When Amy Duncan sings there’s a feeling that her emotionally charged songs are a reflection of a life-lived. There’s a level of experience that goes beyond imagining. It’s the old maxim ‘You had to be there’ and with these songs you just know that the singer has walked the roads she sings about. This is evident in her latest lovingly fashioned and superbly produced album ‘Cycles of Life’ Dan Holland, Folk Words
