PRESS and VENUES

 

Examiner.com:
“Her voice is an angelic masterpiece”
 

PATRICK O'HEFFERNAN, MUSIC FRIDAY LIVE:

"She completely charmed the audience – and me – with her glowing voice and welcoming manner.  She was the girl next door who happened to sing brilliantly, play the guitar and front a kick-ass country rock band."

NASHVILLE LIFESTYLES MUSIC ISSUE:
“One to watch.”

NASHVILLE SCENE NAMES AMY BEST NEW SINGER/SONGWRITER:
Most newcomers bearing acoustic guitars take aim at Music Row formulas or get lost trying to find a distinctive voice. Loftus is that rare find who sounds fully developed on first blush.  —MICHAEL McCALL

 

RALEIGH INDEPENDENT:
“She’s one of the leading female lights to emerge from Nashville in awhile.”
-Grayson Currin

Music Row Magazine:
“In a word, promising.” -Robert Oehrmann

Western Beat Entertainment:
“Amy Loftus has got the stardust, with the potential to be one of her generation’s great artists”

Greenwich Village Press:
“It’s a rare thing in Los Angeles for a singer-songwriter to be on stage and have a bar full of people shut up and listen. But with a sound and lyrics on caliber with Aimee Mann or Lucinda and a voice as hauntingly soul- stirring as Alison Krauss, coupled with a visible truth and passion for every word she sings, it’s hard not to give Amy your complete attention. Her voice is nothing short of spiritual”

Los Angeles Times:
“Amy Loftus impresses”

John McEuen, Nitty Gritty Dirt band:
“If anyone is looking for a new female singer to follow and watch develop, one who already is good enough to be known nationally and is working towards it quite successfully, catch Amy when you can, as you will find someone you will want to tell others about. Original songs, great attitude, voice and stage presence… You will be glad you heard her, as I was.
