Official BIO:
"Music is who I am; the rest is what I do." Her proprietary mantra imbues all of DJ Amy dB’s essence. DJ Amy dB boasts an ostensibly comprehensive corpus of work and talent relating to music, starting in the foundational years of her life. Now considered as Chicago’s most respected mixing deejays and musical artists, Amy started her music career at the precocious age of five whilst joining her grade school’s chorus and taking up piano lessons. Her talent in voice and musicianship shone throughout her pubescent and adolescent years as she received extensive solo work and accolades naming her the top singer in elementary, middle, and high school proper. She was invited to sing in the State of Illinois’ prestigious All State Choir and All-State Honor’s Choir during her junior and senior years in high school, and was named second place Soprano in all of the State of Illinois during her senior year. Propelled with this momentum, Amy matriculated into Northwestern University pursuing three degrees and joining the honor level choirs of University Singers under the infamous Lyric Operatic Bass singer Bruce Hall, as well as the University Chorale under directorship of legendary Maestro Dr. Robert Harris who head the Operatic Music Department of the esteemed oratorio of Northwestern University for over 35 years. Her opera and voice teacher Natasha Lyashenko, one of the globe’s leading sopranos with tours in Russia, Paris Opera House, and the Lyric Opera of Chicago, heads the Northwestern University Chamber Choir where Amy still sings today within venues that range from the Chicago Symphony Center, Millennium Park, Carnegie Hall, and Lyric Opera House to name a few.

Her pioneering insight and visceral fortitude help hinge her vision in educating the masses about true artist talent and purity of musical essence. She grew famous for her firm and oftentimes vocal grounding on music, impelling celebrated music producers like John Curley of Pure Future productions and Vince Lawrence of Slang Music Studios to retain her services as consult for an indefinite time.
