Lennard’s unique blend of Americana, roots rock and distinctly female point of view has already won her early praise and acclaim.  Teenage Kicks called her “a budding Americana sweetheart” and the audience response to her first single, “I Wish It Were Mine,” has been almost unanimously positive.

Lennard penned all ten tracks on the album, making it her most personal work. Through her passionate songwriting, Lennard opens up her heart and soul for all listeners to see. DiscoveringArtists.com said, “Honest songwriting is such a rarity these days, but Amy Lennard nails it on this album…she weaves a delicate balance of acoustic rock and semi-folk…and all you can feel is her voice, her words resonate.”

For I Need To Love, Lennard produced the CD with the help of Co-Producers Jon Gordon ( Suzanne Vega ) and Ben Wisch ( Marc Cohn, Jonathan Brooke ).  As a result, the album captures the electricity of her live show and introspective songwriting. Discussing why she chose the album name I Need To Love, Lennard feels, “It's a powerful insight and awakes a lot of different thoughts and feelings in people. The idea came to me a few years ago, when I was having a hard time and realized I needed to start taking responsibility for my own happiness."

Lennard recently played a pre-album release show on June 30th at the Cutting Room in Manhattan.  The packed house of Amy’s fans celebrated the performance with a standing ovation and demanded an encore.  Lennard is supported by a strong band behind her solid and soulful vocals, giving her show a rare and enticing depth. Through songs like “I Wish It Were Mine” and “El Paso,” Lennard wears her heart on her sleeve as the audience connects with their own inner emotions and desires.
