Product Description

At just 19, Glaswegian singer-songwriter Amy possesses a talent way beyond her years. Since signing to Vertigo, Amy has had a phenomenal few months. She's supported a diverse mix of artists including Travis (her childhood idols!) and fellow Scott Paolo Nutini. She's performed at Glastonbury, Hyde Park Calling, T In The Park and V Festival. She also sold out the renowned Scottish venue King Tuts. She's a favorite of Elton John, too! 10 tracks including the singles 'Mr. Rock & Roll' and 'Poison Prince'. Universal.

Amy MacDonald is that proverbial old head on young shoulders, a Scottish singer-songwriter who, despite her tender 19 years, writes songs with the grace, wisdom, and proficiency of one with a score more on the clock. As influenced by the Libertines as by any venerable old folk hand, the eleven songs on This Is the Life combine a traditional, acoustic folk-rock sound with a youthful spirit and self-assured lyrics that veer between the observational and the confessional. "Poison Prince" is a jagged guitar strut dedicated to some Doherty-like bad boy, a song every bit as pathos-laden as the Libertines at their doomed, romantic best with a closing treatise to find "An upbeat song/So we can dance the night away," while "Mr. Rock & Roll" begins as a wryly withering jibe at some perennial party animals, but by the chorus has softened into a subtle, touching tale of human coupling. MacDonald's age doesn't seem to have been an impediment--"Youth of Today," reportedly written when she was 15, is one of the better tracks here, while "Footballer's Wife" is a clear-headed attack on vapid Barbie-doll celebrity that suggests this girl is very much on the right track. "Rolling Stone, here I come, watch out everyone/I'm singing my song," she sings on "Let's Start a Band." Let that be a warning to you. --Louis Pattison
