As a lifelong vocalist who grew up playing the piano, Amelia graduated from Tufts University as a music major and started her career in arts administration. Inspired by the artists she met during those years, she taught herself guitar and began writing songs in notebooks that travelled with her across cities and apartments. After landing in Brooklyn on March 1st, one week before the COVID-19 pandemic began, she built a DIY home recording and production studio and has been writing songs ever since.
Awelia is Amelia’s indie-folk singer-songwriter alias. Awelia’s first EP, Wishtide, released November 20, 2020. Wishtide alludes to the pull of a dream and the ebbs and flows of a relationship over time. She is forever grateful to Kyle Joseph (guitar, bass), Bennett Eiferman (drums) and Godfrey Furchtgott (strings) for their talents, generosity and patience.
Amelia’s next album is in progress :).
