& THE AZTEC DIAMONDS
After a sell out performance on March 19th Ami Grady is now taking stage with her full band on Sunday May 25th. Her previous albums, Precious Lines and 24 Hours received rave reviews in Nationwide press and her music is now evolving into a mature, melodic, underground sound. Her single, The Philosophy Tree is available on i-tunes. As Jackie Hayden described her music as ‘a serious contender on the world class stage’ her music has finally reached the level that will see this prediction come to light. Do not miss this talented, unique performer play live in this intimate setting upstairs at Whelans on May 25th. You will be glad you took the time!

“O’Gradys finest ever vocal performance” **** Jackie Hayden. Hotpress (Album: 24 Hours)
“Her voice is a taut bareboned thing of intermittent beauty reminiscent of Amiee Mann in her Till Tuesday’s Days. It proves its worth, particularly on raido friendly tracks such as ‘Time Flies’ and ‘That’s Life.’ Siobhan Long, The Ticket, Irish Times. (Album: Precious Lines)
“It is her voice that scores the most brimming with warmth and compassion on every track. The songs hang together so cohesively that, after a few plays, you feel like you’ve known them all your life…. sounds like she could be a serious contender on the world class stage especially within the American soft rock market”. Jackie Hayden, Hotpress. (Album: Precious Lines)
“AM has a wonderfully rich, mature voice … superb title track” Sarah McQuaid, Evening Herald. 2005 – (Album: Precious Lines)
