Eclectic mix of poignant lyrics, passionate vocals and raw, heartfelt music that melds contemporary folk and light rock.

Amber's debut album Soul in Motion is a collection of songs reflective of the human journey. The songs range from Amber's early days of songwriting, such as "Still In Here," a song portraying the struggle of finding and losing oneself, to her more recent work exploring similar themes, such as "Soul in Motion," the title track of the CD. The album takes the listener on a journey through emotional pondering about following one's calling in "Heed," to reflections about anger and emptiness fueling injustice and war in "Blessed Be This Mess," to the social plight of migrant persons in "Camino Del Diablo." Amber processes societal situations and human experiences through poignant lyric writing and passionate vocal melodies complemented by her piano and guitar playing.

The making of this album occurred in Alaska and Arizona.
