This site is currently being redesigned in advance of the Fall 2017 Release of Amy Clarke’s first full-length studio album “A New Way” ~ thanks for your patience 🙂

A soulful songstress and classically trained pianist with powerful percussion skills, Amy Clarke is a dynamic stage presence and force of nature, masterfully mixing vocals, drums, and keyboards – whether acoustic or electronic – with grace and magic.  She is releasing her first full-length studio album “A New Way” Fall 2017.

A lifetime performing artist, evolving from early classical piano recitals at Catholic University to solo synth keyboard & vocal performances at Burning Man and recent political rallies such as The Women’s March LA & The March For Truth LA, Amy Clarke has been performing on the world stage her entire life. She kicked off her own solo shows in NYC in 2004, and has had an illustrious career of notable stage performances, many times for a specific social or environmental justice cause, with many highlights over the years listed below.

OCT 24, 2010: The Hotel Cafe, solo show (pics below by Gary Ho Photography)

10/24 Hotel Cafe review by Robert Leggett for The Examiner: “strong on lyrical content” “music is ethereal, dreamy and classy” “an artist on the rise” http://3bl.me/agny29

“her music has developed into a fine-edged tool for presenting her message to the masses” & is an “artist who weaves her social consciousness into every song” “After listening … it is very difficult to just sit idly by – the listener is compelled to get involved. Amy’s music is a strong tool and definitely needed in today’s society.”
