Amy Loftus is a singer/songwriter and podcaster. Originally from Chicago, Amy moved to Nashville after a performance at the Bluebird Cafe led to songwriting opportunities on Music Row. She toured as a unique solo opener for established Nashville acts before landing in Los Angeles where she met her husband, Oliver and became a stepmom. Her new album “Sweetest Surrender” is her 7th original album to date. She is the host of an Apple podcast called “Something Better” which reaches singles and spouses every Tuesday morning along with a corresponding blog on the podcast website, and balances relationship coaching and teaching yoga with her true passion- songwriting for television and film.
I'm originally from Chicago and I did improv at the legendary Second City after I graduated from KU in Lawrence, Kansas. It was life changing.
I studied painting at Lorenzo de Medici University in Florence, Italy during college.
I once worked as Jerry Leiber's driver.
I have been doing yoga and meditating most of my life and I can do a headstand on a paddle board.
I can't stand small talk, and have been known to have deep, moving talks with total strangers.
I love angels and I believe they are surrounding me and have protected me at difficult moments in my life.
I believe we, as souls before each life, choose our parents.
I love dark chocolate.
I was on Days of Our Lives when I was 25 years old. I was in a scene used for a flashback and once turned the TV on to see my own face, while working as a nanny in Nashville. Deidre Hall was kind to me that week and I still occasionally call her when I need a pep talk.
Singing at my shows is my absolute happy place and strangely, I feel invisible while I'm singing. I forget myself in a way that is holy relief to me.
I love Dateline and True Crime analysis. It reminds me how simple life is when you listen to your gut and tell the truth.
