I'm writing this post for my friend Meg, who is a great singer in her own right.
On Friday, August 29, Meg's parents will be hosting a "house concert" for Amy Speace.
Here's the info:
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Home of the Brauns. Contatct Meg's mom Diane for more info.
Cost: $10 contribution to artist.
Refreshments will be served.
This is what Meg says about Amy: Amy is really hot right now in the acoustic/Americana music world.
And, here are a couple reviews of Amy Speace (borrowed from her Web site):
"The talented Ms. Speace is lately taking her Americana away from twangy contemplation toward tangy confrontation. Paste magazine has discovered her, and you should too... she’s well worth checking out."
Barry Mazor, The Village Voice
"[Speace's] arresting voice combines the best parts of Lucinda Williams with Roseanne Cash ... [and] brings an unflagging sense of 21st century hipness to all her songs. Produced by James Mastro, Songs For Bright Street delivers big-budget sound worthy of any A-list performer."
Steven Stone, Vintage Guitar Magazine
So there you have it. I hope some of you might be able to check it out. :)
