Amy Black Brings MEMPHIS MUSIC REVUE to NYCAmy Black Brings MEMPHIS MUSIC REVUE to NYC
by BWW News Desk - Jul 11, 2017

 Amy Black has always been drawn to soul singers.

So she traveled from her Nashville home to Soulsville U.S.A. and joined forces with several top musical architects to lay down the sound she was meant to make - the sound of Memphis. (more...)

It is poignant and funny, and relatable-even to those who have not gone under the knife. The best comedy comes from a place of vulnerability, and Herrerra does this beautifully with this autobiographical story. (more...)
