Amy Speace – Sunday Breakfast – 2013

by John Platt – read on

After many years as part of the New York music scene, Amy Speace relocated to Nashville 3 years ago and has already become a vital part of the community there. Her brand new CD, “How to Sleep in a Stormy Boat,” includes co-writes with Mary Gauthier, Robby Hecht, and Sally Barris, and a duet with Grammy nominee John Fullbright. It’s a very personal album, reflecting the challenges she’s faced the last couple of years, and also a very literate one, with a Shakespearean passage setting up each song. She’s one of my favorite artists – and favorite people – so it was a real treat to welcome here back to Studio A.
