Amelia White’s Home Sweet Hotel Tackles Tensions Of Life On The Move, The Bluegrass Situation Has First Single

Listen To Brooding, Sardonic “Dogs Bark” Here, Album Out February 5, 2016

“Coming From That Classic Place Between Singer/Songwriter, Jangle Pop And Country That Comes For The Beating Heart Of The Americana Format.” -Music City Roots

November 10, 2015 – Amelia White knows all too well the struggle of a touring musician's life - the endless parade of shows in new cities can overshadow any attempts to have a life at home with somebody you love. That tension is at the heart of her new album Home Sweet Hotel, out February 5, 2016 on White-Wolf, produced by Marco Giovino (Band of Joy, Buddy Miller). The Bluegrass Situation premieres the first single “Dogs Bark,” a brooding, sardonic punch at people who talk too much about other people.

“I started writing ‘Home Sweet Hotel’ in a Days Inn in Allentown, PA.” White says, “I was thinking about how many people who don't do music are intrigued with the touring lifestyle of a musician. The road holds temptation and adventure and heartache all in one suitcase.  It can be glamorous one day and down-right humiliating the next.”

Home Sweet Hotel features appearances from a wealth of stellar players backing White, including multi-instrumentalist Sergio Webb (David Olney), Stuart Mathis (Lucinda Williams) on guitar, Ron Eoff (The Band) on bass, Paul Gordon (the B52’s) on keys and Julie Christensen (Leonard Cohen) adding some guest vocals.

Home Sweet Hotel comes on the heels of a string of well-regarded releases and song placements in television shows like Justified and Summerland. White’s previous album Old Postcard was met with a slew of praise from outlets like USA Today, American Songwriter, the Bluegrass Situation and more. No Depression said “if Lucinda ever fronted Fleetwood Mac, this might be the outcome.”
