And that has made all the difference."

Amy Hindman “Beneath the Surface” 1992 REVIEW

The following review appeared in Issue #49 - December/January 93-94. Amy Hindman Beneath the Surface{Kamaya Productions 007 (1992)

Amy Hindman takes a chance  with her debut release, Beneath the Surface, revealing, as she does, intense and personal hurts while asserting the alchemical process of awareness.  Feminist by example, songs like "Solo" - with Suzi Schadle's bass flute playing around Hindman's clear vocal - - offer freedom through  enticing images of the Pacific Northwest.  "Prayer for My Child," an apologetic and belated goodbye, is crisply sad, uplifted with juxtapositions of natural beauty and human loss. Grieving is done, and with an ease grappled from serious private soul-searching, in "The Gift . . . for Karleen."  "Deep Therapy" emerges as if from a diary selection: unrelentingly honest, purifyingly true.  That freedom, arrived at by working through pain, is the ultimate gift of this deceptively plain and simple cassette.

FUN FACT:

Amy's favorite Beatle was Paul McCartney when she was a kid 🙂
Amy got to MEET Paul McCartney when he wrote a children's book, and got to shake his hand!

Amy entered an International Songwriting Contest, and PAUL MCCARTNEY judged her song "Gandhi and King: Becoming the Dream," and it won an HONORABLE MENTION!

I THINK IT IS TIME AMY GETS TO SING WITH PAUL MCCARTNEY!!!

“If you get to meet Amy in person, you can shake the hand that shook Paul McCartney’s hand!!”  Whoo hoo!!

FUN FACT:

Amy got a telephone call from Dorothy Ives, wife of Burl Ives, on her 40th birthday! Dorothy had received Amy's first album, "Beneath the Surface," and said "You have a beautiful voice! Would you like to sing with Burl?" Happy Birthday Amy!!! The answer was a resounding, "YES!!!"

“Her voice is so clear.”

Burl Ives
Legendary folk singer and actor

"Her music reflects her influences: James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, The Beatles. Strong musicians, but moreover strong songwriters.”
