Amie Miriello

Before Amie Miriello landed in New York to pursue a career in music, the Connecticut native already had more than 10 years of experience singing in front of an audience. The only problem: it was musical theatre, and as Amie tells it: “I could sing, but I couldn’t act worth a damn. I was basically the chorus girl in every show.” In order to get her powerful voice into school productions, directors resorted to casting her as “Orphan 7” in Oliver and even, memorably, the actual yellow-brick road in The Wizard of Oz.

Before Amie Miriello landed in New York to pursue a career in music, the Connecticut native already had more than 10 years of experience singing in front of an audience. The only problem: it was musical theatre, and as Amie tells it: “I could sing, but I couldn’t act worth a damn. I was basically the chorus girl in every show.” In order to get her powerful voice into school productions, directors resorted to casting her as “Orphan 7” in Oliver and even, memorably, the actual yellow-brick road in The Wizard of Oz.

Amie’s difficulty playing any role aside from her straight-talking, take-no-prisoners self probably explains why the attempt to translate her vision to a band turned out to be a false start. Dirtie Blonde, Amie’s first signed project, had the olive-skinned, Italian brunette regularly touching up her roots while singing songs that owed more to their collaborators than her own heart. “It was impossible to lose myself in the music,” she notes. But Amie remained persistent and her passion for expressing herself through song never faltered.

Naturally then, it’s Amie’s honesty that’s impossible to miss on I Came Around, her BellaSonic/Jive/Zomba debut. She insistently declares, “I’m learning as I go” on the chorus of the title track and first single, offers the spot-on observation that “I’m older than my skin is in this life” on the piano ballad “Snow,” and flirts with a crush on “Brand New. « hide
