Amelia White

2 Jan

Raised In Virginia, and based in Nashville, Amelia White cut her musical teeth in the New England area, in the same scene that produced Mary Gauthier, Lori McKenna and Sarah Borges.

Her music has been described as hard rocking -folkin -alt-art country… But her songs and strong melodic style rise above categorization. Her albums ‘BLUE SOUVENIRS’ and ‘BLACK DOVES’  put her on the map with critical acclaims nationwide, steady non-com radio play, and appearances on E-Town and NPR’s All Songs Considered. A few TV Placements further exposed her talents.

“The songs come out of me hard and heavy -regularly. They walk the line between Neo Folk, raw well made rock, and rootsy pop. They have a lot of heart, and a good dose of intellect, and every few songs have a political and social consciousness…. Sometimes you have to listen twice to get ’em, though some can easily grab hold of you like an old Hank Williams. Some call them Indie Country, some Americana, some Folk Rock. To me they are the stories of my life and love and what I see in my friends eyes and strangers stories. They are miniature 3-3 and1/2 minute films. Writing to music comes to me like breathing and or eating, and its as pleasurable upon completion as great sex.”

With her latest release ‘MOTORCYCLE DREAM’ Amelia continues to prove that she’s a prolific writer with something to say and intensity to her cinematic lyrics that will stand the test of time.

‘MOTORCYCLE DREAM’ explores addiction, political and personal bullies, her dog’s near death, stranger’s heart-aches, and new love. Amelia is known for her unadulterated live performances and charisma. She is a true artist and will continue to write and play her songs regardless of lack of funding, current trends, or gas prices.

“Smart and catchy and tuneful in a way that recalls Steve Earle’s mesh of power chords, jangle and meaty rhythm section” NO DEPRESSION

“Nashville songwriter Amelia White sings with the grace and ease of a seasoned star” HARP

“Its no wonder that Amelia White is being touted as the next Lucinda Williams…but White has her own strong songs, and strong style” WASHINGTON POST

“White has emerged as one of the best local up-and comers since moving to Music City four years ago” NASHVILLE SCENE
