Some people have a natural penchant or inclination in regards to their talent. The timeline of their experience doesn't appear to correspond with the execution. File Amy León into this category. Although she is undeﬁnable and hard to pin down. She's been singing for only three years and has recently released her wise and beautiful debut, Something Melancholy. If she must be classiﬁed, "instinctive" is perhaps the only proper division. There is an intentional immediacy in Amy's voice and writing. Not only a singer and a poet, she's also an educator and an activist. The visibility and proper representation of brown people. The equal rights of women. These are some of the issues that captivate this formerly shy child of Harlem. Currently based in Brooklyn, Amy's mission statement is the continual utilization of her art as a tool to inspire people and to implement social justice. [This episode includes "Burning in Birmingham" and "Strange Grace" from Something Melancholy in their entirety.]

It would be greatly appreciated if you would take a moment to ﬁll out this brief demographic survey. It will be used solely to help me select advertisers/sponsors for Talk Music Talk to offset the cost to produce the podcast i.e. audio editor, podcast host, traveling to guests to record. It should take less than a minute of your time. Thanks! http://www.talkmusictalk.com/survey
