      Amy, you sounded awesome so whatever mike system you used was really effective. You all seemed relaxed and having fun, which is exactly what you're like when I've seen you perform at WinterSongs. So nice job. Hope the recording is going well and you're psyched about how things are sounding.....looking forward to hearing it all. Bonnie O'Donnell

      Pretty cool concept, but I know quite a few people could not link up to the service after paying for the broadcast. Among them was Amy's own parents.

      Amy Soucy's concert was AMAZING! It was joyous and beautiful. Her lyrics, melodies, harmonies and beautiful voice and spirit carried me away and opened my heart. She also engaged with her on-line audience with incredible multi-tasking dexterity and humor. Loved it!

Born in small town New Hampshire and raised in the wintery suburbs of Detroit, New York chanteuse Amy Soucy grew up in a musical family (a sax-playing father and brothers who played tuba, guitar, and bass). Amy began singing and performing at an early age in choirs and youth theater and became one of the first graduates of Michigan's only magnet high school for the performing arts. She went on to receive her Bachelor's Degree in Musical Theater Performance, and hightailed it to New York City shortly thereafter, where she continued to multi-task as an actor/singer/dancer on tour, in regional theaters, and in the dark and dusty theaters of New York.

Though the lure of the footlights was fun, she couldn't shake the recurring vision of herself singing solo, guitar in hand. Prompted by personal stories and a gift for melody and imagery, in 2001 she heeded the whispers of her heart and began writing original songs; then workshopping and performing them. in 2008 Amy formed a partnership with Catskills' singer/songwriter James Krueger, and their musical travels took them from house concerts to listening rooms, to public radio across the Northeast. Gifted with a versatile, powerful and fluid voice, Amy has performed, recorded, written and harmonized with a wide variety of musical groups artists, including powerhouse singer/songwriters Penny Nichols and Sloan Wainwright; NYC's favorite Japanese gypsy-folk band, Kagero; Comedy Central artist Stephen Lynch; and many more. She recently moved to Beacon, NY after 20 years in New York City's creative cauldron.

Amy Soucy’s debut album, "This River" takes listeners on a soulful journey through a lush landscape of life, love and earth. The album is full of timeless, poetic songwriting, soaring melodies and shimmering harmonies — from the catchy opener “Little Wooden Boat” and the haunting heartbreak of “Winter Man” to the tender power of the closing title track.

Produced by guitarist Stephen Murphy (Sloan Wainwright), This River includes vibrant harmony arrangements by Penny Nichols and features the musical talents of Fred Arcoleo, Sharon Goldman and Glen Roethel, and Matt Kanelos. Stephen's production wraps itself seamlessly around the songs, and Amy's expressive, versatile voice — at once comforting, powerful and poised - assures us everything will work out in the end.

"Right from the first note, this project is a stunner, with Amy's powerful and angelic voice at the very center shining brightly.... If I had to describe this record with only one word, the word would be ENCHANTING!"
— Sloan Wainwright
