AMERICAN songwriter Amelia White is set to return to the UK next month.

And she's bringing the songs from her incredible new album to Kelso as part of a mini-tour of Scotland.

Amelia recently released her stunning album Rhythm Of The Rain, which was co-written with Grammy Award winner Ben Glover.

The tracks were penned while she was touring the UK in 2016 and viewing the bitterly divisive Trump-Clinton election season back home.

As well as playing the The Tipsy Ghillie in Kelso on Tuesday, June 26, Amelia will also perform her new album in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Rhythm Of The Rain was initially released as a nine song album late in 2017 in the UK as a thank you for loving her songs and providing a kind of shelter from the tumult back home.

That ocean of separation and her loneliness gave her the necessary distance to paint her picture of the shake-up.

Amelia uses observations, images and melody to tell her stories.

Music City Roots host and journalist Craig Havighurst wrote 'her songs each have some fascinating crystalline shape that invites close attention and touch'.

What separates Amelia White from most other songwriters in the Americana genre is her detail.

Like a short story writer steeped in the gothic humidity of the backroads, she illuminates the ordinary, the magic in the process of creating.

She is a rock and roll soothsayer, an East Nashville Cassandra with an Americana gospel shout thicker that the paper-thin illusion of fame and money.

Comparisons have been made to the likes of Patti Smith, Lucinda Williams, Roseanne Cash and even Tom Petty.

Make up your own mind at the The Tipsy Ghillie on Tuesday, June 26.
