Amy Obenski: www.amyobenski.com
You may have already heard Amy Obenski’s song, Carousel, when it aired on the hit TV show, Grey’s Anatomy. Her sultry edge cuts through the noise of every day life and is perfect for a heart-felt scene. With lyrics about the experience of being human, her music has a way of connecting with pretty much anyone on a deeply personal level. Her multi-layered dreamscapes, gripping vocals and lyrics, are often enhanced with Live Looping technology at her feet. You’ll hear her add drop-dead harmonies and multiple instruments atop her own songs.
Jazz-tinged, folk-infused RnB, delivered with a dynamic soulful voice sure from its deepest brooding lows to fierce highs, is what you can expect from San Francisco based singer-songwriter, Ziva. With a background in classical music, funk and jazz, Ziva’s music draws inspiration from many different genres and is eclectic, colorful, seductive and lush. Ziva’s lyrics are mostly about love & lust, but here and there you can find a song about social justice, the planet or personal growth – for good measure.
Over the past 3 years Ziva has been recording her entire song catalog of the past 15 years with producer Gawain Mathews and will start releasing all of these songs in the very near future
