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!
Just Launched>> GG Amos Record Project Indiegogo Campaign! Location: Everywhere! Deadline: November 17!
Hi Everybody! I've just launched my Crowdfunding Campaign on Indiegogo, to raise money to produce my new album– "Content Under Pressure"!
This has been a long time coming and I know many of you have supported me and come to shows over a lot of years. I have so appreciated you all!
The stars have aligned and the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. 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.
The crucial step in this process is raising the funds necessary to make this work. My goal is to raise $28,000. After Indiegogo takes their fees we’ll net around $26,300. The budget 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.
I'll have 10 original songs for you:
Come Down with the Blues
Why Does Love
Man That U R
Out of Your League
Content Under Pressure (Title Track!)
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.
Help me get a buzz 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!
