Amy Sorinio’s life is life is a succession of different kinds of music
Amy started her career in the Philippines, where she was born. While growing up, as a 6 year old girl, she joined the church choir until college. There she learned to use her ears as a tool for her music. She enjoyed performing and participated in many contest during her High School years. Her basic style was Original Pilipino Music (OPM) and International Music.
Later, when she was grown up, she started performing Pop and Standard Jazz in Jazz Bars with a pianist and/ or backing tracks. At that time her entertainment skills started to develop. She learned how to communicate with audience and feel the atmosphere to choose which style would fit on that certain evening. “I still remember when the pianist brought his Jazz books and taught me to sing a certain jazz song” – on the job training.
After a few years Amy got an offer to perform in Japan, which she accepted, and stayed there for 6 months. This didn’t only teach her the Japanese style of music but also their beautiful culture. This was the start of Amy’s International career.
After performing for six months in Japan, Amy continued to do her gigs in Philippines and at the same time she joined a band that was about to perform in UAE (United Arab Emirates). While she performed with this band, Amy was introduced to Soul, Funk and Motown music. For Amy, everything is welcomed in her learning process, she loves stepping out of her comfort zone and she is always eager to learn new stuff and adopt it in her style. With the band she was also able to travel and perform in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
After her United Arab Emirates adventure she went back to the Philippines and performed there again. She joined a new band and started practicing to perform in The Netherlands- Europe.
From the Philippines, Japan, Abu Dhabi, Dubai then The Netherlands, Amy’s musical journey continues.

“There were ups & downs of course, but I’ve used to go forward and learn from it. I am blessed to have all the love and support of my loved ones, who keep me going.”
After staying many years in The Netherlands, Amy’s journey continued when she signed a contract to perform in Aruba. It was a huge decision but yet another opportunity for Amy to grow as an Artist/Entertainer.
In Aruba Amy started to perform at several locations on the island. She performed in Fusion Tapas Wine & Bar, Tamarin Resorts, Divi Resorts, Divi Phoenix, Mulligans & Windows on Aruba. She played with the best Jazz musicians on the island. After her contract, Amy stayed on the island to continue as a Solo Vocalist/ Entertainer.
