AMY ALLEN RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘JOSIE RAE’

AMY ALLEN RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘JOSIE RAE’

Country-Pop-Americana Artist Celebrates Top-15 Country Hit


           NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 2014) – Country-pop-Americana artist Amy Allen is releasing the second single from her highly successful new album, “Someday Is Today”.

            “Josie Rae“, a mid-tempo country/pop song about
motherhood, is being promoted to radio stations across the nation by
Nashville-based Bill Wence Promotions. The first single (the album’s
title track) recently hit number 15 on the STS Main Country Chart.
Selections from the “Someday Is Today” CD continue to air on country and
Americana radio stations around the world.

            Allen’s surprising success follows a long break from the
music industry. In the late 1990s, she landed a recording contract and
opened for acts such as John Conlee, Patty Loveless, and Brooks &
Dunn — even performing at The White House and the Ryman Auditorium.
Health-related issues and the decision to become a mother prompted her
to leave Nashville for her hometown of El Dorado, Ark. Her family
recently encouraged her to write, sing and record again. She returned to
Music City to record the album in 2012 and 2013.

            “Response to ‘Josie Rae’ and other songs from the CD has
been wonderful,” said Allen, who will perform a concert in Nashville in
early February. “My new single expresses a mother’s love for a daughter.
The song prompts tearful reactions from mothers of all ages everywhere I
perform. It’s a reflection of what I’ve experienced raising my
children.”

            The “Someday Is Today” CD features 11 original songs
inspired by real-life experiences. The artist describes her sound as a
versatile mix of blues-accented country, pop and Americana with hints of
Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Elton John, and Patsy Cline. The online
retailer iTunes named the album “New and Noteworthy” shortly after it
was released.

            In the song “Josie Rae”, the singer-songwriter writes: “You
make my world such a wonderful place to stay… Thanks for making
everyday for me Mother’s Day.” Allen penned the song for her daughter,
drawing inspiration from the unforgettable, life-changing experiences
mothers have while raising children.

            According to a reviewer for Skope Magazine, the
artist has an “irresistible, bubbly personality backed by powerful
vocals that evoke real emotion. She sings loud and proud in the song
“Josie Rae” about her daughter. When she is describing her [daughter’s]
smile, you can’t help but grin ear-to-ear yourself.”

            Produced and recorded in Nashville by Denny Martin
Productions, “Someday Is Today” offers heartfelt ballads, mid-tempo
crowd pleasers, and rock-accented dance numbers. Allen is joined by an
all-star cast of Nashville session musicians, including guitarist Scott Neubert, background vocalists Jaimee Paul and Vickie Carrico, electric guitarist Jason Roller, and keyboardist Steve Peffer. The album, which retails for $15 (USD) and $9.99 (USD) for digital sales at iTunes, is distributed by Wormwood Records.

            “I produce a lot of artists in my studio, and Amy is truly
an original,” said Denny Martin, who co-wrote her bluesy ballad, “Cryin’
Time”. “Her natural-given voice is stunning in its clarity and
expressiveness. Her sense of humor and joyful personality come through
in her writing and her singing. I consider myself extremely fortunate to
know her, to write with her, and to produce her. The world is about to
hear what I’ve been hearing for more than two years.”

            Allen recently performed to full houses at the South
Arkansas Arts Center in El Dorado, Ark., and The Row in Nashville.
Upcoming performances include the Center for Spiritual Living Nashville
(Feb. 2 and Feb. 7) and the Songwriters Showcase in Fredericksburg, Va.,
on Sept. 26. The artist is available to perform at concert venues, arts
centers, nightclubs, art galleries, hotels, casinos, festivals,
assisted living centers, and churches.

            The “Someday Is Today” CD is available through major online
retailers such as Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby. The singles “Someday Is
Today”, “Josie Rae”, and “Cryin’ Time” are available for download at
iTunes. A portion of the proceeds from album and concert ticket sales
will benefit local non-profit charities that provide the support and
resources people need to discover their dreams. “Josie Rae” and other
selections from the album can be heard at http://www.TheAmyAllen.com and purchased from iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/someday-is-today/id710800873?ign-mpt=uo%3D4 .

            “Every note I sing or every note or chord I strum is given
with all of the love I have for the song I am performing,” the former
Warner Music Nashville studio singer said. “My voice is the voice of
someone who has been down many different roads, including motherhood.”

            Allen is represented in the United States by Bill Wence Promotions, Whiting Publicity and Promotions, and Music City Artist Management, and in Europe by Hemifran.
