Ball of Wax 46 Songs: Amanda Winterhalter – What’s This, Death?

Golden-throated Amanda Winterhalter returns to Ball of Wax with “What’s This, Death?,” a somber ballad in a traditional folk style that features only voice and finger-style acoustic guitar. “What’s This, Death?” is appropriately somber and menacing, issuing the warning “you don’t talk to death / you listen close.” Consider this a fine example of one of many styles Winterhalter can confidently deliver. Her recent full length, Olea, showcases Winterhalter’s considerable range, including the album’s triumphant high point, “I’m 100 Years Old,” and “What’s This, Death?” delivers yet one more reason Winterhalter deserves our attention.

Catch Amanda and her band this Friday at the Ball of Wax 46 release show.
