Amy Edwards and the Hi-Fis (or the Hi-Fi Society) came together in Austin, Texas in late 2014. Friends for years, Amy and Yates finally had the timing work out to start this project together. Mainly straightforward, modern, guitar driven rock 'n' roll, Magic Volumes 1 & 2 pushed them into new musical territory with the adventurous concept and production and the nineties trip-hop vibe of Vol. 2.



Amy Edwards, 47, picked up a guitar just a handful of years ago, when she and some friends thought it would be fun to learn. Her 'jump in and do it' attitude has led to two solo albums she wrote and released in 2014, an EP with the Hi-Fis titled "Get LIVE" produced by AJ Vallejo, the single "Superstar", the 2017 EP "Little Birds", and the 2018 double album "Magic Vols. 1 & 2." When she's not rocking, she's an on-air personality at Austin360 Radio, a podcast host of Rock Your Life with Amy Edwards, author, writer, sometime actress and mom to two girls.
