"...2 stars --Jay Hardwig AMY ATCHLEY..."
"...New York City has called and two more longtime Austinites have answered, as pop princess Amy Atchley and husband/jazz saxman Elias Haslanger report their relocation to the Big Apple. The couple both played farewell sets in town on Wednesday, with Haslanger explaining that the sudden departure can't be helped, as "the day after I flew into NYC, I found a nice apartment in Park Slope..."
"...Both he and his wife Amy Atchley, a singer he met at the UT School of Music, landed good jobs in midtown. Every day when he got home from work, Haslanger would play his horn and write music, frequenting jam sessions and nonpaying gigs at night in well-known jazz haunts such as the Blue Note, 55 Bar, Smalls, Birdland, and Smoke..."
"...In the Nineties, Amy Atchley flitted between NYC and this Southwest music mecca she currently calls home with husband Elias Haslanger. The seven songs here constitute her first release in five years, and Where You Go settles into a laid-back ethos blasted with a summery, Barton Springs vibe..."
"...Amy Atchley entertained local audiences in the pop trio Fabu while attending the University of Texas in the 1990s and has since put her pure voice to successful use in commercial ventures.

"...The rest, "Erotic Mystics," "Temple of Spheres," "In Through Time," and "Split Between Two Worlds" follows suit. Guest vocalist Amy Atchley beguiles Hooverphonically on the standout "Le Zephyr," while Katherine Kalinski and O'Madden duet somewhat Sky Cries Mary on "Scripture of the Anima." Now that Brendan Perry and the queen of goth arias Lisa Gerrard have decided Dead Can Dance separately, maybe O'Madden can pick up a vocalist cheap...."
"...The weekend schedules rotate the same cast of headliners over and over and the last weekly residents to become big-draw weekend acts were Breedlove, Sunflowers, and Steamroller, all more than four years ago. For better or worse, Crooks says his midweek bar receipts seem to indicate something of a surge; the club's owner says that young local acts such as Kitty Gordon, Amy Atchley, Galapagos, Love Supreme, Creeker, Sun Vocina, and of course, Piggiehat could have grown into solid weekend headliners within a year..."
