Amy refers to herself as a “canary” in the Big Band Era sense: the age when a girl singer stood at the front of the bandstand and simply told a story through music. There are few things in life she enjoys more than engaging an audience in song – especially with a full band or orchestra. She is "for hire" to serve a unique need in the southwest Florida musical market: she is "on call" as a sub vocalist for many popular musical groups in the area.
Although trained as a classical vocalist from the age of 15, Amy has discovered joy in singing all types of music over the years including pop/top-40/dance, jazz standards, Broadway, and rock. Her background includes a wide array of studio session work, dramatic performances, spokes modeling, industrial film acting, and live appearances ranging from singing and dancing on the cruise ship circuit to National Anthem performances at sporting events, including Florida Everblades hockey games.
Amy is Lead Vocalist, Marketing Manager and active board member with the Naples Big Band as well as an active praise and worship leader with the North Naples Church contemporary worship team. She has appeared as an invited guest soloist with the Sarasota Jazz and Concert Bands, Music Makers Show Band and Gulf Coast Big Band. Additionally, Amy is a regular guest performer with the Bonita Springs and Naples Concert Bands.
Amy and her husband, Patrick Gilhuly, enjoy being silly at home with the family, cooking, hanging out with friends, going to church, playing in the pool or gulf, reading, movies, and fun day trips whenever possible.
