What’s The Buzz ?


In like a lion? We shall see…

Hey kids. Winter’s bite is still here. But I have hope…I just got back from the International Folk Alliance Conference in Kansas City, KS where I got to play music and listen and be a part of the tribe. I’ve been Tweeting and Facebooking about my favorites. Do you follow me there? You should!

So there’s loads of stuff this month coming up. Just one Florida tour so that I can rest a bit and write some songs (that’s what I do, or at least it’s what I’m supposed to be doing, although sometimes it feels like I pack, drive, unpack, do laundry, rinse, repeat). But soon I’ll be announcing a very special WEB CONCERT from my Living Room which will take place at the end of March here in Nashville. Keep posted on all the right channels.

What else? Well, The Same Old Storm EP has been released on it’s own now, so you can buy it digitally from ITunes and Amazon etc. Previously, it was only available as part of the Deluxe Stormy Boat package of 2 CD’s. So now you can get it on it’s very own! Whoo hoo. CLICK HERE!

The BBC’s Bob Harris recently began a web series with his son Miles called “Under The Apple Tree” on their WhisperingBob.tv site and I was their first guest! You can check out the three songs I recorded and a neato interview with Miles

And lastly, I was asked to be a part of a PSA campaign to spread the word about the Affordable Healthcare Act. You can see the ad they shot with me, which will air throughout the Southeast, on the HHS website. I know there’s all sorts of controversy about this, but finally there’s affordable healthcare for everyone. Full disclosure: my insurance is THAT cheap because I was able to offset the monthly premium with my Student Loan Interest each month. And yes, 20 years out, I’m still paying off my Student Loans. I’m a musician, remember… my parents are just happy I can pay rent! 🙂

Tourdates for March are to the left.

HOUSE CONCERT OPENING FOR 4/19 ALBANY/SARATOGA SPRINGS. Email me amy@amyspeace.com if you’re interested. All you need is a good space for it, at least 30 people you can get into that space, and we can put on a show!

What’s The Buzz ?




Welcome Spring…it’s a beautiful day here in Nashville and I’m about to head out to a baseball game so I want to keep this brief, because there’s nothing like a minor league baseball game in the cool sunshine with a hotdog and some friends..

What an amazing Spring this has been so far. I’ve got a NEW RECORD, a NEW WEBSITE, and so much news since the last tour. Just in the past few weeks, the record was launched, we’ve been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”, The New York Times and The Tennessean and great reviews have been pouring in from American Songwriter to The Nashville Scene. The day after the NPR piece aired, “Stormy Boat” shot up to #1 on Amazon’s “Movers & Shakers” charts and to #24 overall. ITunes featured the record in it’s “New & Noteworthy” section. And it’s just been extraordinary. We played to wonderful audiences from New York to Boston in the midst of chaos to a beautiful taping of “Mountain Stage” (I’ll let you know the air date) to a sold out show at The Bluebird Cafe this past week. I am beyond grateful for all the good wishes and support of YOU. If you have not yet picked up your copy of the new record, now is the time, as Amazon is running a May Special and you can get it for under $10!!!

So, onto May, which brings me to Knoxville then Texas then back home again. The summer is still working itself out, but I have great news that “Stormy Boat” will officially release overseas (UK/Europe) in September and I’ll be joining John Fullbright on his tour there in September and October. Keep posted here for dates.

In the meantime, check out the website store where you can buy the new record and soon there will be T Shirts as well (for now you can get the new t shirts at shows).

Lastly, it is with a heavy heart that I let you know that my dear friend and touring partner from 2010, Sid Selvidge, passed away a few days ago. I was lucky enough to have shared the experience of making his last record, “I Should Be Blue” (Ardent Records). We sang a few duets. He covered my song “Two”. And we spent the summer of 2010 touring around the country playing shows together. I loved Sid very much. He was a friend and a mentor. I will miss him. If you don’t know about Sid, please check out his music. He was one of the greats. A Memphis-based folk/blues master.
