Curious as the cat, Amy Arena has performed hard rock to tech-house and some styles in between that we aren't even sure have a genre. She's finally settled into pop, but her upcoming album demonstrates her impatience and eclecticism. She stands out with provocative lyrics that demonstrate she's a well-read intellect who knows the streets. A free-lunch kid of a broken home, Arena found herself bounced around by small-minded executives who couldn't quite break her for the almighty dollar, but after a few rounds, the deeply poetic vocalist has found harmony in the matrix and is ready to deal.
Long and Winding
Wooed at nineteen by producers and executives, a sensitive and emotional Amy Arena lost her soul and sense of self very quickly under the industry thumb. With a band in turmoil and a label relentlesly deceiving her, Arena called it quits just before a world tour with regret and sadness. She escaped through the underground electronica scene of San Francisco where she recorded dozens of tracks lost in the hard drives of techno producers and in the endless libraries of house DJs. Anguished by the discovery of nodules, Amy recovered by performing in Detroit theater and as a voiceover actress. Renewed and restored, Amy's taken control and creates music on her own terms.
