Amy Malkoff is an American singer-songwriter and musician based on the East Coast. Her music blends Acoustic, and Pop-Folk music. She started auditioning for musical theatre productions at age 5, and by age 15 was touring in semi-professional shows. She has an AB in music from Kenyon College with graduate studies at the New England Conservatory of Music.
For seven years, she was half of the duo Raymond Gonzalez & Amy Malkoff, and during that time they produced two full length recordings, toured consistently, and were included on "When October Goes" (Rounder Records), among other compilations. In 1994, she founded the touring band Deadline Poet, which started out as an all-woman a cappella group, then a full band, and lastly a guitar/keyboard/vocal trio. The group disbanded in October of 2000, but not before producing several recordings, and appearing on a handful of compilations.
In 2000, she launched her current group, All About Buford, an award-winning pop-funk band that seems to comfortably fit in that funny niche between a cappella and folk. Their performances consist of some songs done without instruments, and some with Amy playing guitar, but always with a dedicated beatboxer and lots of rich harmonies. All About Buford was the 2003 Boston Regional Harmony Sweepstakes champions and runners-up in 2002, and Amy was awarded "Best Original Song" in '03. They have also done formal showcases at both The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and The Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference (NERFA). They have one full length CD, "Supercar", one DVD project, "Deep", some single song recordings, and they appear on several compilation CDs.
