To the One Tree Hill family who’s been so wonderful to me over the years… Thank you once again My song, “Where I Can’t Follow,” will be on the opening sequence tonight. Be sure to tune in to the CW at 8/7c.
Amy Kuney performing her original song, “Kiss Me Like You Mean It,” live at Threshold Sound + Vision.
If “Kiss Me Like You Mean It” was vengeful and scared your lover into taking back the keys to his/her apartment, hopefully this is the “make up” song that’ll get you those keys back… and a little extra? Enjoy! And Happy New Year!
Happy Holidays everyone! I hope this finds you well and warm wherever you are. Read More

Butch Clancy has done it AGAIN. He took another one of my songs, “Kiss Me Like You Mean It,” and made it phat, sick, dope, yummy, tasty, sexy, delicious, bomb, neato, sweet, sharp, ace, the tits, peachy, perf, epic, naughty, hawt and/or any other word you’d care to use for “awesome.” I’m so honored to have him work on my music – he’s brilliant.
My song “Kiss Me Like You Mean It” was greatly inspired by Fiona Apple and Elvis Costello’s performance of “I Want You”… I felt so haunted by the performance and it stalked me for a long time after. Out of that, this song was born. I hope you enjoy it – and ‘gift’ it to anyone who’s ever made you cry.

Since I started my career in music, people have continually asked me this redundant (and sometimes annoying) question: Who inspires you/who do you look up to the most? It should be an easy question to answer, but for me… it’s impossible. I haven’t been able to name one artist in my generation who’s given me more »
So…Y’all have seen me cover songs in my bedroom, you’ve seen youtube videos of my shows or maybe I’ve played for you on Ustream, but I really wanted to give you a live band experience. And while I can’t tour in all of your hometowns just yet, I figured this was the next best thing. My band: Jon Ketchum (guitar), Cameron Tyler (drums), & Andrew Perusi (bass and fro) and I got together and played through a few of my new songs for you. This one is called “Where I Can’t Follow” and it’s up on iTunes now We shot it at Threshold Sound+ Vision, which has been my studio “home” since I moved to LA as a young’un. Marc Schrobilgen shot/edited it, Peter Barker and Todd Bergman mixed it.
So here’s my first single (one of many to come) called “Where I Can’t Follow.” Lyrics below… I hope you enjoy!
“Gasoline Rainbows” is now a single on iTunes! To celebrate, and to thank you for keeping up with me and being so patient, here’s a free download of the acoustic version – just enter your email address
I’ve launched a pledge campaign, raising money to finish my new music, play more shows w/my band and hopefully play shows internationally (I might be coming to a town near you!) I’ve been notified that my prizes are a little creepy (i.e. a Robert Pattinson blow up doll, and my offer to sing you to sleep for $50) – yes I’m selling my soul but I’ve gotta wrap this project up so you can hear it! Please check out the site, you can watch the video and decide if any of the prizes appeal to you. I’ll even offer my firstborn… so take your pick! Thank you all a million times over. I love you all and can’t wait to show you my new music. Click here to get involved!
ps. the video has a sneak peek of a new song!
Lot of exciting things happening at the moment First and foremost, I’ve been hugely inspired by Stacey Tookey, a choreographer currently working on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE (Both U.S. and Canada) – a show I’ve been following for the past 5 years. It’s been a dream of mine to see her use one of my songs for a routine, and last night it actually happened! Stacey used “Gasoline Rainbows” on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA. You can watch the piece below; Beautiful and brilliant.

I originally began writing “Sway” for a friend of mine to sing… but after experiencing 45 minutes of projectile word vomit, the song morphed into being and I knew it was meant for me. Chris and I were going over the song for the first time a couple days ago and thought y’all might wanna more »
Hey guys! I originally wrote “Gasoline Rainbows” for the show “Whale Wars” (a documentary style show on Animal Planet about whale poaching). Then the BP oil spill happened… And my song (sadly) fit the situation perfectly. Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols (both activists, trying to help with the clean-up in any way they could) heard more »
Can’t believe it’s March already! I had to recite this silly little poem a few times before it hit me: Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November; All the rest have thirty-one, Save February, with twenty-eight… wait 28? wtf?! Yea… it snuck up on me. Anyway, I’m playing a show March 12th at Zoey’s more »
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I love this song, “The Only Exception” by Paramore, because it’s so ‘bittersweet’… It’s a love song but there’s still a tinge of heartbreak. It’s all around perfect, in my honest opinion. I hope you enjoy! -Amy
Hey guys, Here’s a video of my band and me performing one of my new songs, “Kiss Me Like You Mean It,” at The Roxy in Los Angeles. It was a really fun show… Kate Voegele and Kelley James also performed. Hope you like the song! Let me know what you think My band members: more »
So… in my mind The Script just can’t go wrong. I’m fully prepared to cover their whole album when it comes out. Ha ha. I hope you enjoy this one! -Amy
Hello everyone! Happy holidays! I hope Santa was good to you, and that you haven’t set too many new year’s resolutions (everybody’s gotta have some fun!) I’m writing to let you know that I have an all ages show coming up on January 8th at 8:30 p.m. at the Roxy. I’ll be opening for Kelley more »
My song “Gasoline Rainbows” came together through a labor of love: I produced it with Francois-Paul Aïche, Ken Andrews mixed it, and my fantasy drummer, Matt Chamberlain, played on it (eek!). It is the title track of a benefit album – 100% of proceeds going to the Gulf relief effort through Global Green. The artists more »
I thought that was a good title because that’s exactly where I am in life…antisocial, emo…I fall asleep around 6am when ‘adult swim’ turns into ‘Shamwow’. I’ve had the habit of writing lists on my hand, and it’s usually smeared on my face the next day, like now…I have “Q-tips, Blank CDs, & Conditioner” across more »
