““Simply put, Amanda Broadway is a Nashville-based singer and a songwriter with an affinity for blues and soul music. Although to stop there would be a travesty. Broadway’s voice is a mighty, dazzling blast of light guiding you through the murky waters of today’s blues music and back in time to the unadulterated glory of the 1960s and ’70s. Her voice harkens back to the likeness of Etta James while reveling in the nuances of today, effortlessly soaring above her well-crafted, deeply groove-focused blues and soul music.””
“It's smart, strong, well-crafted soul/country/city/blues without artifice. Broadway has a muscular yet open sound (the gal can straight howl!) that is influenced by the blues-infected ladies and soul men that came before but she manages to stomp firmly between good hard blues and country with none of the cloying, soulless, overwrought, painfully melismatic American Idol-esque faux-passion one might expect from a modern Nashvillian, nor does she sound like any of the new crop of well-dressed soul retroteers.”
“Musically and lyrically there’s no doubt as to which genre of music “Me Without You” falls into because it’s all about the blues. On the other hand, like several other young, female, contemporary blues artists, Amanda’s vocal style would compliment songs of many genres. As she belts out the opening and title track – “Me Without You” – graceful, soulful, powerful, and range defying are just several descriptions that come to mind concerning Amanda’s vocal technique.”
