Amy Speace
Artist Biography: 

“What Amy Speace says – what she sings – she says with a confluence of poetry and honesty, of emotional specificity,” The New York Times.  Since her discovery in 2006 by folk-pop icon Judy Collins, Amy Speace has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk singers.  “Me And The Ghost Of Charlemagne” is her latest album (Proper Records/WindBone) and was recorded in the weeks (and days) surrounding the birth of her son. The title track won “International Song of the Year” from the UK-Americana Music Association in January 2020 and was also one of Rolling Stone’s “10 Top Country songs to listen to now”. Billboard Magazine wrote “Amy Speace stuns on title track…” She has played many festivals in the US and the UK, has appeared on “Mountain Stage” 4 times, and has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Marketplace.” Her songs have been recorded by Judy Collins, Memphis Blues Hall of Fame member Sid Selvidge, Newgrass Trio Red Molly among others.
