Possessing a commanding voice, a distinctive melodic sensibility and an uncanny knack for nailing complex emotions in song, Nashville based singer-songwriter Amy Speace makes music that's both illuminating and effortlessly accessible. Paste Magazine called Speace's latest release, "The Killer In Me," a "resolutely hopeful take on heartache and loss, [Speace's] beautiful lyrics are spun with a soulful, husky voice that lilts like a country sweetheart but mourns like Leonard Cohen".
Hand-picked by folk/pop icon Judy Collins for her Wildflower Records roster, Speace has toured with Nanci Griffith, Ian Hunter, Little Feat and many other artists, playing to festivals and clubs around the world, including making her debut this year on "Mountain Stage". Recently, "Killer" was named in the Best of 2009 list of NYC's top AAA station, WFUV. Judy Collins, who has recorded Amy's songs, has said "Amy's a remarkable artist, writer and singer—I am a total fan." After graduating from Amherst College with a double degree in English Lit and Theater, Amy moved to NYC to study acting with the intention of being a playwright/actress/director, toured with The National Shakespeare Company, ran her own theater company, then taught herself guitar and began hitting the club scene before being discovered by Judy Collins during 2005's SXSW music conference.
