Amber Joy Poulton
Amber Joy Poulton currently lives on the Yorke Peninsula at Corny Point. She channels her obsession with the queens of country music into her own songwriting with an "old school" vibe bringing to life tales of heartbreak, sorrow, love happiness, family life and yes even sweet revenge with several murder ballads. It's traditional country all the way.
Multi-awarded South Australian singer songwriter Amber Joy Poulton found inspiration in the ‘western’ themes of old time Country music when writing for her fifth album, How It Used To Be, which was recorded in Nashville. However, her new film clip for In Your Wildest Dreams has a regional SA connection with it being filmed at the gorgeous Berry Bay.
Amber is possessed by traditional classics, how country music ‘used to be’ and is currently channeling Loretta in her successful touring production Coal Miner’s Daughter which recently sold out 3 shows at Adelaide’s Her Majesty’s Theatre as well as major theatres all over Australia. While How It Used To Be is Amber’s moodiest album yet with little redemption for those who have wronged in the killer lyrics, the songs breathe Patsy, Dolly & Tammy & have all the charm of a by-gone era, to which she feels aligned.
This revealing album is her third original offering that adds to her versatility alongside her two tribute albums. She has toured extensively throughout Australia and overseas with Nashville, Norfolk Island & the high seas aboard Cruisin’ Country for three extraordinary cruises plus Beccy Cole’s Aussie Road Crew as well as her yearly trek to Tamworth & country music festivals like Boyup Brook, Gympie Muster, Mildura, Horsham, Riverland & more. But it’s her touring the country with theatre show Coal Miner’s Daughter that has garnered fans from every performance with her astounding ability to put down the songwriting cap & take on the role of Loretta Lynn in theatres all over Australia.
