Amy Nelson

Amy Nelson is a conduit of voices from the past, reverentially channeling the sounds of depression-era blues and mountain music. Steeped in the rich history of blues, hill-country and old time music, this remembering is what gives birth to Nelson’s sonic approach. Whether equipped with a power trio consisting of a lap steel guitarist and drummer's groove or solo on a stage, Amy's laments reach brawny heights that only honour her adroit lyricism and warble.
