Local Spotlight - Amy n Me

  

New to the Galveston music scene, Amy N’ Me is an acoustic duo with a surprisingly big sound. The duo is made up of Amy Collins on vocals and Alby Valadez on guitar. Texas born Collins’ powerhouse voice and passionate delivery is especially showcased in their iconic covers like Aerosmith’s “Dream On” and 4 Non Blonde’s “What’s Up.” Valadez’s extensive resume includes years of touring in the U.S. and internationally in rock bands like First Wish and Sid 17 as well as songwriting and experience in the recording industry with Music Square Productions. Collins and Valadez were largely inspired by their trips to Nashville, Tennessee and the super talented musicians they heard there. Their concept for the duo was to take popular country, rock, and pop songs recorded by 4-5 piece bands and recreate them using only two voices, a guitar, and some acoustic percussion. Alby’s ability to artfully create a full sound that captures the feel of the original song with just his guitar is quite impressive. Their performances are unique as well. Instead of glued to a bar stood behind a mic stand, you’ll often find Collins playfully roaming the crowd, dancing and interacting with the audience to music from the 50s to present. 


Though they released an EP titled “Pretty Beautiful,” in 2017 containing several covers and a few original songs, including the title track to “Pretty Beautiful,” 2018 finds them working on their first all original, full-length album, set to be released in spring, 2019. The album’s country-rock vibe perfectly reflects their personality, with up-tempo singles like “Wrong” and “What’s It Gonna Be?” showcasing their seriously playful attitude. The album even features a song called “Oh, Galveston” representing some of the island’s most loved attractions. Both Collins and Valadez contribute lead vocals for the album, and they are collaborating with some of the most talented musicians around. In the meantime, the best place to experience Amy N’ Me is at 3 Doors Down bar inside the Peanut Butter Warehouse, where they are regular guests. .
