For multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Amelia Ransom, music has always been more than just a hobby -- it is a way of life. Growing up in the foothills of Colorado, Amelia first picked up a violin at the age of three years old and began studying classical music. At the age of eight, Amelia discovered bluegrass and folk which solidified her passion for roots music. Multiple instruments were soon added to her arsenal, and people began to take notice of Amelia’s instrumental prowess. Early accolades range from winning ASTA’s Alternative Styles competition and being crowned champion at the RockyGrass Bluegrass Festival fiddle contest, as well as being selected as the solo mandolinist at Colorado’s annual MahlerFest, and performing at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts -- all before reaching the age of 16.
As a young adult, Amelia has fulfilled her lifelong dream of living in Nashville, TN where she writes, records, and performs with some of the industry’s best talent.
