FILM ESTHER AND THE PRINCE FILM written by Amia Franz

Amia took 5 years, 2017 – 2021 studying and working 4 drafts, until the script was finalized in November 2021.

RECORDING EXTRAORDINARY LOVE 11 SONG ALBUM

In 2022, Black Bird Studios, Nashville producer, Bryan Clark,  will produce  Amia’s vocals over her own music productions for 11 brand new songs! The singles and the full album she is calling “Extraordinary Love” and the title song is “Extraordinary Love” (unfinished demo) https://youtu.be/XXn5TGqa0pA .

I am honored to have Nashville producer Kara Greskovic, who is the pre-studio recording music and vocal review producer for all 11 songs. As of 5/13/2022, we have 8 more songs for her to review, and here is her first one for music production with the vocal guide review I will post this month as well.

 Extraordinary Love – “Amia’s production style takes the listener on a journey. From a beautiful string intro to electric guitars playing strumming throughout, the listener is sure to be thrown into a musical wonderland. The soothing vocals are the cherry on top to this piece that you’re sure to replay after the first listen. This is a huge improvement from the first demo draft I heard on Amia’s youtube channel (go to Amia Franz Official) , super impressed! ” – Kara Greskovic, Nashville Music Producer (karagreskovic.com)

You can go to Amia’s website about page https://www.amiamusic.com/about-9musicartistamia and read all prestudio reviews from Kara, musicians being hired to perform some parts in Amia’s productions and other 2022 upcoming media reviews as they happen.

The Black Bird studio session time, to record the first 2 songs was paid for, in 2021. The songs Amia will be recording are I believe and It’s Been A Long time. “I Believe” is a soulful, Sophisti Pop love song, that echoes the universal experience of uncertainty in a romantic relationship, where one person is not yet convinced the other person really loves them. “It’s Been A Long Time”, is a song about long lost love, that has a chance to be rekindled, once again.

Amia Franz, has a unique vocal style, which Nashville vocal coach, Ron Browning recognizes and is helping her strengthen, and capture even more of what she can offer, with exercises in sessions with her. Amia recently discovered and is being treated for low levels of Magnesium, and other homeopathic supplementation to strengthen her vagus nerve that has effected her voice, with the help of a well known Dr. who works with opera and pop singers.

“I wish I had known this before now. I stuggled for some time and was told it was hereditary but it is not. So the freedom I had lost, is now acccessbile to me. I am so thrilled and eternally grateful for this mans amazing gift of healing!”
