Amy Black’s fourth solo release, “Memphis” was recorded in Memphis with grammy-nominated producer and leader of the band The Bo-Keys, Scott Bomar, at the helm. The powerful 10-song album features three members of the Hi Rhythm section who played on all Al Green classics — The Rev. Charles Hodges on the Hammond B and piano, his brother Leroy “Flick” Hodges on bass, and Howard Grimes on drums, along with former Stax guitarist Bobby Manuel – all architects of the Memphis sound.
Devising and creating the “Memphis” album was an obvious next step for Black, on the heels of her third release, “The Muscle Shoals Sessions.” This album was recorded in 2015 in her family’s homeland of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, at the historic FAME Studios, and featured legendary keyboardist and “Swamper” Spooner Oldham.
The album will be released on Friday, June 2, 2017 and will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Napster and amyblack.com
The album can also be pre-ordered. Pre-orders will receive the album in advance of the official release date.
