Though she was born and bred in Virginia to a native Virginian family, Amelia White cut her musical teeth as a young adult in Boston. “I could claim a southern musical pedigree if I wanted, my Grandpa played banjo on the porch every night, but in reality my roots came from sneaking down to the basement to listen to my older brother’s records while Mom thought I was doing homework,” laughs Amelia. “The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, and early Elton John were my favs, and I was completely obsessed. I loved the songs where I couldn’t figure out exactly what it meant for a while, and slowly a mystery was revealed; it blew my mind.“
And as the muse was awakened the story begins. She begged her brother to teach her guitar, proceeding to play it so much and so naturally that he sold her his 1968 Martin D-18 for 20 bucks of allowance money. It’s still Amelia’s main guitar to this day. The writing of songs followed and it was a steady stream that led her to her first money making gigs in the subways of Boston, and into studios and venues around the country and world. “I’ve pretty much been writing songs and playing them for people ever since I can remember, it comes naturally to me, and I imagine I will do it until the day I die.”
The press accolades still poured in:
“Ebullient choruses and complicated moods Literate verse and ravaged guitars and a level of composition and craftsmanship that brings to mind Lucinda Williams, Tom Petty, and Ryan Adams.” - Boston Globe
“Fiery topical ideas and emotional stories that name-check places such as Tupelo, as good country songs do. She sings ‘em with a hint of Virginia-bred twang that’s natural and charming” - The Tennessean
"It's no wonder that Amelia White is being touted as the next Lucinda Williams…but White has her own strong songs, and strong style.” - Washington Post
Perhaps her producer Marco Giovino explains Amelia’s music best: “How Van Gogh used canvas and paint to make his timeless masterpieces, Amelia uses lyric and melody to create songs that will touch and leave a lasting impression on every mood you've ever felt.”
