Its catalogue has expanded to include other notable and important musicians and singers from around the country, but more importantly, a collaboration with Grammy-nominated arranger and cellist, Dave Eggar, who also plays on some of the songs' orchestral arrangements. 

We want to thank all our fans who stream our music from our site and encourage you to share it with your friends as we think our music speaks to so many people.

AmpleAngst derives its name from the Danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard who believed if you didn't have a little anxiety, your were not paying attention. 



Thunder and Rain," is an ebullient gospel-folk song with subtle lyrics that grabs you at the collar from the very first note. Using double lead singers who complement each other perfectly and three-part harmonies, the song soars even higher with Dave Eggar's sublime cello and scoring. If this is their first effort, you’ll be looking for more.”
