"'Hot Stars in a Cold Sky' review"

"...She has an uncompromising lyrical command with a vocal intonation that effortlessly blends with her sultry finger-picking on the guitar...her voice is so delicately glazed over the top of whatever happens to be playing underneath...It’s hard to determine where one ends and the other begins..."
Chris Wood - www.nakeddwarf.com.au

"Hobart based singer-songwriter-guitarist Amy Kendall's debut maxi EP/mini LP boasts six tracks that are testament to her undeniable writing talent and a showcase for her lovely voice...'" - The Advocate


"Heritage, Redheads and Great New Talent"

Monday February 19th 2007
Heritage, Redheads & Great New Talent
.....I reckon that one of 936's best components is the live music we put to air. There's a big studio next door where musos collect daily to perform 'unplugged' direct to listeners; a great showcase for emerging talent, such as the Afternoon's first 'live' guest for 2007, Hobart-based singer-songwriter Amy Kendall. She performed two of her songs - 'Second Story' and 'Fireflies', and to my ear she's someone who'll be doing very, very well, very soon. If she's as successful as she deserves to be, you can say where you heard her first.

Bio

Hailing from a small town in NSW, Amy began writing and performing her own songs at the age of 13. With influences ranging from Sarah McLachlan, The Waifs, Clare Bowditch, Edie Brickell and Joni Mitchell, Amy has carved her own unique style from a blend of folk, roots and pop music.

Since moving to Tasmania in early 2005, Amy has been captivating Hobart audiences with her sweet, soulful voice, flowing guitar melodies and honest, down-to-earth songwriting style. Now a regular at Irish Murphy's and CBar @ The Waterfront, Amy has become a familiar face on the original music circuit, both in Hobart and across the state.

In 2006-2007 Amy held a residency at one-time Sandy Bay establishment Gilt Cafe and Restaurant, charming Friday night audiences and fostering a diverse and healthy music community through a variety of local support acts. She has also worked her magic on many a delighted punter at The Republic Bar, Alleycat Bar, Telegraph Hotel, Taste of Tasmania, Lark Distillery, Maginty's (Burnie), Brookfield Vineyard, D'Art Factory, Tasmanian Inn and many other local venues.

The rich stories which infuse Amy's heartfelt lyrics with such life and beauty have always been influenced by the natural environment. Whether it be a crisp, starry night or a gentle breeze on sunset, these inspirations - coupled with Amy's unique insights into life, love and relationships - set the scene for many of her songs, and often lead to entertaining between-song conversation in her live sets.

With her debut EP 'Hot Stars in a Cold Sky' released in November 2008, Amy's musical future is looking bright, and, with plans for an extensive interstate promotional tour, she is sure to continue capturing the hearts of music loving audiences everywhere.
