Live Music with Amelia Presley
Friday August 5th
For Amelia Presley, as with many people, music is often times a safety net 100 feet below the tightrope. She always wrote songs, even as a child when she had to keep them hidden in her mind,tucked away like her many other secrets. In a clamorous need to fund her music career with very limited life options to do that, Amelia enlisted into the US Coast Guard at the age of 21 where she spent 5 years as a machinery technician. The selling of her horse and trailer and an overnight trip down to Nashville resulted in her first studio session, and soon after, live performances on stage. In the following years she recorded and released a handful of singles including “Get Lucky” that was featured on iTunes New Artist Spotlight and iTunes Hot Tracks under the country music genre, one EP and a full length album called “No Pony Ride.” In 2015 she embarked on her first legitimate tour alongside Ronnie McDowell, Logan Brill, Amber Hayes, Farewell Angelina and Megan Moreaux. Her absolute love for performing has led to several coveted appearances including the CMA Music Festival and The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.
