Amys roots began in Boston, but soon her family moved on to the south. She grew up in Abilene, Texas and there began her journey into songwriting and touring. Combining the thoughtful depth of Boston and the distinctive Texas style, she engages audience through catchy melodies and lyrics that explore refreshing truths about life, love, and spirituality.

One of Amys singles, Almighty God (Here I Am) was included in Provident Music Distributions 2004 PULSE CD project. Amy was cited on the project as one of the "Emerging New Artists for 2005". Additionally, Rocketown Records invited Amy to record on its Gloria Christmas album in the fall of 2004 along side produced by Charlie Peacock and artist such as Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith were featured on the project. Amy has opened for numerous nationally touring acts such as Shane and Shane, Andrew Peterson, Shaun Groves, and others. Amy currently resides in Nashville, TN.

Lyrics

Chasing Greenlights

Written By: Amy Stroup, Steve Savage, Paul Buno

©2006 Amy Stroup
Verse:
I call you to come alive
I call your soul to life
I call you to get up and rise
I call you to leave it behind

Pre Chorus:
Live breathe Drink Feed
Rest Dream Sing Scream

Chorus:
I’m chasing the mystery Chasing the dream

Feeling the freedom To see what I see in you

What I see with you

Runnin on empty tryin to pass

Streets are getttin sticky But I’m still drivin fast

Chasin the green lights

Verse 2
I wish I could get lucky and win the prize

Feel like I’m loosin’ I don’t know why

Guess I’m moving in my own time

My own time

I think I Love You

Written By: Amy Stroup, Steve Savage, Paul Buno

I Think I love you
By Amy stroup

I know you thin k its strange
To see me walk away When I said I love

I know you can’t see my pain
i know you feel rage
I know you

Pre chorus:
But there is a haunting in your soul
That makes your love unpredictable
I know you love me That not what I can’t see
But do you love you

Chorus:
Friend my best friend I think I love you
Friend my best friend I think I love you
Will you love you, too

Your memory lingers with me at at night
I can barley sleep, I call for you

You just sip it away
surrounded by the pain of others

Pre chorus:
But there still is a haunting in your soul
Makes you love irresistible
Your still easy to love even when darkness hovers

chorus
