Former ‘American Idol’ contestant Amelia Eisenhauer set to play Oxford’s Double Decker
Amelia Eisenhauer has accomplished a lot for someone who hasn’t received her high school diploma yet.
The young singer has toured with her family band, released an album and landed in the Top 24 during the final season of “American Idol.”
Her first original album released this past January, “Fortune Cookie,” under the name Amelia Eisenhauer and the Peruvian Farm Girls is truly a family affair. The Peruvian Farm Girls is the name given to the family band along with “Fortune Cookie” producer, Bryan Ward, backing her on bass.
The Di Quoin, Illinois, via Nashville artist’s album combines original tunes (the bright and folky “Moth or Butterfly”) with well-known covers (“Fly Me to the Moon” sung by Amelia’s brother, Andy).
Amelia Eisenhauer and the Peruvian Farm Girls will perform at Double Decker at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.
