Rich Marcello and Amy Jane
Below the headliner level, the music business is rich in journeyman singer-songwriters whose creativity and originality have not yet fallen victim to either the process of commercialization, or being ignored thereby. You have to stay alert to discover these artists, but it pays off. Amy Jane's album is an example of why.
