Amy Engelhardt BIO

As Mother Superior of the Chattering Order of St. Beryl, AMY ENGELHARDT recently led a choir of singing, silly Satanic nuns through Hollywood, Austin, New York and London in the promo campaign for Amazon Prime’s GOOD OMENS. After invading red carpet events and Q&As with Neil Gaiman and industrially comic flashmobbing, Amy produced the nuns’ EP Unholy Night for Amazon Music. The marketing campaign won seven Clio Awards and a Gold Award from AdWeek.
No stranger to travel, Amy spent a lot of time in rental cars from 1998-2011 as the sole female voice/writer/arranger for eclectic, Grammy®-nominated vocal "band without instruments," The Bobs. She recorded 4 CDs and toured extensively with the band, from Lincoln Center’s American Songbook to Northwest Folklife to the Pori (Finland) Jazz Festival. Her brainchild, Rhapsody In Bob - Gershwin's masterwork arranged for vocal orchestra (The Bobs) and blues-infused piano (Bob Malone of the John Fogerty Band) premiered at Wolf Trap.
As composer/lyricist, Amy made her Off-Broadway debut with the sold-out run of BASTARD JONES at the cell theatre, a nominee for the Off-Broadway Alliance's Best New Musical and a Richard Rodgers Award finalist. Other theatrical work includes lyrics for TESLA, TRIPTYCH (book/music/lyrics) for the New York Transit Museum's Platform Series, lyrics/vocal arrangements for commissioned adaptations of Carl Sagan's CONTACT with Hungarian rocker Peter Sipos (2009 Puget Sound Theater Award – Best New Play), NICHOLAS NICKLEBY with electric violinist Eyvind Kang at Seattle’s CenterStage, music/lyrics for the Bobs/Flying Karamazov Brothers collaboration A COMEDY OF ERAS at ACT Seattle. Incidental music credits include MOTHER, MAY I at Baltimore’s Strand (dir. Rain Pryor). Amy was librettist/creative consultant for the PBS concert special Call Me Irresponsible (2011 Telly Award, Best Original Programming) featuring Ashley Brown (Broadway’s Mary Poppins).
Her "one-Amy one-act" play with music, IMPACT will premiere online in May 2021. A co-production of the cell theatre in NYC (where she is a resident artist), Michigan's Playhouse at White Lake (where it was live-captured) and Dimly Wit Productions, IMPACT explores the simplicity of human kindness as a counterbalance to tragic global events.
As a session/concert singer, Amy’s diverse credits include Jurassic World, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Real Steel, Jim Henson's Animal Jam (Discovery Kids/TLC), Barbra Streisand's Timeless, the LA Bach Festival, Neil Young's Living With War and Paul Provenza’s SATIRISTAS. As a singer/songwriter, she tours her musical solo show ("Riotously funny!" - BroadwayWorld) in clubs and house concerts and appears annually in Harry Shearer & Judith Owen’s Holiday Show (tours/Disney Concert Hall/BAM). Amy's solo CD, Not Gonna Be Pretty, was hailed as the "unlikely and intriguing marriage of Nellie McKay and Meat Loaf." She is currently recording her second album, Finish What You, which she swears will still be released in 2020.
Amy co-created TUNE IN TIME, New York City’s Musical Theater Game Show, which ran for 3 seasons at the York Theatre (“The BMI writers workshop on steroids...musical theater, cerebral fun and games pushed to 11… a joyous, hilarious romp”). She has received the Burman Award for Songwriting from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets (MAC), has been a resident composer at the Nautilus Composer/Librettist Studio in Los Angeles and a resident playwright at the National Winter Playwrights Retreat.
A graduate of Syracuse University (Musical Theatre) and Berklee College of Music (Songwriting/Arranging), Amy is a proud member of SAG/AFTRA, The Dramatists Guild, MAESTRA, ASCAP, the "I Hate Cilantro" and "Giant Army of Tuxedo Cats" Facebook Groups and the only honorary female member of the Vienna Boys Choir. She splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City.
