Amy Rachman was born in 1974 and raised in New Jersey. A piano-, guitar-, and flute-player, she has been a musician since the age of 4. With an innate zeal for the written word, she taught herself to read before she began school and at age 6 she began to involve herself in creative writing projects. During her youth she won several national writing contests.

Amy began formal voice training at a very young age. Before barely reaching teen-age, she wrote her first song, Look Up At Me, which she ultimately recorded at the age of 15. The song was aired on 97.5 WPST's Unsigned Heroes at age 16. Amy's second original song, Where I'm Bound, was recorded at age 16 as well.

Throughout high school Amy continued to write songs, many of which she performed in various coffee house showcases. When not on stage she was intently writing, creating, arranging, and producing her own instrumental, background vocal, and lead vocal tracks. During her senior year she won an award for having written and performed a song in Spanish, which earned her statewide recognition.

After high school Amy attended Indiana University, home of one of the world's most renowned music schools. During her freshman year she performed in the musical Hair. That same year she was appointed as cantor for the university's High Holiday services, a position she served throughout the rest of her undergraduate schooling. From time to time she made guest appearances at local parties as a cover band vocalist. Meanwhile, she continued to tend to her original material and to perform at various venues, including coffee houses, as well as annual karaoke contests, which she won several years in a row.

Amy's performance venues range from Indy to the Indies: While on vacation in St. Lucia, she won numerous vocalist contests, which prompted the island natives to honor Amy with the unprecedented title of "Resident Artist." Amy has also performed at her more local venues, such as Brooklyn's Grand Central Bar, Bliss Café of Kew Gardens, the Theater Café of Forest Hills, Waltz Café of Astoria, Mood Restaurant of Kew Gardens, and Makor, located in New York's Upper West Side.

Amy has recently completed an album, which features ten of the hundreds of songs she has written throughout almost two decades. The album was produced by Art Hays, a former instrumentalist of Matchbox Twenty, and is expected to be released by the fall. Amy has also completed writing her first fiction novel, which corresponds with a supplementary sound track, written and performed by her.

In addition, Amy has just signed on to write for Songs of Love. Founded by friend and fellow neighborhood songwriter, John Beltzer, the organization was created to custom-write songs for children who are chronically ill. Amy further combines her sense of creativity and empathy with her recently earned master of arts degree in speech-language pathology, helping advance those who are communicatively challenged.

Amy maintains the ability to relate to a wide demographic, although her genre is anything but typical. Influenced by adult contemporary, classic rock, new age, folk, and pop, Amy's music satisfies all of the senses.

Amy resides in Queens, New York. She continues to write, record, and sustain a remarkable level of intimacy with her steadily growing fan base.
