“Astounding voice alert, Amy is a great sonic explorer in the tradition of Janis Joplin and John Martyn” – BBC NI Across The Line
The first thing that grabs your attention about Irish singer songwriter AmyMontgomery (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 known 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. Ramsgate Festival of Sound is delighted to introduce this rising star.
