As a teenager Amelia dreamed of being a musician. So at the age of 13 signed up for guitar lessons. Like most 13 year olds, once she realized that it wasn’t as easy as it looks, put her guitar in the corner with the promise of learning to play another day. In the meantime life took over. High school and dating-guitar in the corner. College and studying-guitar in the corner. Marriage and children-guitar in the corner. Building a career in business-lost sight of guitar in the corner.
After being lost in the corner for 38 years, children raised, career built, Amelia heard the music of Bright Eyes and was inspired to find that old guitar, sign up for lessons and actually learn to play.
Amelia plays music and sings at local events and has performed in the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill with friends and fellow musicians. Amelia regularly performs with friends and fellow musicians at the Highway 61 Roadhouse in Webster Groves, Missouri.
Amelia’s musical influences are, Leonard Cohen, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, John Lennon and Harry Chapin.
