AMY MONTGOMERY: The first thing that grabs your attention about Irish singer songwriter Amy Montgomery (apart from her Bohemian look) is her raw and beautiful voice honed from relentless busking throughout Ireland. Her vocals seem to channel the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick whilst also acknowledging her all time favourite Alanis Morissette.

Working with well know NI producer/songwriter/musician Michael Mormecha (Drums) and Zach Trouton (Keys), the threesome deliver a fresh, edgy and original live performance.

Her first single Dangerous blissfully blends gently strummed acoustic guitars with soaring string arrangements and rich electric licks. It picked up plays across BBC Radio Ulster and spot plays on Bob Harris’s Radio 2 show.

 

She came on stage with all the attitude of Joan Jett. In feathered bra-top, leather-look leggings, war paint and biker jacket, this girl is ballsy. And she has the voice to match” Mandela Hall Review, Gigging NI June 2018

She has already been compared to Grace Slick and Janis Joplin, possibly because of the power of her voice, the free abandon with which she sings so naturally and her bohemian look. Tonight, many of the songs could have been lesser known songs of Fleetwood Mac and her gutsy, dreamy, melodic vocals are reminiscent of the legendary Stevie Nicks” National Rock Review, Feb 2018

The biggest and best surprise of the entire weekend was Amy Montgomery This lady has a huge voice with phenomenal power and she wasted no time in getting the crowd dancing. Playing as part of three piece who rotated between drums, guitar and keyboards, Montgomery didn’t give you the time or space to draw breath” Stendhal Festival Review, Aug 2018

“Astounding voice alert, Amy is a great sonic explorer in the tradition of Janis Joplin and John Martyn” BBC NI Across The Line
