Track premiere: Amelia White “Rhythm of the Rain”

This is a nice way to start a wet Monday morning. Amelia White’s new album “Rhythm of the Rain” which we recently described as “East Nashville’s finest at the top of her game” is out in the UK on October 27th and she’s shared with us the title track from that record, telling AUK: “This song came to me in my month-long tour of the UK in July of 2016. I was based in a small attic room of a promoter and friend. By day I listened to the news from the U.S. via the BBC – the great divide in our country, the racial tensions, and the salacious ramp up to the election were all quite disturbing – playing music always turned the pain into something good, and crawling up into that room late at night and falling asleep to the peaceful sound of the rain on the skylight was a tonic to me.” Had Amelia known the way the rest of the year was going to work out she might have needed a gin with that tonic.

Real quality. Lucinda Williams would be proud if she had recorded this! And rightly so…
