ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"If there is such a thing as a "date album," this is one, and it's hard to imagine anyone not instantly falling for this gorgeous batch of gently smoldering, country-jazz torch songs.

Waves of watery, tremolo and Latin-leaning guitar give these 11 songs their melting flow and are superbly supported by sedate yet steady rhythms and tasty touches of piano and other key-based instruments. There are, as well, splashes of accordion, autoharp, melodica, glockenspiel and several other elsewhere-underemployed instruments.

Then there's Helgerson's voice-sophisticated and seductive, aged and weary yet fresh and filled with hope, clear as a bell and evocative while sounding eternally elusive.

Placing such talents together, Amelia demonstrates a seamless union of identity, sound and purpose, and the first-rate production allows the band's beauty and brilliance to bloom in full."
The Oregonian 1/27/03


The Oregonian included Somewhere Left to Fall on the top ten best Portland releases of 2002 and said,

"Somewhere Left to Fall," Amelia (self-released):
The breakup a few years ago of alt-country favorites the Flatirons was a shame, a shining promise squandered. But one of that band's songwriters, guitarist Scott Weddle, regrouped with the old rhythm section and a new singer, Teisha Helgerson, whose alluring voice holds center stage in these dusky, soulful treks to the shadow realms of the heart. A new promise is bearing fruit."
1/03/02

"This band is all aboutmood and melancholy. Fueled by singer Teisha Helgerson's jazz-inflected despondency, Amelia steers clear of prairie thunder and heads straight for the gypsy camp, replete with near-tango tempos and Scott Weddle's simmering guitar pluck."
The Portland Tribune

Light a fire, kick back , open some wine.....
Light a fire, kick back, open some wine and put Amelia's somewhere left to fall in the CD player. So far it's the best way I have found to get everyone off my last remaining nerve.

A moving, rich, and interesting album
I highly recommend this cd. It's one of those rare albums where every song is amazing. Her voice is velvety, rich, and full of texture.

Very talented musician.
I would say I really think this albums doesn't reflect the "local band" stereotype. I usually only like a few songs because they will always sound the same, but with Amelia, her music is very poetic and has a good enough variety that I can listen to the whole CD and not feel like I am still listening to track #1. I will add that her voice is very beautiful and tranquil. Thank you!

Elegant and Dreamy
My first listen to Amelia was on the radio and I decided to check out a new sounds. New to me anyway. I enjoyed this disc very much...Nice sounds, great vocals and music that is very enjoyable.

Dreamy and peaceful
Everytime I heard Marigolds on KEXP, I wanted it to keep playing over and over. The song just gets to me. When the cd finally arrived, I must have played it 10 times before the day was over. It's a wonderful cd! Thanks Amelia!

Richard Pearce

A fresh, original sound with outstanding lyrics deiverd by outstanding vocals!
When we left South Carolina and visited Portland this summer, little did we know that one could discover Ameila, in this CD, capturing the spirit and psyche of the Pacific Northwest! Now the rest of the country needs to get on board and hear what real, original music sounds like. Kudos to the band, the amazing spirit of the vocals, and by all means to the truly unique and unparalleled songwriting! A tremendous debut CD that leaves the listener ready to hear more!

Michael Snyder

Truly exceptional!
Amelia has a haunting invigorating sound and this CD in partiuclr is adddictive. It capture the soul of a Northwest rainy day, and its one of those rare albums that you simply cannot tire of ...earthy vocals, and a less is more compliation of music. I own 16,000 CS, this is in my top ten rotation!

Stuck in my head
I heard only part of 'Marigolds' on the radio and it was stuck in my head for the next two days. I decided to go ahead and grab the CD and have loved every track....and I still have the song in my head...
