Live: Emphatic at the Attic
Amy Steinberg is a passionate whirlwind of musical comedy, poetry and downright lunacy. To witness her performing is an enthralling and inspiring experience. In the blink of an eye Steinberg can take you from a deep, dirty blues belt, swing you into a slow jazz sweetness, flip you into pop song heaven, and then twist your mind her rhythmically compelling and spiritually charged poetry. She gets under your skin and into your heart... A talent you will never forget. She accompanies herself on both guitar and piano while singing, talking, laughing, sharing, and dreaming. This is not a girl to miss, as she is constantly being looked at by labels, touring all over the country, and getting ready to produce her sixth independent release. 'Traversing raw folk, blues and spoken-word poetry, Amy Steinberg is an independent musician who has evolved beyond the confines of the coffeehouse club scene. Though Ani DiFranco's influence is prevalent, Steinberg's bedazzling voice rings with the undeniable depth of a soulful Janis Joplin. Pairing this unique style with poetically potent lyrics, this artist constructs melodies that are consistently memorable.' - Music Connection L.A. 'Extraordinary talent and flair for writing memorable songs brimming with irresistible choruses and thought-provoking lyrics.' - Rag Magazine.
