AMY ENGELHARDT was the sole female member of Grammy-nominated, Seattle-based vocal quartet The Bobs from 1998-2011, which is when she fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. Amy’s first love was the theater; she recently made her Off-Broadway debut as composer/lyricist of the rock musical comedy BASTARD JONES (“Smartly plotted and irrepressible, with hummable pop music to match.” – TimeOutNY). Locally in Seattle, she wrote lyrics and vocal arrangements for commissioned adaptations of Carl Sagan’s CONTACT (2009 Puget Sound Theatre Award: Best New Play) and Nicholas Nickleby (Center Stage), and music and lyrics for A COMEDY OF ERAS at ACT (with the Flying Karamazov Brothers). The creator of TUNE IN TIME: New York’s Musical Theater Game Show, Amy won the Burman Award for Songwriting from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets (MAC) and was a finalist for the inaugural Ziegfeld Award for composer/lyricists. A fan of gourmet cheese and garlic, she has been known to accept either as payment for musical services. And although she splits her time between Los Angeles and New York, Amy loves spending summer weeks with assorted Karamazovs and Northwestern vaudevillians on New Old Time Chautauqua tours. Amy is the only honorary female member of the Vienna Boys Choir.
