What’s The Buzz ?

I just got back from an incredible weekend here in the woods in Tennessee, where I led my very first “Songs From The Well” Songwriters Retreat & Workshop. It won’t be my last. I’m already in the process of planning dates for Spring and Fall 2016. Stay tuned as I announce the dates, as these retreats are limited to only 14 writers.

I’m slowing down this month, just a few shows, to rest for the holidays, move (only a few miles from my previous house) and nest, before Decembersongs goes out on tour for our 6th year starting 12/3 and heading to the Midwest & Southeast this year.

If you’re in Birmingham, AL, Baton Rouge and Kansas City & St. Louis, I’m coming your way. Look left…

So a few recommendations for this cooler month.
Here’s what I’m reading right now:
Teaching A Stone To Talk, Annie Dillard
Natchez Burning, Greg Iles
The Art of Memoir, Mary Karr
Daring Greatly, Brene Brown

Here’s what I’m listening to right now:
Chris Stapleton, Traveller
Something More Than Free, Jason Isbell
Taj Mahal, anything really … kind of obsessed…

And I’m obsessed with the HBO series The Nick.

Have a great month, get outside, don’t eat too much turkey, call your mother, adopt a dog, stop drinking diet soda, add meditation into your life, go on a hike, don’t go shopping on November 27th (thank you REI for staring that trend) and keep in touch on Facebook & Twitter

I know…I know…it’s almost the end of the month and I’m finally letting you know where I’m going, but I’ve been bit distracted writing and stockpiling songs, writing with Neilson Hubbard, Ben Glover, Mary Gauthier, Tim Easton, Ryan Culwell, Beth Nielsen Chapman. Looking forward to getting these songs out to the world.

So much stuff but first, and most importantly, all tourdates are to the left and full details to be found at TOURPAGE so always check in there. I’m headed to TEXAS later this week for a week of shows. Before I do that, I need new tires on this van! And if anyone’s interested in trading their Prius for a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with 200,000 miles but a lot of love, I’d love to talk (wishful thinking)…

T SHIRT SALE: There’s a sale going on over at my webstore on T Shirts so get over there while they’re hot. They won’t last. We’re on our last batch…

NEW RECORD: It’s starting! I’m stockpiling songs and will be headed back to the studio in June (in Memphis) and July (in Nashville) to start the next record, again produced by the fabulous Neilson Hubbard, which will be released in March 2015. For my Stormy Boat Kickstarter family, I’ll be starting a Kickstarter campaign this summer to re-enlist the team for the next one. We’ll have it recorded by August but we’re holding off on releasing it till next year to make sure we get the rest of the details right all at once (press/radio/tour/European release/video/vinyl! etc.) and I would love it if everyone would even just pre-order the release. I’ll keep y’all updated.

SUMMER PLANS/TEACHING: So much coming up…I’ll be touring with Tim Easton in June and going to Woodyfest in July. I’ve got a few festivals this summer to play and a few I’ll be teaching at. I’ll be returning to Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Song School to teach performance and headed to The Swannanoa Gathering for the first time to teach performance and songwriting.

As always, if you are interested in hosting a house concert, please email me at amy@amyspeace.com and we can talk about it!

Spring is here…spring is here…spring is here! March has been chilly and productive – mostly I’ve been writing, stockpiling songs, writing with Neilson Hubbard, Ben Glover, Mary Gauthier, Beth Nielsen Chapman. Looking forward to getting these songs out to the world. I had a great time last night playing at Tin Pan South, an annual festival of songwriters by NSAI here in Nashville. Got to swap songs with some friends – Ryan Tanner, Neilson and Amber Rubarth. Tonight I may head out to a neighborhood hang to hear Tommy Womack. I love Nashville.
I won’t bore you with too much this month, just the quick facts, so you can get back outside with your dogs, in your gardens, with your spring crush, etc.

TOUR: I’m headed to the Northeast in a few days. Then at the end of the month I’ll be back to Texas. All tourdates are to the left. More details to be found at TOURPAGE

NEW RECORD: It’s starting. I’m stockpiling songs and will be headed back to the studio in June (in Memphis) and July (in Nashville) to start the next record, which will be released in March 2015. I’ll be posting information on all that soon.

SUMMER PLANS/TEACHING: So much coming up…I’ll be touring with Tim Easton in June, taking July off to record. I’ve got a few festivals this summer to play and a few I’ll be teaching at. I’ll be returning to Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Song School to teach performance and headed to The Swannanoa Gatheringfor the first time to teach performance and songwriting.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Earlier today, I thought I’d written this very long email to all of you, telling you of tourdates, news, gift offers, coaching sessions…all sorts of things. It took me an hour or so to knock this email out. I read it and re-read it to make sure it was correct, sent it (or so I thought) only to have it disappear into the atmosphere. And now, I’m pressed for time. Got to pack. Got to change strings. Got to print out set lists and learn my holiday songs on my Uke again. So forgive my brevity, but I’m taking this whole episode not as a glitch in the computer or my own mistake, but as a gift from the Gods above, teaching me something I need to learn–cut to the chase, right?
So in the spirit of the week ahead, I would like to thank each and every one of you for joining me along this winding path, this peripatetic career. When asked to bow my head on Thursday, I will most certainly be sending out a silent grace for my friends and fans who keep me moving forward.
Then I will stuff myself asleep. 🙂
For news and offers, please visit me at my FACEBOOK PAGE http://www.facebook.com/amyspeace. I’ll be posting regularly there. I’m doing a big blowout T shirt sale: all t shirts are $5.00 (plus s/h). You’ll find all that there. Also, songwriting and performance critiques and show information. I’d love to see you there.
In the meantime, short and sweet so we can all get to the pumpkin pie.
