Amy Black doesn’t like to dwell on what might be the most compelling part of her story. Five years ago, she was sitting at her kitchen table when an epiphany took hold.
“I don’t remember why, but I started thinking, ‘Amy, you’re not getting any younger. You’ve never done anything with your voice, but you should try,’ ” she says. “At the time, I didn’t even know what that meant.”
It meant that at age 35, Black would finally pursue a career in music — first as an interpreter of others’ songs and then as a writer of her own. She has had a slow but steady rise in Boston’s roots music scene that eventually has gotten her noticed as far away as Nashville.

Amy is thrilled to be the supporting act for grammy-winning singer/songwriter Rodney Crowell at two of his upcoming shows in the Northeast. If you haven’t seen Rodney live, don’t miss the chance. He’s a masterful storyteller and hit generator. He charted five consecutive No. 1 hits with Diamonds and Dirt and has become one of the most critically acclaimed artists in country music. Crowell’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Norah Jones. He was recently inducted into the Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame between Willie Nelson and Guy Clark.
