Biography

AMBER RUBARTH has become a fixture in New York’s indie scene, named #1 Best of NYC Songwriter by Deli Magazine last year and grand prize winner of NPR’s Mountain Stage New Song Contest.
Her fourth album A Common Case of Disappearing produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) highlights her raw, vulnerable voice against a driving band. The album debuted at #13 on iTunes Songwriter charts and features duets with Jason Reeves and Jason Mraz.

Over the past 7 years Amber has toured Europe, Japan and the US, including recent appearances at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center Atrium. She is currently composing the score for the upcoming documentary Desert Runners. Her songs have attracted enthusiastic praise from NPR All Songs Considered, The Huffington Post, BBC Radio, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and a Sun Studio Session airing nation-wide on PBS.

At 21 years old, Amber decided to quit her career as a chainsaw sculptor in Nevada in order to pursue music. She taught herself guitar, began playing open mics and recorded her songs, which soon received over 1.5 million listens on MySpace through word of mouth alone. She has shared the stage with many artists including Loudon Wainwright III, Jason Mraz, Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), Colin Hay, Martin Sexton and Lisa Loeb. Rubarth now composes for films as well, most recently writing music with Paul Brill for the highly acclaimed Sundance Film Festival winner Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work.
