Amelia's previous album OLD POSTCARD was met with a slew of praise from outlets like USA Today, American Songwriter, the Bluegrass Situation and more.  No Depression said, "if Lucinda ever fronted Fleetwood Mac, this might be the outcome," with the Bluegrass Situation adding that "I think we're entering a great new era of alternative country music.  If you need an example, look no further than Amelia White."

Hey to all you patrons of House Concerts Unlimited.  There is a reason I have hosted Amelia White and Sergio Webb, probably more than any other artist since I began doing House Concerts; she takes country music to the level of poetry, her melodies are haunting, and her guitar player, Sergio Webb, brings edgy to the mix.  It's a deadly one/two punch.
Amelia's voice is a little Lucinda Williams, a little Eliza Gilkyson and a whole lot of raise the hair on the back of the neck good.  Sergio Webb should be an honorary Oklahoman because his guitar skills are straight out of the tradition of the great Oklahoma players like Terry "Buffalo" Ware, in that there is an economy of just the right notes and a tone that matches the mood of each song.  Sergio is like one of those mood rings from the 70's that Amelia slips on her finger before each song and we all know the color of the song.

Goodbye Today - Amelia White

'Old Postcard' - Amelia White w/ Sergio Webb - From The Extended Play Sessions



The touring life is the theme that runs through a strong album from Nashville's Amelia White. I liked the grungy strength of Right Back to My Arms, while the compelling guitar work complements the strong lyrics of the title song (“I’m like a riddle riding in the wind/Singing my songs for strangers in every town I’m in”). White can do traditional country well, too, as she shows on In My Blood. It's an individual album of depth, produced by Marco Giovino and featuring multi-instrumentalist Sergio Webb. ★★★★☆
