Amelia Eisenhauer’s love affair with the violin began at the tender age of four. From the stages of her native southern Illinois to the honkytonks of Nashville Tennessee to the national spotlight of American Idol this young performer has paid some serious dues and her short 19 years. With powerful vocals Keith Urban described to as “soulful potency” and the gift for all things strings, when it comes to performance Amelia Eisenhauer delivers.
Trained as a classical violinist and crowned as a champion fiddle player, a chance encounter with Mississippi producer Bryan W. Ward tapped into an even deeper side of her voice and musicianship. The time spent recording in Mississippi had a profound effect on her and her music. Her most recent collaboration, Black Dog, with 2017 Grammy winner blues man Bobby Rush is just one of the crowning achievements of her young career.
She has performed the Double Decker fest in Oxford, MS; Music City Roots, Franklin, TN; Panoply Arts fest in Huntsville, AL; Bratfest in Madison, WI; Beloit Folk & Blues Festival in Beloit, WI; the MusikFest in Bethlehem, PA; Boom Days in Fort Payne, AL; and the Kentuck Festival Of The Arts in Northport, AL, Fair St. Louis and Flood City Festival during 2017-2018. Amelia is currently an MP&E student at Berklee School of Music in 2019.
