Sunday Matinee on Fire
A self-taught pianist, Amy Jo Lomas began composing instrumental piano pieces at the age of 15, shortly after the death of her Mother. Inspired by the gift of life and inevitable reality of death, she has never stopped creating music. 'I cherish every breath...' says the songwriter, 'you never know when it will be your last day.' By listening to Amy Jo, one can hear her love for Jazz as well as her influences from electronic music. Her voice, akin to Sade, paired with the ambient beats reminiscent of Everything But The Girl, showcase this new artist's superb songwriting ability. Bouncing back and forth between America's two coasts, Amy Jo has worked in a variety of musical settings over the years. From performing her original music to working in the studio, she has been on a continuous quest to put forth her unique sound the way she envisions it. After making the final trek from Boston to Los Angeles in the summer of 2005, Amy Jo set out to take her musical career into her own hands. In the Fall of 2006 she began studying at Musician's Institute in Hollywood. Since then she set up her home recording studio where she began the first stages of recording and producing her debut EP which was released June 20 2007.
