“Kamminga sings like she was born and raised in Nashville – crystal clear with a twang” – Here Comes The Flood

The music of Jewel, Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves brought big dreams for the small town girl. She independently released her first EP ‘Star-Crossed Lovers’ in March 2017, followed by a tour all over the Netherlands, including great support shows and even touching down in the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee.

She finished law school, her band is ready and so its high time for Amber Kamminga to take over the Netherlands with her catchy country-pop songs!” – translated from Hitzound.com

“To love a genre that is quintessentially American is one thing, the ability to write a track that can stand its ground is another and she pulled it off admirably. Her happy-sad vocals are a perfect fit for telling a tale” – Here Comes The Flood (review Getting To Know You)

Here at country-music.nl the focus is primarily on American artists, America being the cradle of countymusic. But that doesn’t mean no good things are happening outside of North America. Country music is getting hotter and more popular outside of North America” – translated from Country-Music.nl special about Amber Kamminga
