Biography

With powerful hook laden Pop/Rock, Amy Hailstone invites you to experience songs that are soul-searching in their exploration of love, dreams, loss, and hope. As a singer, songwriter and guitarist, this artist invests her music with her whole heart. Amy's new album, Refuge, produced by Dan Strain, clearly demonstrates that this guitar slinger delivers her own unique sound and style.

Growing up as a sixth generation musician in Gillespie IL, Amy began to play the piano at five, and then as a teenager her passion for writing became apparent, as well as her obsession for playing the guitar.

Amy went on to study guitar and voice at Lewis and Clark College in Godfrey IL, and Music Tech in Minneapolis MN. After graduating Music Tech with honors, Amy fronted a cover ban and toured the United States non-stop for two years. In 2000 she started her own record label, New Tattoo Records, and released her debut album. Along with writing and singing the songs, she co-produced and played all of the guitars on the project. Touring throughout the Midwest as well as playing the Borders Book Store circuit in support of the CD helped her to earn a wide fan base. Promoting the record, securing gigs and distribution, also taught her how to balance art and commerce.

Amy's sunny and accessible personality is offset by the deep thinking, questioning side of her character. While these traits intermingle to create Amy's dynamic live performances, her songs allow her to identify with, and connect to her audience on an intimate level showing both her strength and vulnerability. Amy can throw down a fiery guitar lead one minute, and deliver an emotion drenched lyric the next; allowing her listeners to discover a confident, sexy, fun, artist on and off the stage, who is just enjoyable to be around.

Supernatural

Supernatural

Written by Amy Hailstone

I'm changing, I feel it in my bones
they're shifting, underneath my skin
and my blood is turning different colors
my love always makes you shudder

I can't explain the things that make the world go around
something inside of you speaks and answers are found

There's something going on
It's supernatural
no explanation found
we're standing on healing ground

Revealing confession in the wind
unfolding a melody of sin
recognizing universal law raining down on my weary soul

I can't explain the things that make the wold go around
something inside of you speaks and answers are found

chorus

Everything happens on time
and I guess that's alright
we're all just holding on tight

Don't Wanna Go

Written By: Amy Hailstone

Don't Wanna Go

Written by Amy Hailstone

Didn't you see me standing there
I was waiting outside
I watched you walk by
onto sunset with your rock star hair
and I'm still waiting

Maybe I'm a little bit shy
but that's alright 'cause I
I've got nothing but time on my hands

I don't wanna go home
I don't feel like being alone
don't wanna go
someplace familiar
I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go
It's late and I'm alone

Maybe I'll hand around Hollywood
and wait for the sun
or this empty feeling to be gone maybe I'll
drive through my head
and leave these thoughts on the road to San Fransciso

Chorus

I just wanted to talk to you not the
same thing I always to and I
I wanna see a new sunrise
I wanna see a new sunrise

chorus

High Wire

Written By: Amy Hailstone & Dan Strain

High Wire

Written by Amy Hailstone & Dan Strain

close your eyes
with every step you take
you leave the world behind
it's been so long since you've smiled
you must be getting so tired on the

High wire
careful not to fall
walking on a high wire
you just want to let go
you just want to let go

Just trust
you shouldn't worry anymore
'cause you can handle what may come
but you can't hide so why run
from what you've become on the

chorus

get you feet on the ground
walk yourself back into the now
take a look around, take a look around
everything can be, everything can be, everything can be
beautiful

chorus
