Meet The Team
I always enjoy writing a song without having a clue what the song will be about. This song is a shining example of starting a song "from the first word." and developing the story without a preconceived notion of what I wanted to write about.
Nashville writers love to start from a title. I personally love to write songs that surprise me.
Me and the Moon
People always ask me where a song idea comes from. I have been married for 40 years, so I do not have many sad relationship moments to draw inspiration from.
This song was written one night after all of my dinner guests canceled and left me with a 5-quart pot of spaghetti sauce and no one to share it with!
Moment In Time
I was doing my laundry at a laundry mat near the ferry dock in Culebra, Puerto Rico. I had 6 minutes left on the washer. I pulled out a pen and paper to help pass the time, and this song poured through. It was written in one steady stream of writing without one erase!
I still had to wait for my clothes!
Mother Natures Song
When my daughter Melody was about 12 years old, she kept saying she wanted to be a marine biologist. I wrote this song thinking she was going to love it. When I showed it to her, she said. “It’s fine. It’s not your best.” Later, she told me she hated the line. “I watch as the waves make love to the shore.” I guess it was too much for a 12-year-old.
We Don't Know
I was asked to write a song for the dedication of a new wing at the Riverside National Cemetery dedicated to POW/MIA families. It is the first of its kind where families can get some closure by commemorating their loved ones with a location set specifically for them. This song aims to have the listener better understand what these families are going through.
Video slide show of Culebra, Puerto Rico
Three Amy Jo Originals are the soundtrack to this compilation of Amy Jo's photographs of Culebra and main island Puerto Rico.
It's About Life
This is a weird video to be sure. I created this slide show for "Culebra Island Villas" to post on their website. But hey, At least you can hear the song!
Years ago, our neighbor was a famous screen writer who loved to write horror movies. To make him smile, I attempted to write a scary melody. The next thing I knew I was writing a song about Noah's Arc from Noah's perspective.
When I took all the footage of Hurricane Earl to post on Social Media, I decided to put the song as the back drop.
It's Not Love
This video SUCKS!! But this song is FABULOUS!!!
The low lighting of nighttime wigged out the camera, so the whole thing is out of focus... But you can hear how much the audience loves this song!
Home Grown Plums
This song is from my children's album "Fairytales"
