Amy Montgomery

‘Intangible’ the debut 5 track EP from Amy Montgomery, released 20th November 2020, includes a gloriously emotional live version of her song ‘Old Photographs’. A reflective, poignant and powerful aura surrounds Amy as she delivers a stunning and impassioned vocal performance. Accompanied by a piano and nothing more, and shot in Belfast’s Harty Room at Queens University, ‘Old Photographs’ presents her distinctive voice as she flows in and out of focus, dancing around the soul-stirring atmosphere and filling every ounce of the empty space with an ethereal, captivating sincerity.

The first thing that grabs your attention about Irish singer songwriter Amy Montgomery (apart from her Bohemian look) is her raw and beautiful voice honed from relentless busking throughout Ireland. Her vocals seem to channel the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick whilst also acknowledging her all time favourite Alanis Morissette.

Amy has just completed three headline shows in Belfast, London and Dublin – The shows all sold extremely well with Belfast upgraded to a bigger venue. The shows were highly charged emotions swung from happiness and smiles to audience members literally weeping – these three shows proved incontrovertibly that Amy is ready to take on the world.

Festivals have included Electric Picnic, Stendhal, a main stage Glastonbury slot (“Acoustic Stage” > 5000 capacity), Cambridge Folk Festival Main Stage, Black Deer, A Summer’s Tale in Germany, A tour of Australia is booked and now Rolling Stone Beach and Park Weekenders in Germany. It really has been an incredible response – but when you hear her voice you’ll get an idea of why.

Working with well know NI producer/songwriter/musician Michael Mormecha (Drums), Zach Trouton (Keys), Ben Flavelle-Cobain (Bass) the four piece deliver a fresh, edgy and original live performance.

“A Warrior Soul Cradled In Tradition – Amy Montgomery was one of the standout performances at Cambridge Folk Festival 2019.” – Trebuchet Magazine

“Fresh from a festival in Switzerland the night before, Amy Montgomery showed no sign of flagging in one of the most dynamic performances I have seen in a long time. Two years ago when I first saw Amy I thought she was a great performer – now after gigs all over Europe and a stint at this year’s Glastonbury, she’s verging on world-class!” – folkandtumble.com

“She came on stage with all the attitude of Joan Jett. In feathered bra-top, leather-look leggings, war paint and biker jacket, this girl is ballsy. And she has the voice to match” – Mandela Hall Review, Gigging NI June 2018

“She has already been compared to Grace Slick and Janis Joplin, possibly because of the power of her voice, the free abandon with which she sings so naturally and her bohemian look. Tonight, many of the songs could have been lesser known songs of Fleetwood Mac and her gutsy, dreamy, melodic vocals are reminiscent of the legendary Stevie Nicks” – National Rock Review, Feb 2018

“The biggest and best surprise of the entire weekend was Amy Montgomery This lady has a huge voice with phenomenal power and she wasted no time in getting the crowd dancing. Playing as part of three piece who rotated between drums, guitar and keyboards, Montgomery didn’t give you the time or space to draw breath” – Stendhal Festival Review, Aug 2018

“Astounding voice alert, Amy is a great sonic explorer in the tradition of Janis Joplin and John Martyn” – BBC NI Across The Line

“If Alanis Morissette and Trent Reznor were to have a baby and then send the baby to be babysat by Joni Mitchell for half the week and the other half of the week be babysat by Janis Joplin, you would come pretty close to Amy Montgomery” – Scenestr

“The utterly feral Amy Montgomery sent a wave of disbelief across the marquee and out into the field beyond. A wild performance, bluesy, gutsy engaging and utterly individual” – Northern Sky, Cambridge Folk Festival

Amazing roster I've known Midnight Mango since the days when John Smith was an upcoming artist and their roster is now even more amazing and their professionalism is unmatched. Saw some amazing acts at Beautiful Days and Funke and the Two Tone Baby rocked the Bimble Inn with a bouncing crowd.
