You might not of heard of the name Amy Allen but you’ve listened to the music that she has helped create for many years with this wonderfully gifted songwriter helping to write tracks like Adore You by Harry Styles, Without Me by Halsey and Back To You by Selena Gomez to name but a few. However today is the day that Allen steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight with the release of her debut single Queen of Silver Linings that not only shows off her talent as a female powerhouse but makes a statement that makes you want to remember her name.
There’s a raw candid emotion to this piece that comes from her evocative vocal performance combined with her poetically poignant lyrical storytelling that makes you feel as if you’re watching the events unfold before your very eyes. The sparse production with a solemn acoustic guitar melody leading the pieces adds a intimacy to the piece that is reminiscent of classic country music (Not Ready To Make Nice by The Dixie Chicks in particularly) as well as an intimate setting that makes each word hit you such emotional weight that you’re left reeling.
This isn’t just a debut, it’s the start of something much bigger and honestly Amy Allen is one of those rare talents that I can see thriving for many years to come. An icon in the making with a timeless sound.
