The very talented Amy Montgomery performing in Belfast’s Mandela Hall. Hailing from Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, Amy Montgomery is a young singer/songwriter with the most mesmerising vocal sound which channels the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick. Amy is nothing if not diverse in her musical approach and her bohemian style effuses all the classic hallmarks of the late 60’s beatnik culture. Her songwriting turns emotions like sadness, grief, anger, abandonment into expression and creativity and highlights how vulnerability can actually be a gateway to growth.
Her self-made recordings with local producer and musician Michael Mormecha, fuse styles ranging from eastern tinged alt-rock, poignant story telling though to energetic soul and blues. Safe is not a word in her vocabulary. Amy’s unique voice has been carved from relentless busking throughout Ireland and her new single Dangerous will be released worldwide via 7Hz Recordings/ADA on March 2nd 2018. The release will be accompanied by the “b” side Terminal Velocity which showcases a daring approach to electronica via its cinematic and atmospheric sound scape. See Fujifilm X100F launch.
