Now you know, I speak from my heart when I say my Westies are my Besties! But sometimes, you just have to colour outside the lines. Especially when it comes to a voice like Amy Bishop.
In my defence, I did hear Amy perform at an intimate house concert in Comox on the weekend. That counts as West Coast, right?!
What a wonderful evening. Amy Bishop is so funny!!! And that voice. She is like a chameleon! I laughed, I cried.
Amy has that special ability to draw you in; you feel and experience every word she is singing. Smooth and evocative like a slow winding stream as it ripples over the rocks. Then Amy switches up to a toe tapping song, and with a growl in her voice, you are transported to a honkey tonk saloon.
Listen to one of my favourites of the evening, Remembered.
Check out Amy Bishop's website. Listen to her beautiful voice. Buy her CDs. Better yet, contact your favourite local venue. Let's get Amy back here on the West Coast!
