Pop-folk songwriter Amy Curl entertains with musings on office dress codes, ill-behaving attorneys, the conundrum of disappearing pants, and the fine art of surviving relationships. Named Songwriter of the Year by her department at work, Amy also earned two nominations--Best Acoustic Artist and Best Acoustic Album for mixed bag--at the 2005 Madison Area Music Awards, while her song 'ready to wear' placed second in the pop/rock category of the 2005 Midwest Song Contest. Amy's music delights and engages listeners as they lounge with a latte or a lemon shot. Independently released solo CDs showcase Amy's lovely voice and thoughtful lyrics. Her most recent release, mixed bag, is also her first studio project and includes a mix of solo piano and acoustic guitar work alongside a variety of additional percussion, cello, and electric guitar. Piano-based twenty different tries features the bulk of Amy's live show material, while the reissued CD version of guitar-based convincingly repentant includes her ode to the oft-uncelebrated "Pharmacy Technician." She has also recorded a collection of hymns, thy fire divine, which will be released in 2006. Amy began her musical journey at church, community festivals, weddings, and the obligatory recitals. After college, she traded central Illinois for Madison, Wisconsin and pursued songwriting as a form of cheap therapy. Now she writes for fun... and for world peace. Amy recommends walking, weightlifting, and yoga for all your body movement needs.
