Here's what Amy had to say about the release:
Hi to all my wonderful people,
I know this week, and this past year, have been an emotionally taxing time for a lot of us — I'm especially sending love to my DC and VA people who are in the middle of the current madness. The one thing I know through all this, is on the other end, there is a great opportunity for growth and change — and how wonderful is that.
In 2020, without in-person shows, rehearsals, and recording, I had a moment to take a step back and explore the different sides of my musical interests. I had the time to learn so much more on the production end (and finally learn piano), which has allowed me to begin experimenting in a much deeper way. When I got the opportunity to reimagine a song for America's Gerry Beckley (a legend), I knew I wanted to do something unique with "I Need You
", and push myself out of my comfort zone.
I went to New Mexico for a few months to clear my head, get off the grid, and focus my mind on a new chapter of music. While there, my label, Blue Élan, reached out about this amazing Gerry Beckley tribute project. What an honor. My labelmates have created a wonderful collection of songs honoring a band and a writer I have always admired. I hope you enjoy this song, and this project we have created together.
