Music should be personal, touching, fun, sad, elating; singer-songwriter Amber’s songs range from upbeat, quirky numbers to softer, sweeter tunes that grab at your heartstrings. Using piano and guitar accompaniment to weave stories, she makes honest and interesting music that crosses a gamut of moods and circumstances.
Amber’s style touches primarily on pop and folk genres. Story-telling is a definite passion and Amber draws influence from artists including Amelia Curran, Father John Misty (Josh Tillman), BOY, Daughter, Joe Purdy, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor and countless others, yet her classical piano training is ever-present. Auxiliary instruments including violin, viola, cello, trumpet, tuba, glockenspiel, melodica and others add a variety of additional colours to her musical palette.
Her collection of songs touch on subjects of love and loss, friendship, and wonderfully woven tales ranging in topics from ditzy girls, to a gypsy, to a grave robber, to an assassin and more.
