Exciting news! Amy’s newest single, “Dad,” is being released any day now! And just in time for Father’s Day!!! 🙂 STAY TUNED!!!

Dad_version 2Music 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!

3 Chances to see Amy!!! 3 Gigs, Including the 1st Official “Meant To Be” CD Release Performance!!! :)

Hi friends, family and fans!

I have 3 performances coming up that I am very excited about! 🙂

The first is… Sept. 25th at a place called The B Side in Ann Arbor, Michigan! A singer from a Chicago acoustic act called Fairview invited me to be on the bill with him that night and I said “Yes!” I will be joined by Bassist, Mo Jones and Dobo player, Bill Arnold. 🙂 Doors open at 7PM and the show starts at 7:30PM. There will be several acoustic bands, but I don’t yet know in what order we will be playing. Stay tuned! Please like my FB page at Amy Susan Heard, and you will see timely postings from my ReverbNation account and my website. Please also “Follow Amy” on my main page! Simply enter your email address in the little white box & verify the email you will receive shortly after. That’s it! 😉

The second is… Oct. 3rd! I am really excited to be the featured artist at Lakeside Coffee House (in Orchard Lake Community Church) at 5171 Commerce, Orchard Lake, MI! This is a beautiful venue, right on the Lake! The doors will open at 7PM! The night begins at 7:30PM with a “Storyteller” and a child pianist, and then me, accompanied by the awesome Dobro stylings of Bill Arnold. We will be playing mostly originals and some family-friendly cover songs! Please come and join us! 🙂 For more info, call (248) 682-0730.

And finally, the 3rd is… AmySusanHeard_MeantToBe_CoverPhoto - Copymy first official Meant To Be CD Release performance!!! Come join us at my hometown’s newest addition, River’s Edge Brewery in downtown Milford, MI on Sunday, Nov. 1st, from 4-5PM!!! 🙂 It is a family-friendly establishment and, along with brewmaster Kim’s great home brews, they have awesome home-made root beer and delicious sandwiches! I will be playing with Bassist Mo Jones, Drummer Jamie Surgener, and “the Dobro man” Bill Arnold, all of the musicians that you hear on my newest CD, “Meant To Be!” It was a lot of red tape, but BMI finally registered my late sister, Danielle Heard, as an registered writer and now all of the music from “Meant To Be” can be tracked in radio play and live performances! Yay! 🙂

For those of you who were not able to make it to my performance at 4th Fridays in Dearborn, you missed a very special night with some wonderful Christian musicians. (A friend did a video of part of my live performance of “An Angel’s Got Her Wings,” as well as my interview with Rufus Harris, which you can see on my FB page or my YouTube page).   I will be back, probably as lead singer for Three Fold Mercy with Christian Bassist/Songwriter, Mo Jones! We have been recording for the past couple of years and are anxious to make our debut at 4th Fridays! Stay tuned!

Don’t Miss Amy at 4th Fridays (Christian Artists and Musicians Project) THIS Friday Night, June 26th! :)

4th Fridays LogoWell, it has been a long wait getting all of our ducks in a row with BMI and my sister, Danielle’s music, but the legal end is done and I am anxious to get out there and start doing promotional and CD release performances for my newest CD and first LP (long play… 14 songs), “Meant To Be!”

And FIRST UP is my absolute FAVORITE! 4th Fridays!!! This awesome event is put on my friends and prison ministry heroes, Rufus and Denise Harris, through their organization, the C.A.M.P. (Christian Artist and Musicians Project)! On the 4th Friday of each month (with the exception of November and December), this event takes place in Studio A at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn. It is an awesome night of Christian entertainment! This week, you will hear Rock band, Lively Pelts, Singer/Songwriter, Amy Susan Heard and Pastor/R&B Funk Christian artist, Rufus Harris himself!

THIS Friday, June 26th! Doors open at 8PM and the music magic begins at 8:30PM! Their motto is “Good Music, Good Coffee, Good Company!” It’s actually, “Awesome Music, Delicious  Cookies and Coffee and Heavenly Company!” There will be several kinds of coffee to choose from, as well as all the yummy fixings! Chocolate, Caramel, Whipped Cream, Sprinkles, Honey, Chocolate… did I mention Chocolate? Your $10 donation is greatly needed and appreciated! All the funds go into the prison ministry so you know it is put to good use! You will also be entered into a drawing to win free coffee goodies and CDs from Rufus, Lively Pelts and yours truly! 🙂

You won’t want to miss 4th Fridays! It is Joe and my favorite date night! 🙂 Rufus puts on an incredible, high quality show in a classy setting! There will be low and high top round tables with candle lighting and seats right in front of the action if you would prefer.

See you there!!! I will have my CDs, T-shirts and stickers for sale! 🙂

P.S. I am still at #1 for the singer/songwriter category in my area on ReverbNation! Yay! 🙂
