Austin, Texas “The Live Music Capital of the World” is full of talented musicians/singers/songwriters. It is a tough place to stand out. Many will never make it, but it is also the place where the best will rise to the top.
I don’t often get to review a new CD prior to its official release, but Royal Street by my friend Amanda Pearcy was one I had been anxiously waiting to hear. I knew Amanda had been working diligently on this CD and I was not disappointed. Amanda’s vocals and songwriting skills are nothing short of spectacular. Produced by Tim Lorsch with some recording handiwork by Bradley Hartman and George Bradfute, the band and background vocals all come together in a masterful blend. Songs like Barking Dogs and Bring You Home reach into your heart and soul. They lift you along as the story unfolds through the songs. Amanda sings of moments in life: heartfelt lyrics that flow smoothly and invite you to come along…down Royal Street.
The official release will be February 19 with a performance at Strange Brew. To hear some of Royal Street visit www.amandapearcy.com
