"Sultry and sophisticated cabaret pop with just a whisper of twang that flits in and out like a friendly ghost. The music of Amelia is a staggeringly cool exercise in understatement."
No Depression Magazine
"Amelia's retro approach to their music, but there's nothing old-fashioned about their playing, songwriting or the smoky confidence of lead singer Teisha Helgerson. The tunes put together by guitarist Scott Weddle and bass player Jesse Emerson cover a wide spectrum, and while they tip their hat to diverse styles, they never sound forced or self-conscious."
"Lead singer Teisha Helgerson's husky yet smooth vocals and Amelia's Jazz-influenced, ethereal songs manage sexy mystery and quiet desperation reminiscent of the Cowboy Junkies. Though both band's songs are dark and quiet, Amelia's aren't nearly as depressing as the Junkies' - there's light, sweet and amazing light, at the end of Amelia's tunnels."
"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."
Amelia has emerged from studio sessions in their native Portland, Oregon, with a new record entitled "After All." A bittersweet soundtrack to the year following the release of their critically lauded debut, "Somewhere Left to Fall...," the new collection is highly collaborative and carefully crafted, striking a balance between old and new, worldliness and Americana.
