Amy Overby Sweet melody, wistful bridge, soulful jazz undercurrents send loved ones into the big world.


This song is the first single from my forthcoming singer-songwriter EP due out this fall.
Artwork by the amazing Amer Olson 🙂

This song talks about that small child that slowly flies away from the nest, and how the mountains, desert, and ocean are all beckoning the curious soul onward. I hope you enjoy this new work!


Little bird
Your song will take you far away from here
Desert wind, a lullaby that whispers in your ear
Always moving westward, little bird so dear

Little bird
Through streets and temples I have seen you roam
Gathering the seeds between the harvest and the stones
Always finding harmony, perfectly alone

Silence plays your song
Madness sings along

Little bird
Keep searching for that perfect melody
Fly away, your heart will take you far away from me
Find a nest by nightfall, before you reach the sea

Silence plays your song
