— Inessa Anderson, Portland Radio Project

She Literally stopped folks in their tracks and the room crackled because she’s just that damn good.

More of the story

Amber Sweeney’s recent release, “Beautiful”, is for those who struggle with the idea they are not young enough, talented enough, or pretty enough to follow their dreams. It is her first release since the 2018 chart topping hit, “Sweet Light", where Sweeney teamed up with Australian producer, Jazzy D. Sweet Light found success all over the world, reaching #1 on the U.K. Soul charts. Paul Miller of BBC Radio says of "Sweet Light has the potential to be huge, and to be one of those classic ballads we’ll be playing in years to come.” 2020 will brings more inspiring Acoustic Soul tune, and more touring across the US. “I have a lot to say about where to find our value and our worth, in a world that is constantly pointing out where we fall short.” ~ Amber Sweeney
