Anne-Margaret Redding (AMR) has a way of inspiring vulnerability in her listeners as they empathize with the emotional richness in each of her songs, while uncovering lessons learned. Her lust for life is ‘Contagious’ as her first album cautions, and when she’s on the stage, you can’t take your eyes off her.  With comparisons to Fiona Apple, Susan Tedeschi, Joss Stone, & Bonnie Raitt, her musical style attracts listeners from an ocean as wide as the spectrum of human emotions. From the rock-n-roll soulful groove of the Black Crowes to the vulnerable temptress ballads of love gone wrong, to inspiring, motivational anthems that’ll get you smiling and restore your faith in life and love...her music has it all.
AMR's classical piano background combined with her love of soul, rock, and blues, lays a unique, intricate foundation for lyrics of honest and poetic wisdom far beyond her years. A true artist, AMR shares the intimate twists and turns of her life’s journey while sharing the secrets she’s uncovered along the way. Having faced great aversion as a result of her personal convictions, her songs paint the metamorphic journey of a butterfly, with internal struggles in believing in herself and having faith that her dreams will take flight. Her listeners can’t help but empathize with the struggle and in the end, are inspired to move beyond their own fears and limitations.
Her concerts not only entertain, but shake you up inside to feel more deeply and infect you with desire to live life to its fullest. 

Working on her third album of music, Anne-Margaret continues to nurture her own artistry while residing with Anthony in Denver, Colorado. 

Live Your Passion: Workshop and Concert
Coffee Houses * Clubs * Freshman Orientation * Senior Week * Leadership Conferences * Women's Conferences
With bullying and violence ripping through American schools, the Live Your Passion Tour opens a world of possibilities
for students who are at a critical stage of their lives, making choices that will affect them for years to come.
 AMR tours internationally as a speaker, teacher, musician and spoken word artist with her Live Your Passion Tour.  
Raised in Littleton, Colorado, where the 1999 Columbine High School Tragedy occurred, she moved to NYC and then experienced 9/11 first hand. Forever changed, a deep desire stirred within her to bring healing to the world. These tragedies, along with her belief that happiness is a result of living a passion-filled life with purpose, led her to create the Live Your Passion Tour. While touring with her first album in 2003, she was invited to speak to her alma mater, share her story of living her passion. Once Anne-Margaret realized the difference this made with the students, she developed a music and spoken word infused workshop to connect young people with their passion and unique gift to the world.

M M A D  F E S T:   Musicians  Making  A  Difference

In 2003, the first MMAD FEST took place in downtown Manhattan at NYC's famed venue CBGB's Gallery as a way to celebrate local musicians who give back to their communities.  The annual, multi-city festival celebrates the power of music in changing lives and brings awareness to a wide array of musicians’ efforts: from voicing political concerns to supporting families of suicide victims. 

MMAD FEST is spearheaded by Anne-Margaret Redding (AMR), who is a NYC business owner, international speaker, musician, and spoken word artist.  After the Columbine HS Tragedy in ’99, AMR moved from Littleton, CO to NYC and then experienced 9/11 first-hand. Forever changed, a deep desire stirred within her to bring healing to the world. Since 2003, she has toured locally and internationally (Africa, India, Peru, Brazil) inspiring leadership in young adults with ‘Live Your Passion’ an empowering workshop infusing her original music and spoken word. As founder and producer of MMAD FEST™, Anne-Margaret, expanded the annual NYC festival in 2012 to Denver, Colorado, her home state. Her team's vision is to expand MMAD FEST to every major US city by 2030 to honor musicians who are using their influential voice for the good of their communities.
