Qveen Herby, also known as Amy Heidemann, is an American singer, songwriter, and rapper. She is part of the pop duo Karmin, alongside her husband Nick Noonan.

She is the daughter of Teri and Mark Heidemann.

Amy’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her fourth great-grandfather, Friedrich Heidemann.

Amy’s paternal grandfather was Leonard William Henry Heidemann (the son of Heinrich Friedrich Wilhelm Otto “Fred” Heidemann and Sophia Dorothea Marie Philipine Caroline Bartels). Leonard was born in Tobias, Nebraska. Friedrich was the son of German emigrants, Friedrich August “Fred” Heidemann and Rebecca Dorothea “Dora/Dorethe” Buhmann, both of Rinteln, Lower Saxony. Sophia was the daughter of German emigrants, Friedrich Christian “Fred” Bartels, of Meerbeck, Lower Saxony, and Anna Sophie Dorothea Bartels, of Hülshagen, Lauenhagen, Lower Saxony, who were first cousins.

Amy’s paternal grandmother was Violet Faye Chirnside (the daughter of Thomas Chirnside and Nancy Ann “Annie” Terp). Violet was born in Jansen, Nebraska. Thomas was the son of an English emigrant, John Chirnside, of Ford, Northumberland, and of a Northern Irish emigrant, Ellen Lowry, of Ballynahinch, County Down. Annie was the daughter of a Danish emigrant, Peder (later Peter) Sørensen Terp, of Randbøl, Vejle, and of Sarah Elizabeth Gilmore, who was of English, Northern Irish, as well as distant German, descent.
