Amber Rae Dunn Releases "Barbershop"

Amber Rae Dunn's New Song "Barbershop" is About Her Life Working In her Father's Barbershop and the Characters She Encounters.

"Barbershop" is Amber Rae Dunn's first release this year. Her plan is to release one single a month for the next ten months. An album will follow in the fall/winter with each song and possibly one or two bonus tracks.

Working with Nashville Producer Billy Smiley, Dunn enjoys captivating listeners by inviting them to join her in a very personal autobiographical style and approach to her songwriting. Amber Rae Dunn's unique style of traditional country is something she calls "Arkansas Delta Country" which describes her love of that classic Memphis Soul sound.

Amber Rae was born and raised in the Arkansas delta alongside other deltas of the great Mississippi River and understands the hard times still present in these areas. Dunn will tell you first hand, "There's something in the water around here." By combining two prominent styles from these areas, Amber hopes to bridge that gap of poverty and sorrow by uplifting her listeners with stories from her childhood and weaving them into catchy memorable melodies that reach deep into your soul and bring out your inner love for the world around you.

"This project combines Memphis Soul with Arkansas Delta Country to provide a deep window into the humanity we all share in our daily lives with a groove that'll have you tapping your toes and singing along before you even know what hit you!" -Amber Rae Dunn
