Multi-awarded South Australian singer songwriter Amber Joy Poulton found inspiration in the ‘western’ themes of old time Country music when writing for her fifth album, How It Used To Be, which was recently recorded in Nashville.
Amber is possessed by traditional classics, how country music ‘used to be’ & is currently channelling Loretta in her successful touring production Coal Miner’s Daughter.
While How It Used To Be is Amber’s moodiest album yet with little redemption for those who have wronged in the killer lyrics, the songs breathe Patsy, Dolly & Tammy & have all the charm of a by-gone era, to which she feels aligned.
This revealing album is her third original offering that adds to her versatility alongside her two tribute albums. She has toured extensively throughout Australia & overseas with Nashville, Norfolk Island & the high seas aboard Cruisin Country for three extraordinary cruises as well as her yearly trek to Tamworth & country music festivals like Boyup Brook, Gympie Muster, Mildura, Horsham, Riverland & more but it's her touring the country with theatre show Coal Miner's Daughter that has garnered fans from every performance with her astounding ability to put down the songwriting cap & take on the role of Loretta Lynn in theatres all over Australia.
