown, but spent years training for a career in musical theatre before she began writing her own music and taking to the road.
After an auspicious move to Georgia, which served as her home base for the better part of a decade while she cut her teeth as a songwriter, Amy is now back home in the mid-Atlantic – a welcome respite for this troubadour, who is on the road for 150+ shows and 52 weeks out of the year.
A wildly talented artist, known for brilliant performances, stunning vocals, and unassuming wit and candor on stage, Amy has received national (US) press, chatted with radio and tv hosts across the country (US), and toured extensively across the States, Canada, and the UK – with festivals and shows in big cities and long-forgotten gold rush towns from Florida’s 30A Songwriter Festival to Alaska’s Folk Festival, sharing stages and supporting artists from Gregory Alan Isakov to Stu Larsen and more.
After laying low the last few years, she is excited to be back on the road, and performing for you lovely folks in Oxford!
