Ep. 118: Amy Allen
There are two stories you can tell as a songwriter: yours or someone else’s. Today’s guest not only tells the stories of some of the biggest artists in the world as a songwriter, but she also shares her story as an artist. By 10-years-old, she began writing songs for herself and learned five instruments. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, she founded New York indie upstart band, Amy & The Engine. In 2018, she wrote the multi-platinum hit “Back To You” by Selena Gomez and opened up the floodgates to collaborate with A-list talent, including Halsey (“Without Me”), Harry Styles (“Adore You”), Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Sam Smith, and Marshmello. Forbes named her on the coveted “30 Under 30” list, while Variety dubbed her “Hitmaker of the Year.” Reclaiming her passion for performing in 2021, she introduces her sound as an artist on her full-length debut for Warner Records. All of her past experience has led her to this point, to creating a collection of personal and meaningful songs that make up her debut album. Her songs are lived-in tales, reminiscent of the American troubadours that have come before her - heroes like Tom Petty or Sheryl Crow, Carole King or John Prine or Bruce Springsteen. Heralded by her initial song releases and a debut album to follow, she tells her own story now. And The Writer Is… Amy Allen!

In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast
Delroy Lindo
Throughout a stage and screen career spanning decades, Delroy Lindo has intentionally set out to play the widest possible variety of characters. “I want to be able to encompass different human beings,” explains the actor, detailing the ebbs and flows of his career on this week's episode of “In the Envelope.” Delroy’s advice is balanced between optimistic encouragement and no-nonsense realism. It is inevitable that a life in the arts will bring dry spells, he says, but “don’t be dissuaded by the trauma of being told ‘no.’ Because at some point you will be told ‘yes,’ just as I was.” Born in London, raised in Canada and the U.S., and trained in San Francisco, New York City, and regional theaters, Delroy has pursued performing since his elementary school Nativity play. He’s appeared onscreen in “Soul of the Game,” “The Cider House Rules,” “Get Shorty,” and “The Chicago Code,” earned a Tony nomination for “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone,” and currently stars on CBS All Access’ legal drama “The Good Fight.” After working with Spike Lee in the 1990s in “Malcolm X,” “Crooklyn,” and “Clockers,” Delroy reunited with the Oscar-winning writer-director in last year’s Netflix hit “Da 5 Bloods,” earning him Critics’ Choice Award and SAG ensemble nominations. This episode also features an update from Backstage L.A. casting specialist Christina Kleppinger, as well as casting insider Christine McKenna-Tirella’s advice on survival jobs: https://bit.ly/3bxJ12S --- Backstage has been the #1 resource for actors and talent-seekers for 60 years.
