Allow me to introduce Amie Miriello
A few weeks ago an artist by the name of Amie Miriello stopped by our office to introduce herself and play a few songs.
A Connecticut native, Amie moved to New York to pursue a career in music. Her first attempt landed her in a band called Dirty Blonde. Funny thing about that is that Amie is a pure Italian brunette, so she had to dye her hair regularly to keep up with the name. She told us her hair was so bleached that it was falling out. To fully express herself, Amie left Dirty Blonde and began working on her solo career. Alongside her childhood friend Jay Dmuchowski, the two got noticed playing acoustic gigs throughout NYC and caught enough attention to get signed to Jive Records. Amie recently put out her debut album I Came Around.
Amie's music draws inspiration from other female artists like Ani DiFranco, Stevie Nicks, Fionna Apple, and Alanis Morissette. In addition to her powerful voice, Amie has the brash personality a former bartender would have. Every other word out of her mouth was some version of profanity, but coming from a petite Italian girl, it came off as sexy.
Amie just wrapped up a tour with Bob Schneider and is working hard to promote her album.
