Welcome to the website of GG Amos.. Soulful, Jazzy, Simmering West Coast Blues!
GG Amos has entertained audiences her whole life.. but she's made blues and the blues guitar her specialty for the last 30 years.
Concert halls, nightclubs, roadhouses, restaurants, festivals, parties, wineries, weddings and wakes.. she's played them all.
She's known as a riveting performer and unique songwriter, focusing on the west coast blues style— a blend of blues, jazz, funk & latin elements. Her guitar playing and voice are both fluid and lyrical.
Soul jazz has increasingly become a bigger part of her repertoire.
GG's single "West Coast", a tribute to the genre and the late Johnny Heartsman, is available for download from CD Baby.
Hit the MUSIC link or the lovely banner in the sidebar to buy it.
At CD Baby you can also hear and buy 8 more hot tunes from her previous release "Gotts Ta Go!".
GG & her full band or organ trio "The GG3" are available for private events of any kind.
If sultry, jazzy, funky, soulful blues or r&b are what you're looking for.. she will bring it!
Ongoing Fundraiser>> GG Amos Record Project Campaign! Location: Everywhere! Current Goal: $5,000.–
Hi Everybody! Last November my Crowdfunding Campaign on Indiegogo, to raise money to produce my new album– "Content Under Pressure" was partially successful, (I raised $5,000 of a $26,000 goal) but due to concurrent events including the terrible disaster of the California Camp Fire; a benefit to fight human trafficking and 2 other health related funding campaigns, it was difficult to compete with those serious issues.
I thank each and every one of you who did contribute so far! It's a start and I can get rehearsals going and some initial recording studio time booked. I will need to raise additional funds in smaller batches, so this appeal is for the next $5,000. This will enable the completion of tracking, mixing and mastering.
The total budget still includes Studio fees, Musician fees (I'll be hiring 10-12 other musicians), Mixing & Mastering fees, Design & Layout for the CD/Album cover, Manufacturing of the product, Merchandise for you– my fans, and hiring a Publicist to spread the news Nationwide and beyond.
As said before, my great musicians are ready and willing to go. The studio is in place. Most importantly, the songs are going to be born after years of developing in my head and soul.
After using Indiegogo for the last round, I'm switching to PayPal, and placing a Donate button here and on my social media. It'll be super easy for you to click it and you can use your own PayPal account or credit cards.
The list of 10 original songs:
Come Down with the Blues
Why Does Love
Man That U R
Out of Your League
Content Under Pressure (Title Track!)
Help me keep this project going .. please share by emails, social media and one-on-one! For those of you who are able and inspired enough to help finance a GREAT recording, I promise you it will be ear candy .. soulful, exciting, swingin' ..unique but familiar!
Please take a look at the awesome video and hear the wonderful things these veteran musicians have to say on my behalf, along with live clips of some of the tunes I'll record, and a few choice photos.
