Our Salon Spotlight will feature Amy Engelhardt! Amy spent 13 years writing, recording and touring with the Grammy-nominated vocal quartet, The Bobs. Her solo album, Not Gonna Be Pretty, garnered multiple Just Plain Folks Award nominations (“The Grassroots Grammys” – LA Times). Based in Los Angeles for many years, Amy sang everything from Bach to rock for TV and film, on albums and in concerts with artists ranging from Neil Young to Barbra Streisand. But her heart belongs to the musical theatre, for which she co-wrote musical versions of Carl Sagan’s CONTACT, NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, and A COMEDY OF ERAS (with the Flying Karamazov Brothers) and recently scored BASTARD JONES, a rock adaptation of Henry Fielding’s scandalous 1740 novel, Tom Jones. Amy is the recipient of MAC’s 2011 Dottie Burman Award for Songwriting and is thrilled to be back in New York!
