What’s The Buzz ?


Hey everyone! Just back from an amazing tour in Holland and a few days in London. Can’t wait to get back there (July UK and October the Netherlands). But for now, I’m in Nashville where it’s been about 7 degrees. Today it’s hovering in the low 50’s, so I’m gonna make this really quick so I can get outside into this sunshine. So just the important stuff.

Firstly, I’ve had to cancel the Pacific NW tour I was about to embark upon with Kenny White and I apologize profusely. We are rescheduling those dates for the Fall so Portland, Seattle, Eugene and Sisters, we will be back. Thanks for understanding. Life comes up and sometimes you just have to deal with life first. I miss y’all out there, though, so I can’t wait to get to you.

Second, the companion EP to “How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat” called “Same Old Storm” has only been available as a set with the full record. UP TILL NOW! We are releasing the EP on it’s own digitally later this month all over the place from my website to Amazon to I Tunes. So check in with the news page on my website for the exact date. It includes a few unreleased songs and a solo version of “The Sea & The Shore”. Can’t wait for you to have it!

This month I’m heading to Kansas for a few dates with my buddy http://www.ryanculwell.comhttp://www.ryanculwell.com who is amazeballs. Then we head to Kansas City for the International Folk Alliance Conference where I’m showcasing on Friday night. See some of you there…

So let’s cross our fingers that Punxatawny Phil sees his shadow. Or doesn’t…I can never remember which it is. I just want a not-so-extreme winter. Pipes bursting, high heat bills, long down coats in a southern town…it’s not right.

Stay warm,
Amy

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.
xoxo
Amy
