What’s The Buzz ?



APRIL FOOLERY

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!

APRIL FOOLERY

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.

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.
