Amber Sweeney is an accomplished soul/rock singer, songwriter, and recording artist who recently signed with London Tone Music, to release a single as part of their 52x52: A Year In Your Ear project. Her single “Lone Sailor,” produced by Geoff Ott, at London Bridge Studio, is a powerful rockin’ soul/blues track that shows off both her powerful voice and her accomplished guitar chops.
In 2013, Amber released two E.P.s: The Starting Line (April 16) and Christmas Time (November 28). Both were released worldwide through CD Baby and are available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, Pandora and more.
Upon release of The Starting Line, Antimusic said, “In an age of auto-tuned so-called singers, a truly gifted singer like roots rocker Amber Sweeney, is a breath of much needed fresh air.”
Music from her album The Starting Line has been featured on Kink FM’s Homegrown Spotlight, KUMZ FM’s Local Roots radio, and KZME’s Sunday Sessions.
Amber’s voice, musical talent, and songwriting have also been featured in two CW television series: One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected(Flying Machine, Girl In The Moon, Quicksand, Maybe, Stars, Feel This - written by Jonathan Jackson of Enation) while one half of the duo known as Everly. Her voice has also been featured in Stephen King’s film adaptation of Riding The Bullet, while bass player and back up singer for the rock band Enation. She can also be heard on another northwest band’s album, The Alleged Album by One From Many (Tears We Cry Alone and Shape Of Your Heart).
Amber has been privileged to play at a variety of venues over the years, including: Maryhill Winery (Goldendale, WA), Bossanova Ballroom (Portland, OR), Genghis Cohen’s (Los Angeles, CA), The Corn Palace (Mitchell, SD), The Whiskey A Go-Go (Los Angeles, CA), The Troubador (Los Angeles, CA) The Rutledge - Tin Pan South (Nashville, TN), Moulton Falls Winery (Yacolt, WA) to name a few. She is known for being engaging and truly entertaining during her live performances.
Along with recording and performing, Amber has also launched a production company called In The Rounds Productions, is a member of ASCAP, and is a voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, better known as the Grammys.
Amber is also an advocate to end human trafficking, by supporting Not For Sale (www.notforsalecampaign.org) and Shared Hope International (www.sharedhope.org). She uses her song Leap (from The Starting Line E.P) to help open the dialogue about these issues and discuss how others can get involved.
