Amy Montgomery delivers arresting debut EP, ‘Intangible’

Words by John 'Dr John' Lamp

Her vocal style channels the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick but with a very modern attitude and spiritual elements in tow.

This is a bit different from the style of music I usually review. The question then arises … why? Why am I reviewing this EP.

The answer is that this some interesting alternative rock, and it’s being sung by a woman with an amazing voice.

That voice was the first thing that grabbed me about this release. Amy Montgomery’s voice is immediately arresting, and floats in and above the melodies in each of the tracks.

She’s an Irish native and is based out of Belfast.

At just 20 years of age, she is already a musical force of nature, performing with great intensity on both guitar and keyboards.

Amy spent quite some time busking across Ireland, and the need for a remarkable and powerful voice in that activity probably contributed to her vocal style and skills.

In the track “Anywhere”, she says “try not to steal.” I wonder if there are some busking experiences contributing to that track?

Her vocal style channels the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick but with a very modern attitude and spiritual elements in tow.

Performing barefooted, adorned in war paint and flamboyantly designed stage outfits, she presents a fearless and confident persona both as a performer and singer.

“I’d like to inspire you by showing that I can live and create a life I love even after hard times. And you can too. With a little faith, a lot of rhythm and even more Soul”

You can find her online, which might be the easiest way to find her at present.
