“A big-hearted, music-makin', question-askin', midnight-dancin', genre-jumpin' songsmith whose real-life Americana tunes are as fun as a country drive, an upbeat blues, or a swing around the circle of fifths on the dancefloor.”
You travel down a crooked road to a good music spot or festival and you hear this singer/songwriter with an old guitar, engaging Americana tunes and stories to tell. Her friends call her Amy Dee and her music takes you places, painting colorful pictures. Her songs share a quest for interesting places, people and a musical life. With songs as varied as the people you meet, she jumps genres: from folk to swing, blues to gospel, bluegrass to old country.
Ever the collaborator, Amy Duckett Wagner has launched three original music CD projects: The Travel-inspired “Southern Routes,” recorded in Louisiana with members of The Revelers (Red Stick Ramblers), The Bluegrassy “Come With Me” made in Pennsylvania/New Jersey (with a tribute to Dr. Ralph), And the jazzy “Big Time,” laid down in New Orleans with the piano and horns of a hot French Quarter Jazz Trio. Sojourns at Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps, Texas' Kerrville Folk Festival’s Songwriter’s Week, and Louisiana’s Black Pot Camps influenced Amy’s musicianship.
