Amy Unauthorized began as a dream to put a soul band together. Drummer and Musical Director Cory Graves had always loved the genre, and later the idea of doing a project based around Amy Winehouse’s music, but found it difficult to find the right people for this project.

However, with the help of guitarist and friend Chris Motter, Bay Area bassist Jacob Freedman, and the inspired recruitment of their peers from around the Bay Area, the band was soon assembled – all that was left was to bring this wonderful music back to the stage.
