Hi, for those of you who don't know me, I am singer/songwriter - Marty Roberts
I was born in Rochester, New York and still live in the area. I have been writing songs and singing since I was in 8th grade. When I was in college I use to perform at coffee houses and local parties. My first CD "First Time...At Last", was released in 2002 and includes 11 original songs (like "Face of an Angel" and " I did the Best I could...so Far"). My second CD, "Second Chances" was released on December 1st of 2004. My third CD, "3rd Times a Charm" was released in 2012. It includes 12 originals and 2 cover songs. Check out some of my audio samples on my "Music" page and if you like what you hear, come to see me at one of my upcoming performances. I'd love to hear what you think about my web site and my performances, so feel free to send me an E-mail. I hope you enjoy my music and all different types of music everyday of your life.

Singer-songwriter, artist from Long Island, NY Amanda Ashley, raised in Holtsville, Long Island, began playing the piano at the age of six, learned guitar and also studied violin for eight years. Her parents became wise early on to her musical talents, and influenced her to pursue her aspirations in music. Among her influences are Elton John, and Billy Joel, Mary J. Blige, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Ella Fitzgerald, Fiona Apple, and Alicia Keys. She began writing and composing at the early age of fourteen, and was performing solo by the age of sixteen in local coffee houses. Amanda performs both originals and a variety of popular covers with an original twist (classic rock, pop, top 40, Motown, 80's mixed with R&B and soul). My original music is a mixture of blues, pop, soul, with elements of folk ( think Alicia Keys meets, Donna Summers, meets Janice Joplin).
Since 1994 Steve and Lisa Lowden have been playing music together as a couple and as creative energies that found each other. Combining their love of acoustic oldies to recent greats, they bring great harmonies, beautiful melodies to any room.
