“From the opening track “One Door Opens” I was pulled in. Her music has a hop in its step with optimism and hope for a better day. The album is really well produced with all the elements balanced and breathing like a true professional. With this collection of songs Amy shows that she is no singer-come-lately but a true talent.”

“Ms Gordon has more in her armoury that she can use to make that crater in your consciousness. Take off your Kevlar helmet for the title song of her album, “Waiting On Go”, is nothing less than a showtune infused with near gothic sensibilities and she sends the song out into the crowd as if theatre was all there was.”

“All that private noodling and honing of craft has paid off. Gordon was named a finalist for the 2012 SongDoor International Songwriting Competition in the pop music category.”

“Gordon’s song speaks to her generation, reminding others that lost opportunities leave room for new chances. Her lyrics include somber lines like “Remember the first job that you loved so much, and then you were let go,” that are backed up by reassuring affirmations like “You don’t know what’s in store for you.” Her theatrical composition supports the storytelling by providing energy-filled hooks and rolling tempos for the lyrics to sit on.”

“Beautiful voice, beautiful melody, catchy tunes! Highly recommend this CD for those people who truly appreciate a true music talent!”

“Amy has a beautiful voice. My favorites are “One Door Opens” and “Wake Up Everymorning”. Loved the lyrics and enjoyed them all. The “One Door Opens” is stuck in my head and I love to sing along thru my long commute. What a talented young lady!!”

“I just bought and listened to this album a few times through, it’s a very fine debut – I’m partial to catchy pop songs with lyrics that could work on a movie soundtrack and there are several strong songs in this collection that would work well – One Door Opens, Waiting on Go, Back, and Someone Just Like You. These are some of my favorites – they are melodic songs with thoughtful lyrics. A quite listenable album, I’ve got it on background while I work.”
