After a decade of success in the business world, Black is taking a chance and following her music dreams with this new release. The rootsy collection of revealing and authentic tunes was recorded with producer, Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Bittertown). Available digitally, the album’s foundation is a traditional American roots sound but it’s not without a dash of rock and soul.
Black worked with the perfect cast of characters including singer/songwriter Mark Erelli on vocals, guitar and lap steel and Nashville’s favorite fiddle player, Stuart Duncan. 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.
My goal was to create music that successfully merged the acoustic and electric instrumentation that I love. I tend to be drawn to a classic sound and paid my respects to some of the great music of the past when I wrote this album.
Making One Time was an incredible experience for me. As happy as I am to get the music out there, I’m also sad that the creation process is over. My favorite part of making this record was witnessing these incredible musicians doing what they do best. I can’t wait to get back in the studio with them again.
This album is really a tribute to my southern roots and is dedicated to my Granddad who grew up dirt poor in Alabama – Amy Black.
