ABOUT AMY BLACK
As a singer and songwriter, Amy Black is known for her authenticity and versatility. Her live performance, like her songwriting, spans from tender and vulnerable...to dynamic and powerful.
Amy's love of many classic forms of American music led her from Boston, where she started her career...to Nashville...to Muscle Shoals...and, most recently, to Memphis to record with members of the Hi rhythm section (Al Green's backing band).
While always drawn to singers of soul, blues and gospel, it wasn't until Amy began exploring her own southern soul roots for her third album, The Muscle Shoals Sessions, that she knew her next project had to be made in the place where blues and soul converge (and where she herself was conceived); where Al Green, Otis Redding and so many others turned grit and groove into some of the world's most beloved tunes. Black then hunted down several top musical architects (members Hi rhythm section - Al Green's backing band) to help her lay down the sound she wished to make -- the sound of Memphis.
Amy's song "Without You" can be heard in the Clint Eastwood film, The Mule.
