Bed of Coats Tour

It’s been a while friends, too long really. My good friend Gina Villalobos and I have decided to hit the road at the end of this summer and play for the good people of the West North Coast. We will be singing old and new songs, songs solo and songs duo. Will be a great night of music in each and every city. Come join in the fun.

Good Wishes to Mike Johnson!

My good friend and musical brother has decided to move on from the band. I have countless memories of great musical times with this guy. Whether it be our duo gigs on West Cliff, to playing in front of thousands at San Francisco Pride, Mike always brought his “A” game to the band. We wish him well in his musical adventure!

In to the Studio we go!

Now that Amee & the Whiskey Sea is fully established, we will be heading to the studio to record some new versions of some older songs and some covers. We hope to hone our sound and have something to share very soon! So Excited.

Big Musical Month

Amee & the Whiskey Sea is plugging away, learning new songs for a wedding coming up in September. We are also getting ready to record some songs in the studio. This band fills me up. The guys are so musical and care about treating each song with respect. So nice to be able to do that. See you at a show! Next one is September 13th at the Crepe Place in Santa Cruz.

Amee & the Whiskey Sea

I am so excited to be playing music with these guys. I have played with all of them at one time or another. This is a real supergroup! We call ourselves Amee & the Whiskey Sea. Our next show is Monday July 20th at the Crepe Place in Santa Cruz. We are tightening our set, adding some new songs (revamping some older tunes) and putting together our branding. This time around it is all about making the experience unforgettable.  

Nice Review of the Album

Thanks to Adam Hook of Soaked in Sound for reviewing the record. http://soakedinsound.com/newtues.html#.UWwkzYKkBp5 Grace is Hell to Keep is an album that should occupy the collection of every music lover. The body releases a great sigh with each song because it knows that there is another composition to combat the seemingly endless ridiculous excuse for music getting attention today.

Gaining a buzz in the Media!

Here are some articles about the band and CD Release! http://www.gtweekly.com/index.php/santa-cruz-area-music/love-your-local-santa-cruz-band/4523-amee-chapman-a-the-velvet-tumbleweeds.html   The Santa Cruz Sentinel Guide section in print only: “Northern California native and singer/songwriter Amee Chapman brings her beautifully burnished voice and nicely lived-in songs to the Kuumbwa to celebrate a sound she likes to call ‘Sagebrush Soul’ and her new album titled “Grace is Hell to Keep”. Hear her tender, Lucinda-like music Friday.
