Amy Speace, with Nels Andrews
44 Main Street, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY 10706 USA
“Amy Speace sounds uncannily like a 21st Century Joan Baez, her timbred voice full of genuine emotions…the record soars with salient vocals and poetic lyrics,” writes The Classic Rock Examiner in its review of Nashville singer-songwriter Amy Speace’s third album, Land Like A Bird (Thirty Tigers). After releasing two well-received albums on Judy Collins’ Wildflower Records, Bird is Speace’s first record since migrating south from her longtime home in the NYC area. Opening the evening will be Nels Andrews, who came out of nowhere to win the New Folk Songwriting contest at the Kerrville Folk Festival, following past New Folk recipients Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and Lyle Lovett.
