It's hard to believe that 10 years have passed since the first inception of Amelia began to be heard by the universe. A brilliant but bittersweet 10 years that began in 2002 when Teisha and Scott first met and began playing duo gigs and recording songs on a 4-track. Scott had just come from a successful sprint with the Flatirons and Teisha had been playing with her uncle's in the band Say Uncle. It wasn't long after they met and began playing together that they brought in Scott's bandmates Jesse Emerson and Richard Cuellar. They recorded their first album Somewhere left to fall in 2003.
In 2004, they released After All as fans sprung up all over the globe. In 2005, Amelia released a live recording called "Por Avion" and in 2006 drummer Richard left the band. For a brief time, Amelia brought on two additional players (Michael Papillo and Stevie Moretti) and in this formation, toured up and down the West Coast. In 2006, Amelia contributed a song to the Elliott Smith tribute album "To: Elliott From: Portland" and continued playing as a trio until 2008 when they released A Long, Lovely List of Repairs (engineered and produced by Mark Orton of Tin Hat).<more>
