About Amy

Amy’s songs brings back to Christian music a depth of lyric and intricate artistry slightly lost in recent years. Her music is a beautiful hybrid of haunting and striking melodies set to lyrics that are made for fun listening and personal growth. Mirroring the artistic rebirth of musical integrity by artists such as Esperanza Spalding and Adele; Amy Savin’s approach is “less pitch correction and more singing”.

The winner of Drew Marshall’s “So You Think God Wants You To Sing”, hosted by celebrity judges including radio host Delilah, new artist Amy Savin enters the music scene as a highly decorated musician. In 2011 She picked up two spectacular GMA Covenant Awards nominations including Pop Contemporary Album of the Year, as well as Female Vocalist of the Year in 2012.  This was all the momentum needed for “the girl next door” to enter our living rooms (and iPods) here in the U.S.

Amy’s voice and songwriting harkens back to the stylings of Nicole Nordeman with the addition of an understated falsetto range not attempted since the quiet ballads of Rachael Lampa. Amy’s music is pleasantly unique thanks to her break-out vocal updrafts that pierce through tracks like “Hide Me”“Fly Robin”“Skylines”, and the Ed Cash smash “Hymn 177″.

Amy shatters the new trend of “just write the big hit single” with a beautifully balanced project from track 1 to 10. Amy recalls, “I remember as a fan, gravitating to just one artist or two at a time, and wrapping myself up in all of their music, not just one song. I am encouraged when listeners shed the ADD approach to singles (just bouncing from song to song), and dig into the other ‘chapters of the book’ an artist has written, so that there can be a relationship between them. Something that lasts longer than a few moments, and impacts far more deeply. I wrote this album to be absorbed and re-absorbed as a whole. If one of those album chapters happens to lend itself to radio audiences, that would just be amazing, too!”

Over the years Amy has collaborated with several artists including Leigh Nash (formerly from Sixpence None the Richer), Jodi King (now Love and the Outcome) and Mia Fieldes (Hillsong).

Amy has toured across Europe, Canada, and the United States.
