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 is currently composing the score for the upcoming 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.

Recorded with the Chesky Records Binaural style fit for both speakers and headphones, it captures the sound of the musicians playing in great acoustic settings. And now, starting with the Binaural+ sessions, Chesky records has taken that approach to the next level. Amber Rubarth, Cellist Dave Eggar and Percussionist Chuck Palmer, join forces with their unique musical vocabulary to create Sessions from the 17th Ward. Together this innovative team fuses classic song writing and acoustic music to create a sexy, yet sophisticated album.

The catchy upbeat ‘Good Mystery’ proves Amber Rubarth’s crossover appeal, showing off her talents as a song writer during the infectious chorus and a bridge that brings the song full circle. ‘Don’t You’ brings the three musical talents perfectly allowing each artist to showcase their talents in a pure moment of bliss. Sessions from the 17th Ward makes you fall in love with Rubarth’s voice and musical style.
