"Singular" is the word that best describes Amy Steinberg. Uplifting, enlightening and hilarious with a voice that can burn the house down, Amy Steinberg is singer, songwriter and storyteller like none other. She plays the piano and guitar with her own swingy rhythmic bounce, injecting shades of jazz, rock, hip hop, and poetry, all with a theatrical flair. Deeply soulful, with her bombastic belt and she sings of self-love, open-mindedness, and the holiness of everything. Deeply involved with the New Thought and Positive Music world, she plays at conferences, churches, venues and festivals all over the country. Amy’s song "Burning into the High" won the Personal Transformation category of the 2016 Posi Awards. Her song, "One with Everything," has been nominated this year!
