Editorial Reviews

In a pop world deluged by tragic tales of teen stars gone horribly wrong, New Orleans' Amanda Shaw can seem an oasis of genuine, countrified charm. Just 16-years-old when she cut this bracing, often effervescent Rounder Records debut with the Cute Guys, (her band of country/bluegrass vets whose youngest member is three decades her senior,) Shaw's strong vocal and violin performances underscore a talent as unique as her biography. A classical violin prodigy who-- at 8-years-old--became the Baton Rouge Symphony's youngest soloist, Shaw switched to playing a diverse gumbo of Cajun-rooted music before she'd reached her teens. It's that refusal to be genre-typecast that powers much the album, as Shaw follows her muse from the effervescent, clear-eyed title track lament, into deceptively effortless cocktails of funk, country, rock, and r&b. Most of Pretty Runs Out is seasoned with a savory New Orleans sass, as the playful violin-horn-guitar interplay of "Brick Wall" attests with funky verve. The swampy "Chermolito" wades into bluesy Bonnie Raitt territory, while she molds the haunting "Garden of Eden" and her cover of the Diane Warren-by-way-of-Cyndi Lauper ballad "I Don't Want to Be Your Lover" forcefully into her own image. The joyous "French Jig" and a medley of reels display her nimble fiddle chops, even if "Woulda Coulda Shoulda" and the closing "Easy On Your Way Out" let her Gwen Stefani jones get the best of her. Yet Shaw's vibrant eclecticism rarely seems forced. Her musical gifts are miles beyond the manufactured teen stars who hog the headlines. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars latest offering from a great talent June 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Amanda Shaw is a huge talent waiting to be discovered by the rest of the country. Her latest cd is an excellent example of of her vastly varied talents. She has a superb voice, which she can alter to match the material, something not found that often these days. Additionally, she has the unique ability to match her amazing fiddle playing talent with songs that truly bridge the gap between bonofide cajun and modern pop. And last, but not least, is her wonderful song writing talent, which has shown that she has her feet firmly planted on the ground and a maturity way beyound her years. And if that is not enough, she has a superb band that can support and really bring to life any musical genre Miss Shaw should choose to perform. If she is not invited to the the Grand 'Ol Opry or her music played on national country stations soon, it won't be from lack of talent, but an industry afraid to broaden its horizons.
I first saw her on the tv special 'Dancing Down to New Orleans', when she was much younger and performed 'Little Black Dog', which though a simple tune has always stuck in my head.
Recently after making plans to fly back to New Orleans for the '08 Jazzfest, I discovered that she would be closing the 'Fais Do Do' stage, the last Sunday of the event. I eventually decided to pass up the Neville Brothers and Al Green in favor of her performance. I was very anxious to see how she had matured as a performer. Wow! I enjoy blue grass, cajun, and other southern music, but Miss Shaw is something else. She puts on an incredible show and bridges all generational gaps and a variety of musical genres. It was my first time at the Jazzfest and although there were many great groups performing there, Miss Shaw topped the event for me and definitely made the trip and expense more than worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing young talent February 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Fiddle wizard Amanda Shaw has been in at least four movies, and has played to huge crowds at the New Orleans Jazzfest every year since she was seven or eight years old. Now she's seventeen, and has put out a disk that adults can enjoy.

She is a true Anti-Britney. She gave up Disney, and a chance at being Hannah Montana (the role might have been written about Amanda's life) to focus on real music, not corporate pablum, and the ability to determine her own musical course. Her band members are all about three times her age -- but Amanda plays and sings with the authority to lead the band, both on-stage and in the studio. She clearly intends on having a lifelong career as well, and has passed on opportunities for fleeting stardom in order to pursue such a course.

New Orleans music has alot of hidden gems -- and Amanda Shaw is clearly one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Major Label Debut is a Winner! March 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Amanda Shaw for 4 years, I believe, since I first saw her at the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans. Although she was just 13 at the time, she led her band with a confidence that was stunning. Now, with her major label debut on Rounder, the world can get a sense of her abilities.

This CD makes a point of giving a broad introduction to Amanda. There are traditional Cajun fiddle songs, sultry ballads, rockers, etc. On each cut, she shines. Do yourself a favor and pick up this CD -- you'll be sharing it with all your friends within days! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic and Refreshing Music March 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Amanda Shaw's new album "Pretty Runs Out" is a wonderful collection of music. It's difficult to classify this music into a genre because Shaw has created a truly unique musical experience here. Is this country, blues, pop, rock, bluegrass, ...? It's none of them and all of them at the same time.

Don't trust this review though, go listen to some of the samples yourself.

And if you love the fiddle, you are in for a remarkable listening experience!

4.0 out of 5 stars preview of excellent cajun/fiddle/rock to come... December 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Year 2008's "Pretty Runs Out" CD is the predecessor of Amanda Shaw's excellent 2010 CD "Good Southern Girl". This is a 'must have' for Amanda fans. On this one the good southern girl was giving us a taste of the great stuff that was on the way...
