If you think you recognize both members of the donnies the amys, well, you just might. The two are regular fixtures in countless bands around Echo Park. The last project of drummer Amy Wood put her on stage as one of two female drummers in Big Black Delta but she is also known for making some noise in bands like White Sea, All Wrong and the Plans Change, the Broken Remotes, Lonely Trees and so, so many more. One of these many projects is The Outdoors, fronted by Donnie Stemp with whom she formed the donnies the amys while working on their Frisbee Golf game in Elysian Park. In Late, late 2011 (we’re talking December 31st!) the duo released their debut album and earlier this year had their song “Boxer + Clover”, which has received much praise, featured on Grey’s Anatomy! They also just finished up taping a Daytrotter session that will be coming out any day now!
“‘Boxer and Clover’ by The Donnies the Amys…you may have heard it since it’s played in the background on Gray’s [Anatomy], but you probably didn’t realize how adorably dorky it is…Another great song off this California band’s album is ‘I Told A Lie’” - On Meandering
"[Amy Wood’s] latest project with her bandmate from the Outdoors, Donnie Stemp, looks like a boatload of fun. Stemp and Wood are going by the capitalization-challenged, conjunction-less moniker the donnies the amys." - BuzzBands.LA
