About Amy Plachta

Amy was born and grew up in London, Ontario. After high school, she spent six years in St. John’s, Newfoundland, where she studied history and religion at Memorial University of Newfoundland. She eventually returned to London to pursue a career in the music industry. After graduating Fanshawe College’s Music Industry Arts program, she began working for the Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency in Toronto, Ontario.

Amy began composing as a child, initially exploring orchestral music as a composer and cellist throughout her teens, before moving on to contemporary songwriting as a guitarist and vocalist in her twenties. She has also poured her creativity into the written word, first as a poet, then later as a journalist for Fanshawe College’s Interrobang and her college program’s newsletter. After graduation, she spent some time blogging for So’lano Music Group, and now she focuses on album reviews on her own site.

Amy is now back in London, though she continues to work for the Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency. Her main interests focus around her job, her church, her health, and her computer. As a writer, she blogs about her own life, and is also working on her first novel.
