Just in time for Valentine’s, Amy’s newest single, a 1940’s-style jazz ballad, “Love this Wilted Flower,” composed by James Stonehouse of Berkley Michigan and lyrically penned by Chicago playwrite, LG Taylor, has been released!
This is the second project released by LG, James and Amy, the first being a touching, theatrical-style single entitled “Dad.” Both of these tunes are intended as part of an upcoming play, by LG Taylor.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working on both of these projects! Once again, James’ composition seems to fit me like a glove. Time seems to slip away gracefully in this piece, as it does in my own life. There is a constant resistance and release in the rhythm, which resonated with my heart and echoed in my vocal phrasing.” ~ Amy Susan Heard

Be on the lookout for 2 new CDs coming out very soon! One by Christmas and one by Valentine’s Day!
I am lead singer for a new Contemporary Christian Band called ThreeFold Mercy! We (myself, bassist Mo Jones, guitarist Greg Vella and Drummer Kevan McDaniel) have been recording in the studio for about three years and we have finally done a couple of pre release performances and are getting ready to release “Long Time” very soon, we are hoping by Christmas! We are a very eclectic group of musicians…. Sort of a Pop Funk Folk Country Jazz Blues Fusion! Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
The second project is a single jazz tune, entitled “Love This Wilted Flower,” beautifully written by my friend, composer James Stonehouse (music) and my new friend, playwrite LG Taylor (lyrics) from Chicago.
I can’t wait for you all to hear these exciting new projects! Stay Tuned!
Exciting news Everyone! It’s HERE!
My new single, “Dad,” is now up on iTunes and Amazon!
“Dad” paints a beautiful picture of the imperative role that every father plays in each stage of his child’s life and gives comfort and hope to those who are without a father figure. “Dad” is written from the perspective of a daughter who lost her dad and searched until she found someone to pick up where her Dad left off. She realizes that her Dad was with her the whole time and led her every step of the way.
I can’t help but think of my Heavenly Daddy when I sing this song. God lovingly chose my earthly father before I was even conceived. He carefully planned every detail of that Daddy/Daughter relationship and guided us every step of the way. Through the laughter and tears (and there have been PLENTY of both!), God has been with us all along.
“Dad” is orchestrated beautifully by my brilliant composer friend, James Stonehouse, and the poignant lyrics are written by my new friend, the very talented LG Taylor.
Hello devoted family, friends and fans!
Exciting news! Amy’s newest single, “Dad,” is being released any day now! And just in time for Father’s Day!!! 🙂 STAY TUNED!!!
Music by James Stonehouse and lyrics by LG Taylor.
Look for it on iTunes, Amazon, TuneCore and more!
P.S. Huge hugs to all who supported me with postings, word of mouth and voting in the Detroit Music Awards! I did not take home any awards this year but, as always, it was a great honor to be nominated! It was humbling to be up against the late Ortheia Barnes, who won Outstanding Gospel/Christian Recording and Vocalist. So many incredible musicians lost this year. Heaven must be sounding glorious!
