Stephen Holden on Amanda McBroom

The NYTimes on the friend-of-this-blog appearing at the Metropolitan Room: ”

Amanda McBroom is a gusher. By that, I don’t mean an obsequious well-wisher brimming with feigned enthusiasm, but a singer and songwriter who overflows with warmth and good humor, tempered with a hard, clear-eyed wisdom. Ms. McBroom, whose most famous song is “The Rose,” writes in a plain, broad-based pop-country-folk style that has a theatrical heft. The best of her lyrics, many of which address the inner lives of desperate housewives, go the quick of experience with a visionary acuity.”
