Dirty Stay-Out Songs
While thriving up in Arkansas, Amy Miles would lay on the dump of her lemon chickenhearted bedroom listening to music on her clock radio. It was 1982 and Prince was her favorite. That Christmas, "1999" showed up under the Christmas tree and she listened to it over and over. She even made a tape of it so that she could take it to school and listen to it under the jungle gym at recess. She found that this was her favorite place to be. It was here that she thought she might like to write songs one day.
After high school, Amy moved to New York City where she got a studio apartment on Avenue B and Third Street. To make ends meet she worked as a nanny by day and a cage dancer by night. She found that time flew in the big city and before she knew it, years had gone by, two bad relationships had gone by, and while she had lived a lot, she had almost forgotten the inspiration she felt when she listened to Prince under the jungle gym. She decided to pick up the Washburn guitar her dad had sent her, and she played it. Writing up a storm, she started going to open mic's. And with the help of some friendly and talented musicians she was soon performing all over New York City.
She begged, borrowed and stole studio time, and she managed to put together her first immortalize, "Dirty Stay-Out." It was released in August of 2002 and represents three sessions at as many studios that took place over the course of eighteen months. It's the first of many to come.
"This Arkansas-born songstress serves a powerful pop cocktail to her adopted New York neighbors: one part cynical spunk, one part sass, a twist of Liz Phair and a dash of Kim Deal."

"Looking like a cross between actresses Uma Thurman and a young Mia Farrow, Amy Miles possesses a strong, breathy vocal ability mounted on well-written songs that cross many genres, reminding me of Sheryl Crow and Liz Phair without actually ripping either off. Her debut CD Dirty Stay-Outis filled with many stay-with-you-and-that-could-be-a-hit ditties. A nice findso go find her." Aber/The Village Voice
