Biography
Singer/songwriter Amy Black's sophomore album "One Time" is a rootsy Americana music mix, with a dash of rock and soul. Recorded with producer, Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Bittertown) the album features the perfect cast of top-notch musicians, including singer/songwriter Mark Erelli on vocals, guitar and lap steel and Nashville's favorite fiddle player, Stuart Duncan.

With Entress' guidance, Amy and the players have created a rich and compelling album. The music spotlights traditional roots instruments like Dobro, fiddle, mandolin, pedal steel and upright bass as well as the smooth and classic sounds of the electric guitar.

In her debut album “Amy Black and The Red Clay Rascals”, the singer paid tribute to her favorite songwriters. With “One Time”, Amy's powerful voice and presence are matched by the commanding range of her own song writing as seen in the nine originals on the album. The characters in “Molly” and “Whiskey And Wine” ache with bittersweet yearning in a world of pleasure and pain. “All My Love” simmers with seduction, while “Meet Me On The Dance Floor” is a flirty delight. “Stay”, featuring harmony vocals by Amy’s little sister Corrie Jones, swings with grown-up romance and “Run Johnny” crackles with bluesy menace.

In the album’s potent title track, One Time, the plaintive lyric “Time for you to make a break/And show what you’re good for” could describe Black’s bold step with this new release. “I decided a few years back that it was now or never,” says Black. “I love music way too much to sit on the side lines. You only get one chance at this life, and I’m taking mine.”
