Show me to the river, somewhere to wash away this feeling,
these days of disbelieving.
~ Show Me to the River, Amie Penwell
Marin County singer-songwriter Amie Penwell just released her debut full-length album King in a Temple this past November. The first thing that hits you on hearing the album is the voice. A voice for Gospel, or like the voice of an angel lowered an octave as it says on her website. It's an apt description. Amie's voice not just soulful, you really do feel like it's a healing balm to sooth away the pain of life she sings about in her songs, and turn it into something beautiful.
