Greetings!

I'm excited to digitally release my first holiday album called "Be the Peace". You can find it on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon MusicSpotify and CDBaby. I never anticipated doing a holiday/Christmas album until the last few years when my mom has been asking for one. And this year, I decided, "Yes, I'm gonna do it!" As it would turn out, my mom was onto something -- I had SO MUCH fun recording these songs with my fabulous musician friends in the studio.

A BIG THANK YOU to all these folks for helping me make this creation: Steven Lee Tracy (production, percussion), Jay Trapp (bass), Ralph Gilmore (drums), Danny Krieger (electric guitar), Sabra Faulk (harmony vocals, guitar), Alex Flores (sax), Seth Murzyn (viola), Casey Hadland (vibraphone), Nick Coventry (violin, viola), Michael G. Ronstadt (cello), Joe Ferguson (ukulele, mandolin, guitar), and Celeste Goguen Tracy (harmony vocals).

I will have a CD release celebration and holiday concert at Desert Hills Lutheran Church in Green Valley, AZ. Click here for info & tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3738481It’s going to be a super fun show with the crew of musicians who contributed their musical genius to this new album. We will play songs off the album, as well as a fun selection of other holiday songs that will feature everyone. AND for those who still love to listen to CDs, the physical CDs WILL be available at the concert - for those who attend, you will get the new album for a discounted special of $10!

Wishing you peace,

Amber

Amber Norgaard Featured Guest at Network of Extraordinary Women Luncheon

Vivace Restaurant, 6440 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson, AZ

Join us to learn how Amber Norgaard uses music as a healing art and instrument for social change at the NEW Luncheon. RSVP by Sunday, September 9th. Cost: $32 and includes a delicious meal, a beverage along with a yummy desert (includes tax and tip). For questions regarding registration, please contact Jennifer at: askforjenn@gmail.com or text 773-355-1208 .

Described as “poet, peace-warrior, healer” (Tucson Lifestyle) and “Tucson’s folk-rock goddess” (Natural Awakenings), Amber Norgaard is known for her passionate vocal/piano/guitar delivery, eloquent lyrics and graceful melodies that inspire hope. Growing up on an Iowa farm, Amber had a calling to be of service to the world. After graduating from Creighton University College of Nursing, she set off to do volunteer work in the Dominican Republic and Oregon. Eventually, she settled in southwestern Alaska working as a registered nurse. For six years, she lived 400 miles off the road system and was immersed within the indigenous population. It was here that she learned to use music as a source of connection to transcend language and cultural barriers. This discovery was what led her to pursue her passion—using music as healing art to foster compassion, spirituality and promote positive social change. She has released five full-length albums and multiple singles, toured nationally, opened for Judy Collins, Kenny Loggins, and Michael McDonald, received accolades for her songwriting, written songs for multiple non-profit organizations and film projects, and speaks at universities and organizations on "Music as a Healing Art and Instrument for Social Change".

Network of Extraordinary Women (NEW): Our mission is to link a diverse group of women, by collaborating, supporting and sharing information that impacts our lives. We are looking forward to seeing you!
