Amber Rubarth has become a fixture in New York's indie scene, named #1 Best of NYC Songwriter by Deli Magazine last year and grand prize winner of NPR's Mountain Stage New Song Contest. Over the past 7 years Amber has toured Europe, Japan and the US, including recent appearances at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center Atrium. She also composed the score for the documentary Desert.
Her songs have attracted enthusiastic praise from NPR All Songs Considered, The Huffington Post, BBC Radio, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and a Sun Studio Session airing nation-wide on PBS. She has shared the stage with many artists including Loudon Wainwright III, Jason Mraz, Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), Colin Hay, Martin Sexton and Lisa Loeb. Rubarth now composes for films as well, most recently writing music with Paul Brill for the highly acclaimed Sundance Film Festival winner Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work.
