In 2012, The Amber Snider Band worked with producer/multi-instrumentalist, Gawain Mathews to release a 7 song self-titled CD "the Amber Snider Band".

This CD really captures the refreshingly unique sound that the band has been working on for the last few years playing at bars, clubs and festivals. It's a must have!

Amber Snider

Amber Snider is an award nominated pop-folk, rock, blues and country singer-songwriter with several albums, EPs, singles and music videos released to date.  

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area in a musical family, Amber started playing music when she was 4 and writing songs when she was 12. She primarily plays guitar, piano and harmonica but also enjoys playing the banjo, mandolin, accordion, lap steel guitar, ukulele and more.  

Amber and The Amber Snider Band have headlined hundreds of shows as well as were featured artists at the Bottle Rock Napa Valley music festival. Amber has also been the supporting act for artists such as Cat Powers, Clint Black, Gretchen Wilson, Judith Owen, Carl Verheyen of Supertramp, Jared & The Mill, Jim Bianco, The Raw Oyster Cult and more.  

In 2015, Amber produced and released an album entitled 'A Little Heart' in part to showcase more of her song repertoire as well as a dedication to the "little heart" that beat inside of her. In November of that year she also "produced and released" a daughter named Autumn along with husband, Aaron Snider.  

In 2016, Amber followed with 'Heroes & Heartaches' another dedication album (this time to her god-father, Francisco). This work won her a prestigious Independent Music Award nomination for Best Folk/Singer-songwriter Album of 2016 as well as Best Song in the Folk/Singer-Songwriter Category for the track "Should've Known Better" in the July 2016 Akademia song competition. 

In 2017, during the worst California fire disaster in history, Amber released the single 'A Love Song For Humanity' written during the ugliness of the most recent presidential campaign and aftermath as a way to cope and to help heal the world. Coincidentally at the 2017 ASCAP Expo in Los Angeles earlier in the year, Stevie Wonder said to Amber and the other audience members, "What we need is A Love Song For Humanity". Amber took that as a sign, finished the track and released it donating all proceeds to the fire victims through the end of the year.

 

Amber continually writes, records and plays shows both solo and with her band. From time to time she even shares the stage with her mother, Diana Wallis and their family duo "Muse Roots".
