A BIG thank you to Stubby’s House of Christmas for reviewing my “Be the Peace” album. Check it out here:   http://www.stubbyschristmas.com/home/dont-you-forget-about-these

I recently wrapped up a song collaboration with artist Diana Madaras and filmmaker Sandra Levine in honor of the Madaras Gallery 20th Anniversary Celebration. Diana awoke to her calling later in life – a story with which I resonate becoming a musician after having a nursing career. It was interesting to lyrically weave in the theme of following one's call with the imagery of Diana's paintings. The song serves as a soundscape to a video produced by Sandra Levine that features Diana's vibrant artwork. You can check out the “Poetry of Light” song and video below.

I’m currently writing for my new singer/songwriter album that we’ll record this fall.  I’ve got new material and am digging into my “unfinished songs” archive to give life to the “old” in a “new” way.  

Isn’t that what life is? A constant re-invention of all the pieces of the past into each new day?  ‘Tis a beautiful journey.  I’ll keep you posted.  

I am beyond grateful for the community of support that I’ve had in the last 15 years of pursuing my musical dreams.  

Thank you for visiting my website.  

Wishing you peace as we continue to spin into 2019.  

Amber

Holiday Concert and CD Release Celebration!

 —  —

Desert Hills Lutheran Church, 2150 S. Camino Del Sol, Green Valley, AZ 85622

Kick off the holiday season by joining Amber Norgaard and friends for a concert celebrating the release of Amber's new "Be the Peace" holiday album.

Amber's mom has been asking for years for a holiday album. Finally, in 2018, Amber decided that life is short, and 'tis the season to make that album. And because holidays are about gathering with the ones you love, she asked her friends to be part of this new creation. From a heartland rock rendition of "Rudolph" to "I'll Be Home for Christmas" sung in English and Spanish to her own original title track "Be the Peace" and more, this show (and new CD!) will uplift your holiday spirits.

She'll be joined by the musicians that contributed their musical genius to the new album - Ralph Gilmore (drums), Jay Trapp (bass), Danny Krieger (electric guitar), Sabra Faulk (vocals, guitar), Alex Flores (sax), Seth Murzyn (viola), and Joe Ferguson (vocals, mandolin, guitar).

Join us for this special holiday concert and CD release celebration!!
