'An Offering'
#1 ~ Nov 2015 EuroAmericana Chart
#1 ~ Oct 2015 EuroAmericana Chart

Texas Music Magazine
"Tough, sweet, and hard to shake, An Offering contains some of the best songwriting you're liable to hear this year. She puts flesh on the familiar bones of Southern gothic — and makes them sound like lived experience, only described by a sharp observer with a store of original images."
— Madison Searle

American Roots UK
"This gifted and highly individual singer songwriter is very much her own stylist ...setting her apart from the pack and making her instantly recognizable as a hugely talented complete individualist... full of originality and diversity and the only thing predictable about her music is that one great song and vocal performance will follow another... Amanda's atmospheric 'drawl' brings an unusual bluesy jazziness feel... her lovely vocal manipulating the lyrics and depth of feeling in every one of these beautifully written tales. It is that complete individuality of style that sets her apart when many singer songwriters blend together with nothing making one recognizably different from the next. Amanda has broken that mould..."
— Mike Morrison

Maverick Magazine
"Her songs, at times delivered with a tender fragility, and sometimes with a raw punchiness, speak of hard times, the human spirit, and its will to endure. The songs all have a retro blues feel to them...Janis Joplin-esque and R&B upbeat tracks cut against soulful, melodic songs. Amanda Pearcy's real-life experience and honest portrayal is conveyed in each and every song."
— Megan Gnad

3rd Coast Music Magazine
"An extraordinary piece of original Southern Gothic."
— John Conquest

"Amanda Pearcy is a songwriter who plays, without any doubt, in the top division of her generation. Her writing makes me think not only of Lucinda Williams, but also of Tom Russell, Jason Isbell, and Gillian Welch."
— Dani Heyvaert

Houston Press
"In a field overcrowded with dreamers chasing the same rainbow, An Offering is a low-­key Americana gem."
— Chris Gray
