The Amy Otey Story

amygrey SING FROM THE HEART is my motto and this is the launch of my solo career as a recording artist! Growing up in the Midwest, I would spend hours in my room  singing along with my favorite artists of the time like Linda Ronstadt, Juice Newton and Anne Murray. I loved all kinds of music but was always drawn back to my basic roots of songs that made me feel something. I married a piano man & songwriter, Alex, and we set about making beautiful music together after working hours. Our first son was born extremely prematurely and this life threatening  experience led us on the path to create meaningful  family music.

The “Miss Amy” brand and music was created to help foster health and wellness for our next generation. Miss Amy’s  Fitness Rock & Roll, was Nominated for a Grammy in 2011. We have also collaborated with other artists on other Nominated and a Grammy winning CDs in the family space including All About Bullies Big & Small (2011 Grammy Winning Best Children’s Album), Healthy Food For Thought (2010 Grammy Nominated Best Spoken Word) and Action Moves People (IMA winner 2014).  I love collaborating with other artists!

Along the way we have been honored to perform at major festivals, schools, museums and even The White House Egg Roll event. In 2013 I released an eclectic Americana independent record with my band, Off The Map With Miss Amy with the title single Angels Riding Shotgun. The title song written to honor soldiers was well received on international radio stations. Returning to my roots  I’ve continued writing and singing music that comes from my heart. Through the Grammy organization, I became familiar with the work of Doc Holiday. What a thrill to work with this legendary producer and his A-Team in Nashville’s iconic Quad studio!It is my hope that you enjoy this new solo music and that it will speak to your heart as well. Drawing inspiration from Anne Murray who earned a Juno for Best Children’s Album in 1979 and went on to become one of the legends of country music, I believe I have a huge amount to contribute in the Americana Music space, with the years of music I’ve developed and the experience I’ve gained along the way. Thanks for following me along this amazing adventure and listening to my music!  Stay tuned for more good stuff as I SING FROM THE HEART!
