Elmore Magazine: “…a well done, unpretentious album with a human feel, one that any fan of Americana-type storytelling ought to enjoy…Lennard conveys both emotional vulnerability and determined strength with equal conviction…”

JSI TOP 21: “Singer/songwriter Amy Lennard works her way to the hearts of every coffeeshop-folk lover worldwide.  A solid voice, a perfect level of production, and intensely personal lyrics personifies what it means to be an emotionally driven artist.  Keep an eye out for Lennard‘s rise to stardom!” “With her first full-length album, I Need To Love, NYC singer-songwriter Amy Lennard reveals a personal, emotional side…The vocal are straightforward and strong; unlike most female vocals today, they are not overly digitalized, leaving them with a raw, natural feel…folk/pop rock songs that will be well received by a mainstream audience.” “Lennard is without a doubt in the league of some of the best song writers and story tellers of our time…some very real, perceptive, strong and vulnerable lyrics that are better than anything you’ll find on reality television.” “ feels fresh and immediate in the way timeless music always does…Amy Lennard has a gift for crafting songs that reveal deeper and more dangerous truths than most songwriters…are willing to expose.”
