CARNEGIE HALL with JASON MRAZ.  Holy yes.
November  23.  Thanksgiving’s Eve.   11-23-11.  Forever engrained as one of the  most magical days of my  life.  Jason Mraz invited me to be his special  guest at Carnegie Hall.   Sold out.  Tiers and tiers of beautiful people,  everyone dressed to  the nines.  A beautiful reverence in the air.   
I have a lot of dreams in my life.  This was a big one come true.  Singing with Jason Mraz in a cardboard box would be spectacular, singing with him at Carnegie   Hall was top of the tree.  Or more like floating in outer space.  Best   Thanksgiving gift ever.  I am soaked in gratitude.
My favorite moment was singing our  new movie love song “Rated Ours” together unplugged at the old timey  microphone.  I am so grateful, still glowing.  Here’s a VIDEO (thank you!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRLs-KawDZE

PINCH ME COLLABORATIONS + VIDEOS!

I am constantly pinching myself because this feels like a wonderful dream (don’t wake me up!)
I just got back from a dreamy week in Florida with Martie Maguire & Emily Robison, the founding ladies of Dixie Chicks / Court Yard Hounds!   We wrote new songs together, had some wonderful times, and I got to watch them play a beautiful concert at my new favorite Florida spot, Studio B in Alys Beach, on a stage built over a swimming pool.  I also got the huge honor to play a couple of my songs with Martie on fiddle and Emily singing, along with two other artists I’m newly in love with, Billy Harvey and Tyler Lyle.  So much fun!!!  Such a huge huge thank you to Emily and Martie for putting this together.  I love them so much. Video herehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Mn9VtIFM0g

I also got a nice surprise when Jason Mraz joined me on stage a few weeks ago at the Hotel Cafe!  We sang two songs we wrote together, “Mirror”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_-vGysrl1w (on my new album with his golden voice!) and a brand new one called “Rated Ours” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMUXci0aUeU which was the most fun song ever to write!  Check out the videos here, big thank you to Philly and the RKOP for posting!  Jason is one of the most glowing human beings I’ve had the honor to meet, check out his website often to see some of the new incredible things he’s doing…..

NYC @ Lincoln Center!!! + Video, Mountain Stage, West Coast and Free EP!

Hello loveliest of lovelies!!

It’s the perfect day here, woke up to a layer of fog suspending over the creek, watched it crawl its way up the hillside and has since been weaving in and out of the trees and leaving a magical stillness surrounding everything.  Simply perfect.

So….. a bunch of exciting things here to share, yay!

1) Tomorrow SEPT 22 I play NEW YORK CITY @ THE LINCOLN CENTER!   

Dreamy as all heck.  And the best part for you?  Free, all ages.  Come one, come all.  Grab people off the streets!  Going to be a super fun one.  Dress up if you want, take someone special out.  8:30pm.  Target Free Thursdays, co-presented by NewSong Recordings.  David Rubenstein Atrium.  Details here.

2) MARTIE and EMILY of the COURT YARD HOUNDS / DIXIE CHICKS invited me to Texas last week to write with them!!  We had lots of fun AND wrote some new tunes we’re all excited over!!  Here’s a little video of just some of the very hard work that goes into writing songs…. Video Here.

3) MOUNTAIN STAGE PERFORMANCE airs nationwide on NPR Sept. 30th!! 
If you don’t know this program yet you’re missing out - you can find it on your local NPR station.  Larry Groce is the real deal and has brought light to so many artists over the past 27 years before anyone else knew who they were.  A true music legend in so many ways, and a true honor to perform on his show.  And if that weren’t enough, I got to share the stage with John Oates, Blame Sally, Frontier Ruckus and Moreland & Arbuckle. Check here for your local air time!

4) WEST COAST DATES added! 
Can’t wait to be in the sweet California sunshine with you all again!  We still have a few dates available for shows, if you’re interested in one in your hometown please email info@amberrubarth.com

OCT 12 - LOS ANGELES, CA @ Hotel Cafe.  Tickets soon at http://HotelCafe.com 11pm
OCT 13 - SAN DIEGO, CA @ Lestats.  
Stay classy San Diego.  http://Lestats.com  9pm

And…. (drum roll)

5) I love you because YOU ARE THE BEST.
Yep!  Thank you for being exactly you.  I am so lucky, thank you.  Here’s a FREE EP, keep it up.

Take care, can’t wait to see you out there!!!  More album info coming soon, still working all the little things out but I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available!!!  xxx

Love,
Amber

LA Concert postponed! New Album Title revealed!

Hello lovely friends,

I am officially stuck in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York.  All the roads are flooded, power lines down, entire bridges washed away.  I’m safe and grateful for being safe, but sad that the LA concert tonight at Hotel Cafe has been canceled.  My town has no power or water or phone lines, and lots of flooding and damage, a small hiccup in the overall happenings up the coast.

Luckily, I really enjoy candlelit rooms and starry skies out in the country… and I filled up a few big glass jugs with water so I’m fine.  

Sending love to all the people who are dealing with damage.  Please take good care of yourself and your loved ones.

Will let you know as soon as we can reschedule, I am really looking forward to sharing the new songs with you all, and the band we had together for LA tonight was a really really special one.  Will make it happen again soon.  And the NYC show at the Lincoln Center on 9/22 is still on as scheduled.

xx

Amber

p.s. The new album title is “A Common Case of Disappearing.”  The album has two major themes throughout it: Reflections and Light.  A common case of disappearing is about what we discover in reflections of ourselves and others.  How we run away from light, search for it again, learn to find our way without it, and ultimately find a guide from within.  It’s an ongoing cycle of the brightening and fading and rediscovering of our own true self.  And using disappearing as a way of dealing with things that we don’t otherwise know how to deal with.  Disappearing from the world into the self, disappearing from the self into the world or another person.  And through this cycle of disappearing and reappearing, searching and losing and finding again, we polish up our mirror and hold it to the light to see more clearly and reflect back and forth with others.  And we hold the mirror into light from different angles to see other sides of the world around us that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to see from where we are standing.   And when the sun’s light disappears, the moon reflects a softer version of its light down for us to see….

 

Aaahhhh, sweet morning ramblings.  I am excited to share the new music with you (if you can’t tell).

Be well out there.  Big humongous love.  xx
