Amy's newest release examines life's amazing journey, the joys and the trials, with her thoughtful, honest lyrics, and her unique and captivating voice. Produced by Amy and John Abbey, who gathered some of the best musicians in Chicago to join Amy on this album - Mark Dvorak, John, Abbey, Don Stiernberg, Sue Demel and Deb Lader (Sons of the Never Wrong), Bill Brickey, Steve Dawson (Dolly Varden), and many more. Amy brings together the musical styles of traditional folk, blues, gospel, celtic and contemporary folk in one compelling album. 'With her new release, 'Dancing Through the Storm,' Chicago-based singer-songwriter, Amy Dixon-Kolar, goes beyond the expected well-crafted, beautiful songs, accompanied by her lovely voice and dexterous guitar, and with material that offers timely messages and insights about everyday life, love, and humanity. Here, Amy doesn't stay inside a musical comfort zone, but instead successfully explores a wider range of styles and instruments, in working with highly regarded producer and multi-instrumentalist, John Abbey, and with some of Chicago's most talented artists adding vocals or instruments to tracks. The result: a mesmerizing album that is a true stand-out and enthusiastically recommended!' --Lilli Kuzma, host of 'Folk Festival' on WDCB Public Radio (Glen Ellyn/Chicago) 'The songwriting is so beautiful and expressive... This is an album people will listen to over and over, for many years to come.' - Jenny Bienemann - Singer/Songwriter 'I have been sitting with your beautiful and powerful CD for days now, listening to it in the car and in my apartment. I have been humming tunes in my head from songs that already feel like old friends. And I just wanted to say: WOW. And... WOW.' - Chris S. - fan.
