Amber Norgaard is #Flyah





Described as “poet, peace-warrior, healer…one of Tucson’s great musical trailblazers” (Tucson Lifestyle Magazine), Amber Norgaard is known for her passionate vocal/piano/guitar delivery and poignant lyrics that inspire a sense of hope.
Prior to launching her music career in 2004, Norgaard worked as a registered nurse in southwestern Alaska for six years. During this time, she lived 400 miles off the road system and was immersed within the indigenous population. It was here that she learned to use music as a source of connection to transcend language and cultural barriers.  This discovery was what ultimately led her to pursue her passion—using music as healing art to foster compassion, spirituality and promote positive social change.
In 2007, Norgaard was the runner-up in the California-based Winery Music Awards.  That year, she was also voted Tucson’s “Up & Coming Artist of the Year.” Since then, she has been recognized in several songwriting competitions, was a runner-up in the 2011 Tucson Area Music Awards Folk Performance Award category and is a finalist in the 2012 Tucson Folk Festival Songwriting Competition. She has released four full-length albums.
Amber tours nationally. She has opened for Judy Collins, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald and Ellis Paul and performed at events and music festivals from California to Massachusetts and Texas to Alaska. In addition to performing, Amber writes music for film and humanitarian organizations. She speaks on the topic of "Music as a Healing Art & Instrument for Social Change" at colleges.

Amber Norgaard, a nurse turned musician, has a passion for healing through song. 
Amber wrote "Raise Me Up" after visiting Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary - a horse rescue in Southern Arizona. Hearing the tragic stories of the horses and how human compassion turned the story around, as well as the stories of healing that transpired for the volunteers working with the horses, Amber was inspired to connect the human journey to that of the horses.

Her words describe this reflection:
"They teach us no distance is too far
And no heart too separate
To unite, emerge from the ruins and resurrect in peace.
In their presence, we sense our own human potential
For true strength is in serving
And true power happens when we raise each other up."
"Raise Me Up" is Amber Norgaard's first single release on iTunes and Amazon, as well as her first official music video release on YouTube. Read more about her experience of filming a music video with horses in her blogpost "The Gift of Surrender" (http://ambernorgaard.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-gift-of-surrender.html). Since starting her singer/songwriter career in 2004, she has released four albums and one EP. She tours nationally and writes for many humanitarian organizations, tapping into her niche of healing through art and music.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back.
