Philadelphia’s alt-pop singer/songwriter Amelia Scalies is crafting songs well beyond her years.
At 14, Amelia has already accumulated quite the list of accolades, including:
- her song ‘More Than Words’ charted Top 40/AC artist on Friday Morning Quarterback,
- selected to open for Donavon Frankenreiter by Donavon himself,
- winnner of the Chester Country Hospital Foundation Battle of the Bands,
- Strawberry Festival Battle of the Bands winner.
Amelia has also opened for Joe Robinson, Boy Wonder, WaveRadio, Dan Orlando, and Beth Goldwater. Her music has taken her from Philly to NYC to Washington as well as Wilmington.
If you aren’t impressed yet, she also plays violin on top of playing guitar and writing all her songs. In other words, Amelia has mad skills!
I Should’ve Known, released July 2013, includes 12 well crafted tunes covering universal themes of the human experience.
Amelia’s music is full of passion, wisdom, and uplifting, encouraging messages aimed at everyone from children to adults.
Her song “Don’t Let Them Win” acts as an anthem for children impacted by bullying. “What I Should’ve Said” is a reminder for all of us to cherish those we hold close. Also on the album is a nice cover of “Welcome to the Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance.
In other words, Amelia Scalies uses her music to connect with listeners of all ages. If you enjoy music by Paramore, Avril Lavigne, Sheryl Crow, or Flyleaf; you are going to dig this record.
You will probably even listen to it more than once.
