Biography

Savoring every influence in her life from the quirkiness of Wes Anderson’s film “Grand Budapest Hotel” and many great musicians like Bjork, SOHN, and Death Cab For Cutie, Amy Kress has been writing songs since she was 8 years old. Once losing 12 years of music in an accidental hard drive crash, she’s no stranger to shifting gears quickly, along with everything else she’s faced the last few years. As much as it pained her to let go of the years of music embedded on that hard drive, she focused on writing during the morning and, of course, late night hours as well. The people in her life, the interchange of experiences with them, and watching the games they play with each other is what she finds most inspirational. Never wanting to be in a spot where she’s not working on new music, the emotional upheaval and a stark change in her life has left her at a point point where she’s motivated by creating new material.Born in Canada, Amy was an Aramco Brat living in Saudi Arabia with her family from the time she was five till the age of 12. She moved to the United States in 2001 during the unforgettable week of 9/11; settling in Colorado, she loved the state so much that she hasn’t left. Not surprising since wonderful blue skies, mountain peaks, and good vibes are pleasantly abundant.

Recently published by Huffington Post Denver and soon to have a selection of wickedly fun dance pop songs in a new lineup, Amy is currently filtering through about an album and a half of new material. As far as influential people in her life, Glenn Sawyer, owner of The Spot Studio, who found her on SoundCloud was at the top of her list. She greatly admires the hours he puts into his work, and he has been a real inspiration with his continued encouragement. From performing at the Meadowlark and Denver Syntax Physic Opera to playing intimate performances at the Larimer Lounge and The Walnut Room, it’s the live interaction from fans that moves Amy Kress to perform at her peak. A great musician who takes her craft seriously, her recent heart-felt performance at Herman’s Hideaway took the Mile High City by storm.

Deep down inside, she finds it a bit difficult to express herself in a way that may captivate someone, yet many are turning their heads and giving attention to this Mile High artist that always takes special care to inject humor and a dose of healthy reality in all of her songs. On her debut album “Secret Music,” every song she wrote was her favorite, only to be pleasantly eclipsed by the next. The big-sounding chorus on “Signs,” and the wide appeal of songs like “The Crush” and “Saturday” are winning listeners over by leaps and bounds. Loving to puzzle listeners with the mixing of words and concepts, Amy enjoys taking on the brain teaser of her own to craft a finished product that represents everything she does to listeners. As far as the diverse Colorado Music scene, she loves that there is a sense of community in Denver, and the same faces you run into a lot have true support for one another. Also drawing influence from other greats like Stateless, Morning Parade, Joywave, and Civil Twilight, she has painted a few pieces that decorate her childrens’ rooms, other precious domains that are closest to her heart. Excited to tour this summer, she is looking to the future for inspiration, and new lyrical material, but will likely be more than happy to return to those blissfully blue skies.
