Described as “poet, peace-warrior, healer” (Tucson Lifestyle Magazine) and “Tucson’s folk-rock goddess” (Natural Awakenings Magazine), Amber Norgaard is known for her passionate vocal/piano/guitar delivery, eloquent lyrics and graceful melodies that inspire hope.
Prior to launching her music career in 2004, Norgaard worked as a registered nurse in southwestern Alaska. 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, toured nationally, opened for Judy Collins, Kenny Loggins, and Michael McDonald, received accolades for her songwriting, and written songs for multiple non-profit organizations and film projects.
