HEARt – 2015

“Her art- I have to say her art – because that’s what it is – Electronic Art – is way out there. Way, way out there far away on “Planet Amber.” This will not be for everyone’s taste, and you know what, who gives a shit. She’s fantastic! There are no words to pigeon-hole this album. Brave, bold, gentle, experimental and even a little scary in places… add that voice and it both caresses and strokes you, at the same time kicking you in the privates for no apparent reason!” 

– Mark Deamhan, THE INDIE SHOW/ON AIR TUNES

 

eleKtro – 2013

CD BABY’S “EDITOR’S PICK” LIST

“Amber’s voice has the reminiscent strength and vitality of Erika Badu or Portishead, but her one woman show is a thing all its own. Inventive, hip and rhapsodic beats wrap themselves around that incredible voice, keeping the album ringing beautifully in mind, an internal repeat that reflects her unique loops and hauntingly relatable and empowering lyrics. Whether lovely vocals, electronic ingenuity or sick samples are your thing, you’re going to want eleKtro in loving rotation!” 

– Mary Otte Six, HIGH TIMES MAGAZINE

it – 2012

CD BABY’S “STAFF PICK” LIST

“From track to acid-drenched track, It. pulses with manic breakbeats, mid-tempo romps, and somnolent trip-hop grooves. It. oozes with gritty synthesizers and boisterous electronic turbulence. Most of all, It. soars with the vibrancy of Amber’s soulful vocals, which fluctuate between sultry crooning, pillow-talk cooing, and a feisty, venomous holler.  A pacifist by nature, this gal rages with the machine, not against it, making for a harmonious and stirring symbiosis of sound.”

– Will Barry, THE NOISE BOSTON

tRip – 2010

“Over two years in the making, tRip is 13 songs that hang together like a single highly textured piece of music. Amber wrote, produced and engineered everything on the disc, sings every vocal, plays every instrument and injects each recording with composed subtext, a reason for being there, that raises tRip above other electronic outings. ‘Girl From Jupiter’ establishes the musical language for the entire album: machine-gun polyrhythms on drum serves as a skeleton to frame her bass, guitar and her angelic voice.”
