Currently based in Portland, OR, Amy Bleu is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. Her vocals, which range from a controlled scream to a mesmerizing lullaby, are hauntingly beautiful, and her lyrics poetically express anguish and joy with poignancy, depth, and pathos.
Born in Eastern WA and raised primarily in Hawaii, Bleu grew up on the road, hearing relentless melodies and accompanying stories in her head. She fiddled around with the ukulele as a child in Hawaii, but didn’t discover her true love – the guitar – until she was 19. A versatile performer, Bleu has enjoyed entertaining at diverse venues in the US, Canada, and Europe, such as book stores, a bank, the zoo, an amusement park, and a grocery store, as well as more traditional venues such as bars, coffeehouses, restaurants and festivals. She is currently touring in support of her new live album, “Because They Wanted To”, created with collaborator / harmonica player, Kevin Raybon.
