    Betty Soo and Amelia White BettySooBettySoos voice is the perfect combination of strength, vulnerability and clarity.It is just perfect. Americana-UKReal music. Terrific! Bob Harris, BBC2In the over-crowded, somewhat stale field of Americana, BettySoo is the very real deal Houston PressA lot happens in five years.Marriages start, marriages crumble, daughters run away, innocence is lost, husbands punch their wives in the face, and those lost causes weve resigned to the wind get sober and start over. Children are born but some dont make it past five.During the five years since her last album of original material, BettySoo zigzagged her way across the North American and European continents more than a few times. Mostly, she toured. Every other minute, she was flying to visit best friends in rehab, driving for days with friends whose family lives were crumbling, visiting mental hospitals, going to houses and cleaning kitchens and bathrooms when friends had no will left to do it themselves.(click to read full bio)Singer-songwriter Amelia White cut her teeth on Bostons folk music scene before moving to Nashville over a decade ago. White has said her new album, Old Postcard, is about home and family as inspiration. Shes got a rich and husky voice and is an evocative story teller in the tradition of Lucinda Williams and John Prine. Download Old Postcard below; its as good as the singer-songwriter side of alt-country can get.Amelia White's Ghetto video, premiering exclusively at USA TODAY, accompanies a track off her latest album Old Postcard, a "theme album about home and family as inspiration," White says.Old Postcard features "haunting" melodies, something White, often compared to Lucinda Williams, embraces. "There's definitely some ghosts floating around in this album," she says.Ghetto was filmed on White's back deck and features members of what she calls the gritty, colorful community of East Nashville musicians. "When I first moved to Nashville 13 years ago, someone said 'Welcome to the songwriters' ghetto,' " she says. "Living here makes you feel kind of supported in that. (There's) a sense of community and even a healthy competition."This community wasn't always familiar to White, whose parents disapproved of her music career as well as her sexuality. Although difficult, it ultimately helped shape her as a writer. "I was probably born a writer, but just constantly feeling like you're not right kind of makes you go into your own world where you just create," she says."Walk the road of your heroes," a line in Ghetto, is the idea behind the video. "All those people sitting around jamming ... are putting everything on the line to do that," she says.
