“Expertly crafted and passionately sung, Amy Black’s Memphis is worth visiting again and again.” – LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE

“The closer Amy Black gets to ‘home base,’ the better her music becomes. Memphis is for lovers of the old school, soul sound. It’s for a younger generation too, so they can hear for themselves, what all the hubbub has been about for 50+ years. Trust us when we say you want this one in your collection.” – AMERICAN BLUES SCENE

Black has thoroughly absorbed the Memphis sound, incorporating the chugging rhythm, spritely horns, and soulful beats. Meanwhile, her voice and method of interpretation echo the greats like Dusty Springfield, Mavis Staples, and Ann Peebles. And let’s not forget the huge importance of Memphis in the blues world as Black’s music bridges the worlds of blues and soul.” POP MATTERS
