Amelia Salsbury is an accomplished singer, songwriter, pianist, and guitar player, and she is only 13 years old. Salsbury, a resident of Castle Pines Village, has been singing and studying music since the age of six, and it has quickly become her passion.
Salsbury suffered from chronic ear infections as a young child, and she had trouble hearing for many years. After receiving ear tubes, her world opened up, and she has been hearing and performing music ever since.
Salsbury is well-known among her neighbors and friends and is frequently asked to perform at various events. Salsbury sang at an event for Judi’s House, a charity that provides support for children and families who have lost loved ones, and she has sung numerous times at Key Ceremonies for the Homes for Our Troops organization. Salsbury sang in the Colorado Children’s Chorale for two years, and her new goal is to audition for the X-Factor, which is coming to Denver in May.
“Singing makes me feel good. I like showing people what I can do,” remarked Salsbury. “I want to be the best singer I can be, and would love to make this my career.” Salsbury enjoys singing a wide variety of music including pop, country, and blues.
In addition to singing, Salsbury is a remarkable songwriter. Several of her songs are copyrighted, and she spends most of her free time writing music. A studio in Dallas, Texas is currently professionally producing one of her original songs, and she hopes to have more produced in the future.
