Amy and the Engine were the preshow for the Don McLean Concert. I thought they sounded pretty good and an up and coming musical Group.
What do you think about this group?
Fronted by a modern day Twiggy-meets-Stevie-Nicks, and backed by musicians that hail from across the globe, Boston-based Amy & The Engine brings singer/songwriter depth to upbeat synth-pop with a folk-rock sensibility. Coy vocals compound with lyrical smarts and the infectious melodies of “quirky pop,” creating a signature “catchy, earworm style” (Vanyaland). Hailing from South Portland, Maine, frontwoman Amy Allen began her love affair with music at the ripe age of nine. It comes as no surprise that within the last year alone, the band has inspired and impressed audiences with performances at VH1’s Save The Music Foundation and NYC’s CMJ Music Marathon 2014. Amy & The Engine has opened for acts the likes of Vance Joy, Lily & The Parlour Tricks and The Streets of Laredo, and is set to debut a six-track EP in mid-2015. Expect a record that is fresh, “pop gold” and teaming with “pure sunshine” (Portland Press Herald), that earnestly explores themes of love and life.
