A message from Amie: Dear friends, if you want to play sample clips of my music on this page and you have a connection speed of anything other than normal dial-up (56kbs) please click the 'purple button' - PLAY ALL SONGS hi-fi broadband. You can then skip to the song you would like to sample. The sound quality will be greatly improved if you use this method. If you click on the individual track title you will hear a mono, 40kbs version of the song which will sound barely reminiscent of the original recording. Thanks for understanding. Amie Sassano is one of the hottest new singer/songwriters to emerge from America's Heartland. Her music will take you places that few other female artists have gone before. Casting Shadows is a powerful debut album that mixes modern rock and roll with sophisticated pop. It is hard hitting original music with a sound that is distinctively Midwest, USA. The appeal of Amie's music is three fold - compelling lyrics, sexy vocals, and radio friendly hooks. She will touch your heart with the ballad 'Belong' and then rip it out with her hard-hitting rocker 'What You Want To See'. Her approach is simple, honest and always straight from the gut. Every cut on Casting Shadows is as infectious as a kid with Chicken Pox, and Amie's vibrato-flecked vocals make the album utterly unique. In a time when lip-syncing, 'image only' performers fill the airways with the same old repackaged songs, Amie's incredible vocal presence will illustrate that talent no longer has to be faked. She is 'the girl next door' who can kick your ass and then help you cope - all in one album. Her music is fresh and relevant and when you pick up a copy of Amie Sassano's Casting Shadows you'll find out what her fans already know: THIS CHICK ROCKS.
