She could sing for your grandparent’s anniversary, your niece’s birthday or your uncle’s funeral. Amy just knows how to do it right. When Amy sings, we listen.

In Dreams is Edmonton singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Amy van Keeken's fourth solo release and first full-length LP. It follows her 2016 EP, All the Time, which earned two Edmonton Music Awards nominations — Best Folk/Roots Recording and Best Female Artist.
Amy began recording In Dreams in September 2017 and nurtured it over the fall and winter through a number of organic, intimate and collaborative sessions with co-producer Patrick Michalak who also engineered and mixed the album.
Mastered by Mitch Holtby (Mitchmatic) the album features musical performances by Nick “Smokey” Johnson (vocals, guitars), Peter Hendrickson (drums), Doug Organ (vibes), Darren Radbourne (cornet, organ), and Nathaniel Wong (strings).
Along with being a performing musician, Amy is a voice teacher, a broadcaster, and a rock band mentor for youth. She is a member of folk/roots band The AwesomeHots, experimental rock band Mysticeti, and was a founding member of rock band The Secretaries.
