Ashley Cleveland w/ Amy Petty
Since her debut on Atlantic Records in 1991, Ashley Cleveland has recorded 9 critically acclaimed albums. She has won three Grammys for Best Rock Gospel Album (Lesson of Love, 1995; You Are There, 1998; Before the Daylights Shot, 2007). She was the first female to be nominated in that category and the only one to win the award three times. She has been nominated for six Dove awards and won twice for compilation records (Songs from the Loft: Praise and Worship Album of the year; The Jesus Record: Album of the Year). She received her fourth Grammy nomination in 2010 for her disc, God Dont Never Change, a collection of spirituals in the Best Traditional Gospel Album category. Three of her albums have been on Billboards year-end best list (Big Town, Bus Named Desire, Men and Angels Say) and she has been nominated twice for a Nashville Music Award (Lesson Of Love, God Dont Never Change) winning for Lesson Of Love. She was named Female Vocalist of the year in 2007 by Christianity Today.net and, in addition to her own recordings, has contributed background vocals on over 300 records over the course of her career. Her 10th album, One More Song, is due for release late in 2017.
Ashley is currently the subject of a new documentary from Big Branch productions expected to release in early 2018. The working title is: Whos The Girl?.
Ashley is a writer/essayist and has written a memoir entitled Little Black Sheep which was released September 2013 by David C Cook Publishing. She is currently working on two new memoirs.
Ashley is a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, and lives in Franklin, Tennessee with her husband Kenny Greenberg. She has three adult children, Rebecca, Henry and Lily.
Amy Pettys sound and songwriting is a compelling, complex and original soundscape that weaves a lush tapestry of folk, pop, rock and blues ballad. Art, mystery and spirituality influence and infuse her poignant, evocative and sensual songs. These sonic canvases showcase the heartfelt emotion behind her lyrics and provide a foundation over which her voice and choral harmonies soar. Often compared to Sarah McLachlan, Eva Cassidy and Jonatha Brooke, Amy Petty has a signature voice and style both familiar and stunningly rare. Her fourth release and first in nine years, The Darkness Of Birds, was recently fully funded on Kickstarter and will be out very soon!
