Nashville meets Austin in one show featuring one of the finest songwriters from each city. Amelia White stops by from Tennessee on her first tour of 2018, joining the home team – Texas veteran BettySoo, for a wonderful night of music.

AMELIA WHITE
One of the top songwriters in Nashville, Amelia White has an incredible new critically-acclaimed record, “Rhythm of the Rain,” a very nice follow-up to 2016’s release “Home Sweet Hotel,” which landed on the year-end Telegraph UK Top 10 list with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Miller, Applewood Road, John Moreland, Rod Picott and others. The record was produced by Marco Giovino of Robert Plant, Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller’s Band of Joy.
“Rhythm of the Rain” dropped in November in the UK, Continental Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and will release int he US this coming summer with several additional tracks. It has already received widespread four-star reviews and radio airplay across Europe.

“Remarkable…it’s hard not to hear the contrasting raw emotions in her distinctive vocal…with hints of Patti Smith in a dues-paid smoky bar patina. Sassy Americana at its best.” RnR Magazine UK, 4 stars

“Amelia White manages something special in the world of Americana …White is so much more than just a country singer and also so much more than just a songwriter. One of the best Americana albums I’ve heard recently.” Music-news.com UK, 4 stars

“This is the real deal, full of juicy tunes…the woman just oozes cool…it’s all killer no filler for sure…with an album as good as this, it’s truly an appointment not to be missed, this is a chance to see East Nashville’s finest at the top of her game – take it.” – Americana UK 9/10

“An authentic, intelligent piece of music that demands more than a few plays in order for it to live and breathe….an intriguing and intelligent listen that, like the best of albums, reveals much of itself with repeated listens.” – Maverick UK, 4 stars of 5
