Two of the most beautiful humans made a car dance video for the release. It’s hilarious and wonderful. In Jed’s beautiful words, “Tell your people that they’re magic. In a world gone mad, it’s easy to get heavy. Tell your people that they’re magic. Life is a wild thing, and we probably only have one. Tell your people that they’re magic. We need to say it to our beloveds.” – #AMEN
Enjoy this car dance & my new single now available for spinning everywhere. Love to you both, Ruthie & Jed. You are magic. WATCH IT ON RUTHIE's INSTAGRAM HERE!
Recently, Amy sat down with Darling Magazine and talked about song inspiration, life balance, entrepreneurship and more fun stuff. Check out the full interview at the link below. "I hope my music will help people run faster and longer in a workout, enjoy washing dishes, look forward to traffic, find a new summer song, want to love somebody more and maybe even find their favorite sad song. Also, I want people to know we are all messy and imperfect and that that is wonderful and doesn’t affect our worthiness of being loved."" - Amy Stroup from her conversation with Darling Magazine Check it out the full interview here: Darling Magazine
My newest single MAGIC is here! Get your copy of what I hope is your new summer jam.
May 19, 2017 (Nashville, TN) — Nashville artist Amy Stroup has released her new single, "Magic," making the track available to stream and purchase at all digital outlets. “Magic” blends Stroup's penchant for a vintage sound with the lyrics of her writing partner Mary Hooper, over modern hip-hop vibes. "Magic" is the first single from her upcoming full-length album.
To create "Magic," Stroup enlisted the help of Taylor Dexter and Wesley Singerman, two LA-based producers who are a part of the SuperCookie production team and have contributed to artist's work such as Kendrick Lamar, Dolla Sign & others. “We met up at 10pm in Sherman Oaks at a studio with an outdoor basketball court and immediately hit it off with Wesley and Taylor. We had a song written and scratch track in a couple of hours and 'Magic' was born,” recounts Stroup. “The four of us had just met and were talking, but Taylor was kind of playing a sweet bass line under this beat that Wesley was messing with. We all stopped talking and I just starting singing melodies over it. The guys were really sweet, cuss word talented, and my favorite part, unassuming. We have now written two songs for my record and are working on more for the full length.”
Not only has Amy Stroup seen considerable success as a solo artist, but also as a member of the popular indie/alternative group, Sugar & The Hi-Lows. Last year, Amy and fellow bandmate Trent Dabbs toured the US and internationally including a sold out Royal Albert hall show in London with Kacey Musgraves in support of the duo’s sophomore LP, High Roller. As Sugar & The Hi-Lows, the pair has also shared the stage with Chris Stapleton, Kings of Leon, and Ingrid Michelson. As a solo artist, Amy is a member of Ten Out of Tenn, a collective of ten artists from Tennessee that formed to tour the country and give voice to the emerging indie pop Nashville sound. This group’s members have included Andrew Belle, Joy Williams, Mikky Ekko, Katie Herzig, and Trent Dabbs among others.
Amy’s songs have been featured in over 100 TV, Film, and commercial placements. Recently, her single “This is My Time” was featured on NBC’s hit show This is Us. As a writer and performer in the band Danger Twins, with partner Andrew Simple, she has seen continued success. Currently, Danger Twins has songs featured in three trailers including Pitch Perfect 3, Despicable Me 3, and the new Emoji movie. Notable brands such as Nike, Lexus, Calvin Klein, and Gatorade are currently using Danger Twins’ music in worldwide campaigns. Amy also applies her creative mindset to her full service creative company, Milkglass Creative. She and her business partner Mary Hooper serve as a creative think tank that specializes in branding, art direction, book cover design, and album design for artists including Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton, Ingrid Michaelson and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill to name a few.

So excited to announce I’m releasing the 1st single from my new album, called "Magic". On May 19th "Magic" will be available everywhere you stream or buy digital music. It’s the first look at a brand new album coming later this year that I am currently putting all the finishing touches on. (Full story below cover art)
Story behind the song MAGIC:
While working on my new record, I decided to mix things up and write with people who had different influences than me. That said, one of my main writing partners, Mary Hooper, and I set off to L.A. to take some fresh co-writing sessions. We were paired to write with two members ofSuperCookies production team in LA. We met up in Sherman Oaks at a studio with an outdoor basketball court. We immediately hit it off with Wesley and Taylor and had a song written and scratch vocal tracked in one day. As we'd just met in the session and were talking, Taylor was playing this sweet bass line under a beat that Wesley was messing with. We kind of all stopped talking and I just starting singing melodies over it. “Magic" mixes my throwback, their modern hip hop, and Mary’s sweetly-penned lyrics. Most people know Ty from his work with Dolla Sign and Wes from their work with Kendrick Lamar. Can't wait to share what we made May 19th!
