American songwriter Amelia White recently released album Rhythm Of The Rain; plus has now released new track Free Advice (video below); Amelia explains:

“I could write a short story for everyone who’s come up after a show and told me what I could Improve upon. It usually boils down to “smile more and show some damn cleavage” I guess in some ways “Free Advice” is my own “Me Too” moment. Cheers to all gals who “just wanna rock”- this one’s for YOU.

Rhythm Of The Rain was written while Amelia was touring the UK and viewing the bitterly divisive election season back home via the BBC; and this summer she has returned to the UK to perform these songs live including with her last few shows coming up in –

Thursday 19th July – Marshall Rooms, Stroud
Friday 21st July – Truck Festival, Oxfordshire
Tuesday 24th July – The Greystones, Sheffield
Wednesday 25th July – The Kitchen Garden Cafe, Birmingham
Saturday 28th July – Halfway to Seventy-Five Festival, Oxford

Rhythm Of The Rain, co-written with Ben Glover, was initially released as a nine song album late in 2017 in the UK as an offering to that country for loving her songs and providing a kind of shelter from the tumult back home. That ocean of separation and her loneliness gave her the necessary distance to paint her picture of the shake-up. White uses observations images and melody to tell her stories. Music City Roots host and journalist Craig Havighurst wrote “her songs each have some fascinating crystalline shape that invites close attention and touch.”

What separates Amelia White from most other songwriters in the Americana genre is her detail. Like a short story writer steeped in the gothic humidity of the backroads, White illuminates the ordinary, the magic in the process of creating. She is a rock and roll soothsayer, an East Nashville Cassandra with an Americana gospel shout thicker that the paper-thin illusion of fame and money.
