Amy Schugar - An artist whose time has come...
Before working with Michael Schenker and getting Japanese Record Deal,
Amy Schugar had been developing her skills as a songwriter, arranger, singer
and guitarist. Amy seemed to come from a musical background from the start.
Her God Mother is the very famous Amalia Mendoza and her Mother was a famous
Bullfighter in the 50's and singer named Carla Lee. Carla Lee is also
featured in a book called "Women and the Bullring" by Murial Feiner.
A chance meeting with Mr. Schenker (UFO, Scorpions, MSG) while attending
an Eric Johnson Concert Amy was noticed by Mr. Schenker as she was singing
and playing Eric's 57-59 Stratocaster on the side of the stage.
Michael was impressed with what he heard and saw, and the two began their
songwriting collaboration. The duo recorded the album "Under Construction",
featuring Schenker's soulful guitar playing and Amy's magical voice.
