Amelia White’s newest album “Home Sweet hotel,” has just been chosen by THE TELEGRAPH UK as on of the top country albums of 2016. The album comes on the heels a string of well-regarded releases, TV placements (Justified) and cuts by notable artists. Music City Roots says the East Nashvillian: " Comes from that classic place between singer-songwriter, Jangle pop and country...her voice is REAL, and each song has some fascinating crystalline shape that invites close attention and touch." Tommy Womack sites Home Sweet Hotel as "seductive, and smokey, dark and woody...her voice has a quiet urgency" No Depression says "if you crossed Fleetwood Mac with Lucinda Williams this would be the result", and "Gives the audience her whole heart.” Amelia has shared stages with: Asleep At the Wheel, Brandy Clark, Tim O’ Brien and Justin Townes Earle to name a few. HOME SWEET HOTEL is has been at #5, and #6 on the Euro Americana charts for Jan-Feb. 

"Amelia White’s voice has the craggy, jagged grit and pain of Lucinda Williams at her best but it also has a sweetness that Ms Williams doesn’t possess. Allied to White’s gift for melody, some mighty fine playing from her musicians and songs that can go toe to toe with anyone and you have an album that, even this early, is going to be one of the best of the year"
Maverick 2016

"I was smitten with Amelia White’s previous album Old Postcards; and three bars into the sultry opening song on her latest disc; Dangerous Angel, I felt that same tingle in my tummy and my knees go wobbly again. There’s something darkly sexy about the way Amelia delivers the words in this ‘world weary’ love song that tugged at my heartstrings in a way very little else has managed in recent months."
Alan Harrison, Rocking Magpie 2016

“raw authentic lyrics and gorgeously lived in pipes”
