Folk singer/songwriter Amy Speace is coming to Café Nine in New Haven on July 7.
Her new album The Killer In Me, out June 30, is Amy's second on Judy Collins' Wildflower Records, and the legendary folk singer is so fond of Amy's new song "The Weight of the World" that she's been singing it at her own shows.
Amy wrote the songs on The Killer In Me following the end of her ten-year marriage during a period of isolation in the Catskills. The result is a "deep, dark album full of lush, emotive lyrics, masterful acoustic guitar work and just the right mix of percussion...If you bemoan the lack of solid singer-songwriters in the folk world who can bridge inner turmoil with universal experience, Speace is just what you need to hear" (Washington Post, 6.12.09).
And NPR.org describes the title track as "twangy and tragic...and her velvety, achy voice recalls an early Lucinda Williams. Sounding grounded but wounded, Speace exudes the vulnerability of someone who's loved and lost."
