Not Amy released their first EP "Walking Shoes" in March 2013.



“Mi familia” is what vocalist Jen Borst calls her band, Not Amy. It is the same haven for the seasoned songwriters, Chad Bault and Navid Eliot, who form its core. Their ease and connection with one another show in every aspect of their performance and writing.

Prior to Not Amy, Navid helped to create the successful Seattle retro-pop band, Curtains For You, and had a prolific solo career in the Northwest. Chad Bault followed a similar path, touring both as a solo act, and as the front man of Portland's Train Go Sorry. Luck brought them together with Jen Borst, who completed the harmonic landscape; Mitch Sander (bass) and Shelby Cuyle (percussion) rounded out the trio’s sound, and the band was born.

Their debut EP, Walking Shoes, was released in March 2013. The sound was crafted in the sagebrush openness of Yakima wine-country; far from the hothouse atmosphere of a larger music scene, the music is fresh and unfettered by expectations. Chad and Navid trade song-writing duties, and the album is a perfect sample of the nuanced blending of styles that this collaboration creates. Influenced by traditional folk, garage rock and sweeping ballads, it nonetheless doesn't sound like anything but itself.
