The best kept secret in music


"KC Music Scene"

No nonsense approach to neo-folk rock song writing & performing. She is Lennon/Dillon-esque with a hint of 60’s psychedelic and a dash today’s alternative country rock. “Last Things First” is a song that sets the pace for the album & the show and with some amazingly vocal passages. “Georgy Girl” has ‘single’ written all over it. - Blake Trexler

"On Line"

“I don’t pass out praise lightly... but her writing is by far the best I’ve seen on the local scene for months. Amy has the potential to reach a level of writing that the others couldn’t imagine.” - Garrett Dawson

"Music Web"

“Very much enjoyed listening to your songs…I find them truly moving, well executed and written from the heart.” - Chuck Hoaby

Those who have experienced Amy’s music agree that her passionate acoustic/electric folk inspired alternative rock takes you on a journey of the soul.

The Kansas City area musician developed a strong desire to write at a young age. Influenced by the deep pureness of the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Lennon’s solo work, Amy is an innovator in her own right.

Undaunted by a predominantly male arena talent, she told herself at the young age of 11, “So what if I’m a girl, I want to be like them… I want to rock!!”. She is confident that her music is surfacing at the perfect time.

In 1998 Amy began refining her skills by joining with the KC Songwriters Circle & doing small personal performances. With many years of “trial & error” song and lyric writing behind her, Amy Saia is finally arriving. Seemingly out of nowhere she is already receiving high praise from local industry favorites and review forums. Amy Saia’s debut project “SOULDIER”, is brimming with an undeniable flavor of alternative-folk rock, a ‘just-can’t-put-a-finger-on-it’ vocal style with a heart & soul lyrical treatment.

Music has always meant a lot to this sensitive artist. As a child she used to escape the pain of living under the roof of a controlling and sometimes abusive father by listening to records and the radio. “Music has always meant something more to me, a profound meaning”.

Amy’s husband Scott, who is also a musician, engineer and producer built a studio in the basement of their brand new home and explained it was for her to record the project. The both of them spent almost a year laying down the tracks for what is being released under Chilaha Records as “SOULDIER”.

After playing small venues and acoustic only support gigs, Amy has hit the road with a full 4 piece classic rock band to faithfully reproduce and promote the release of the "SOULDIER" album.

"We believe in the material, the crowds dig the tunes and I love performing it too."

It proves the old adage that, ‘if you work hard good things will happen… and if you believe, then they already have’.”
