She brings her songs to the Bull’s Head, Youlgreave, on Saturday, July 9, where she will be supported by English singer-songwriter Dan Webster.

Her new record, Home Sweet Hotel was produced by Marco Giovino (Band of Joy, Buddy Miller) with appearances from a wealth of players backing Amelia including multi-instrumentalist Sergio Webb (David Olney), Stuart Mathis (Lucinda Williams) on guitar, Ron Eoff (The Band) on bass, Paul Gordon (the B52’s) on keys and Julie Christensen (Leonard Cohen) adding some guest vocals.

Born in Virginia and raised in Boston, Amelia graduated from staging plays in her back yard to writing songs as soon as she acquired an acoustic guitar. The writing came quickly and hasn’t stopped since, She said: “I like to think of myself as a writer-song singer instead of a singer-songwriter.” she says.

Now based in East Nashville, she has honed her craft playing coffee houses, bars and house concerts.
