Country pop songstress Amy Lawton is back with yet another formidable original and this being Hello. I’ve had this tempting treat on constant repeat and it’s another slice of sheer bliss aided by enchanting lyrics.
Also on the day of release the hypnotic Hello peaked at Number 2 on the iTunes singer/ songwriter chart which is an incredible feat.
Firstly Amy is a marvellous Mancunian who has the potential to make waves within the country genre. Just listening to these outstanding songs leaves me envisioning the likes of Catherine McGrath and an early Taylor Swift. Now Lawton made her debut in 2017 with the exceptionally beautiful Undone, this was a breezy tune aided by addictive/ upbeat lyrics. The following year saw the unveiling of the quirky Hurts Like Paradise and the heart wrenching Don’t Bring Louise. 2019 Amy dropped a trio of tracks, these being New Light, Drag Me Under and My Love’s Not For Christmas. Listening to these gems never fail to make me smile.
That aside, Lawton is someone I hold in my highest regards and she most definitely has an exciting future ahead of her. One of Amy’s 2020 New Year’s Resolutions was to release more tunes, so hopefully Hello is the very start of a monthly series. Plus Lawton makes her headline debut at Camden Assembly on 20th April and support is provided by the lovely Bailey Tomkinson.
Now I have nothing but praise for Hello, it’s yet another pristine piece of country pop which hooked me on the very first listen. Amy’s charming vocals were refreshing whilst those whimsical lyrics centred on missing a certain somebody on a cold night and the subsequent reunion “Nothing feels the same without you/ And I can’t help wish that you were here”. To sum things up Hello was a heart warming effort and it leaves me anticipating hearing more originals this year.
Hello is available from iTunes
