Bay Bridge Band welcomed female vocalist Ami Russ in May 2016.
Ami grew up in rural Florida on the banks of the Blackwater River and was raised by a strong, single mother who taught her, by example, not to just dream about success but to work hard for it. As a result of this upbringing, she has become a force to be reckoned with. A young woman who dishes out attitude without compromising class and is well known for her powerhouse vocals and lyrical vulnerability.
Ami is a singer/songwriter whose captivating lyrics beguile the listener into a journey. Her lyrics are reflective of a modest upbringing which helped foster her creativity. “My childhood centered around family, church, and music. We created our own fun, and were encouraged to let our imaginations run wild. I’m pretty sure that’s why I write songs today.”
“I have been blessed to perform and travel the world and have collected some of the most incredible stories. Stories that I know, when people hear them, will make them feel a little less alone. After all, that’s what music is all about.” Ami Gussie Russ is an artist whose refreshingly authentic sound will leave you wanting more.
