What’s The Buzz ?

Hi y’all. Fresh back from a whirlwind month or so, from The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival to Storyhill Festival to Sisters Folk Festival, home to Nashville to move to a new house and showcase at The Americana Festival and then off to Europe to tour with the incredible John Fullbright, one of my favorite Okies (Parker Milsaps being another, Jimmy Webb, another and Laurie and Curley and that strange ballet sequence in the red dust). That’s me up there in that photo on a day off with John and our good friend AJ Roach outside the castle in Edinburgh. If you’re just joining the list having found me on the European tour, thanks for swinging by. We played to sold out audiences from London to Utrecht to Belfast to Edinburgh and it was thrilling. I’m coming back in January to headline my own tour, so keep in touch.

The rest of this month is pretty much a writing and recouping time for me, but if any of you out there are songwriters, I work (in these off times) as a coach on Songwriting, Performance and Career Goal Setting for the Indie Songwriter. My rates are reasonable and we can work via phone or Skype, so please email me at amy@amyspeace.com to set up a time and we can talk. I’ve been teaching my Performance class at Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Song School for 7 years now and have also taught at Sisters Folk Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival Song School, Lamb’s Retreat for Songwriters, NERFA, NAFA, through NSAI and various other places. I love doing this, so don’t hesitate to contact me.

November I head up to the Northeast (LOOK LEFT AND YOU’LL SEE THE TOURDATES — PLEASE BUY TIX IN ADVANCE). I have a few openings for potential House Concerts if anyone is interested in hosting. If you’re curious, head HERE and there’s a link to my House Concert Info Sheet (which I adapted from my friend Danny Schmidt’s). It’s the All You Need To Know To Host an Amy Speace Concert In Your Home. 🙂

Here are my free dates for Fan Based House Concerts.

The rest of October – anywhere within reasonable driving distance to Nashville – GA, TN, Etc.
Wed. 11/6 – PA, MD, NY, NJ
Tues 11/12 – MD, DC, PA, NJ
Thu 11/14 – MD, PA, NJ, DC
Sun 11/17 – PA, WV, MD

So please don’t hesitate to contact me. House Concerts are fun for me and fun for you and they are very simple to put on and make a really cool event for your friends and neighbors.

Stay in touch with me via Facebook and Twitter. And a reminder that not only are ALL of my CD’s for sale on the OFFICIAL AMY SPEACE STORE (which is the best way to get my merchandise direct), also T Shirts are there.

What’s The Buzz ?

From a sun-filled kitchen in Hackey, UK…

I’m so thrilled to be the support act for my friend John Fullbright, an incredible artist of heart and soul and depth that belies his 26 years. He was nominated for a Grammy this year for Best Americana Album and I get to tag along for a few weeks here. I really would love all of you to come out and hear him, plus we’ll be doing “The Sea & The Shore” each night together during my opening set so come early. The details are to the left here and as always, check TOURDATES on my website for more details and for the future…

Come to the merch table and say hello if you’ve seen me before with Ian Hunter or Alejandro Escovedo (or just come say hi)!


What’s The Buzz ?

From the stinkin’ heat of Nashville, TN…

This mid-July posting will be brief, I promise, as I have been off the road most of this month, writing and training my new dog Flo how to sit, stay and leave me a tiny bit of room in my own bed. She’s a Redbone Coonhound rescue from the woods of East Tennessee and already thinks she owns the place. I’m heading out this weekend to Salt Lake City, Utah to play a few shows, teach a few classes and if you’re in the area, I’d love to see you. If you’re not, please check in on my TOURDATES on my website, as chances are I’m heading your way soon. Here’s the lowdown on what’s coming up!

August: Indiana, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest and Music City Roots in Nashville!
September: Sisters Folk Festival, OR, Americana Music Fest in Nashville, then off to Europe with John Fullbright
October: Europe
November: Northeast
December: Decembersongs ’13!

Buy the new record. Also, t shirts are coming very soon to the STORE on my website!

What’s The Buzz ?

Amy Speace_001

How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat is an 11-song journey through grief and grace produced by Neilson Hubbard, Dave Marsh (who contributed liner notes) calls it “the most daring, confident, ambitious and beautiful album Amy Speace has made since she began recording.” It includes a duet with Grammy-nominated John Fullbright and guest appearances by Ben Sollee and Mary Gauthier.

How to Sleep In A Stormy Boat is here! On April 16th, my newest record will release into the world and I couldn’t be more excited. On that day, I am thrilled to be playing at JOE’S PUB in New York, NY w/ my band. If you’re in NYC, please plan to be there!!! Many of you contributed to my Kickstarter campaign months ago and your belief in me and generosity small and large made this possible. In a few days the new website will launch and I encourage you all to buy the record(s) from my STORE or in person at a show. Of course, you can also find me at ITunes, Amazon, and some local indy record stores as well. The companion EP, “Same Old Storm” will only be available as part of a Bonus pack, the 2 CD Stormy Boat Deluxe (which means you cannot buy it separately). I can’t wait for you to hear it.

And I’m bringing the tour your way and I really would love to see you! I know how hard it is to make a plan to get out to hear live music, but doesn’t it make you feel better? This will be a special show: my trio The Storm (Josh Oliver on guitars and Hannah Schroeder on cello) will be joined by our special guest openers and my dear friends The Sea The Sea, Chuck E. Costa and Mira Stanley. This is a rare event, y’all, so I hope you’ll come out, buy tickets in advance, pack the places. We’ll be winding our way from Boston to New York to Virginia to MOUNTAIN STAGE (playing w Billy Bragg & Joe Pugg & The Flatlanders…pinch me) to Ann Arbor and Chicago and home to THE BLUEBIRD CAFE, home of legendary songwriters, where we’ll do a special night, an “Evening with…” kind of thing. A good reason to make that trip to Nashville…

And we’ve got 2 openings for House Concerts on this tour. Tuesday April 23 and Thursday April 24. We’d prefer you to come to the shows already scheduled, but if you can’t get to them, how bout have us in your home or community center? Northern MI, Ohio, Indiana, etc. Let me know directly at amy@amyspeace.com and I can walk you through what it takes. It’s easy, it’s fun. You just need a space big enough to hold at least 25 people (our minimum) sitting on chairs, pillows, the floor, etc. We’ll play unplugged.

Tourdates are below. Please come out! I’d love to see you.
