“Singer/ songwriter Amy Black seamlessly blends country, folk, rock and soul on her intoxicatingly enjoyable new album ‘One Time.'” – Jeffrey Sisk, The Daily News

“It takes guts, especially as a female artist, to release an album that opens with a murder ballad and closes with the title track from Johnny Cash’s last album. Amy Black’s ‘One Time’ is an album full of such gutsy decisions.” – Stormy Lewis, RoughStock

“One Time literally jumped out of my speakers the first time I heard it. Amy’s band is stellar and Lorne Entress did a stellar job producing as always, but it’s Amy’s voice that will jump out and grab you from the first song to the last.” – WUMB-FM Boston

“From Chris Smither to Lori McKenna, New England has been home to a long line of singer/songwriters. Amy Black continues in that tradition with One Time, her second studio album.” – ICON Magazine
