Amy Atchley

Where You Go

Phases & Stages

In the Nineties, Amy Atchley flitted between NYC and this Southwest music mecca she currently calls home with husband Elias Haslanger. The seven songs here constitute her first release in five years, and Where You Go settles into a laid-back ethos blasted with a summery, Barton Springs vibe. A tribute to the couple's daughters Lulu and Paris, the title track and "Raincoat" fit in neatly with adult contemporary songstresses like Sarah Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson, piano ballads nuanced by her delicate, controlled vox. "Steal Me" sounds like a Twin Peaks love provocation, swaying back and forth through a haze of guitar and key scales. Acoustic joint "The Marrying Dress" pegs Atchley's homecoming best, both bright and touched by expansive guitar as long as the open highway.
