Trees Are Glad You're Back
Amy Seeley's songs unfold like a story you can't put down and end up missing your stop three times for. They weave their way through beautifully crafted arrangements that make big rooms seem suddenly small. Having been raised in rural Montana, Amy brings the beauty of the isolated backdrop of her upbringing to life through her command of the piano. Her greatest influence has been the music of Tori Amos, together with the quiet, folk elements of Iron and Wine and Sufjan Stevens. For the past three years Amy has been playing solo shows throughout Canada, the U.S., and in December 2005 took her songs to Europe for performances in the UK, Germany and Amsterdam. The miles have given way to a stunning and articulate interplay of emotions and geography. "The Trees Are Glad You're Back" is the first full-length release by Amy, following up on her successful "Call It Life" EP released in 2005. She has a gift of crafting painfully vulnerable relections with an uncanny sense of dignity. And her captivating performances are continually striking an emotional nerve with her audiences. "The Trees Are Glad You're Back" gives listeners the heartbreaking magic they have come to hope for in any Seeley tale.
