Amy Pickard & The Cradlers


Amy Pickard sings bittersweet country songs that blur the lines between folk music, traditional Americana, and hate mail. Her spare arrangements and rough country flatpicking complement a writing and performing style that is intimate and to the point. With a backing band of accomplished musicians, Ramon Monras-Sender (BC Camplight, Hoots & Hellmouth), Joshua Marcus (Like Moving Insects, Fan of Friends), Aron Dunlap, and Claudio DePujadas, she’s just finished recording her first solo album, Cut from the Hopeless, after fronting the country band She-Haw for seven years. With She-Haw she released three records, including one for Glasgow-based label Shoeshine Records, and had the pleasure of touring with Alejandro Escovedo, Laura Cantrell, and Jason Ringenberga. Amy has also composed and performed music for the internationally-renowned Pig Iron Theatre Company, as well as Headlong Dance Theater, Iron Age Theater Company, the Broken Hipsters, and the Jangling Sparrows.
