"Another fun Sunday night at The Burren Somerville, Mass."

". . .Amy Schmidt from Lincoln, Nebraska opened the show with a set of original tunes and she used a quite, graceful charm to win over the Sunday night crowd. Schmidt never asserted herself vocally or on her acoustic guitar. Instead, she let her music take its time and it grew on people. She laid it out like a huge landscape. Her music is like the great terrain of the Nebraska countryside she hails from, beautiful, expansive, and pristine.

Schmidt pulled gentle chords out of her acoustic on her fun, unwieldy and charming “Fireworks In The House.” She is confident enough in what she does that she doesn’t need a take charge approach at the microphone. Schmidt displayed an ethereal quality through out her set. That was pretty impressive for her first day in Boston." - Bill Copeland Music News

Amy Schmidt sings and plays a 5 stringed guitar. She has performed across the USA, UK, Germany, and Austria in support of her latest release, 'Restless Things'. Schmidt has since joined the independent music collective A-Reaction Records. With a focus on songwriting (she won her first songwriting contest in the fifth grade), Schmidt is influenced by female singer-songwriters of the 90's, and is interested in emotional songs with lyrical depth. She first performed her songs after a car crash in New Zealand. When her car was towed to the nearest town, a musician spotted her with a guitar, struck up a conversation, and she soon become a weekly singer at the local bar. Schmidt's single, 'Where You Are', won the 2009 Tune My Life song search and received live radio and TV performances. The accompanying music video has been featured in schools as far away as Stirling Scotland, where Schmidt visited and performed a concert. In 2011 she began collaborating with cellist Conner Giles. The duo hope to release a new album in the coming year with a more evolved and complex sound.
