"I'm listening to your CD right now. It's hot, Amy. Kinda jazzy, with that cool, sexy house sensibility, and a really positive vibe; feel good, with cutting-edge hipness. And your voice sounds so pretty and ethereal. It invokes images of celtic goddesses in misty groves, sleek sirens, singing by waterfalls, with hot gay backup dancers on the rocks above ... so good. I'm especially into your voices natural raspyness. So many women sound oh-so-affected, trying to hit that sound that comes naturally to you. It's in my rotation, for sure!"
