for the NYC Love Rocks benefit concert March 9 at The Beacon Theatre.
A number of other performers were on hand during the set including Gallant, GRiZ, Vulfpeck, Eric Krasno, Antwaun Stanley, members of Snarky Puppy and more. Watch the performance below!
But let me assure you this project was worth the wait, ... and what the heck, we got two pretty nice kids outta the deal.
The album's title is "Light On My Path". The songs are long time favorites of her's and Producer Fred Mollen. Composed by such greats as Jimmy Webb, Louise Goffin, Cyndi Lauper, Marc Jordan, Jack Routh and Randy Sharp, Danny O'Keefe, and many more.
It's a beautiful record filled with lovely soulful vocal performances by Amy and some brilliant musicianship.
Fred Mollen weighs in once again as one the great producers of real live music.
