Nashville neighbors Tim Easton and Amy Speace team up with Easton’s
long-time fiddler Megan Palmer for a string of dates this summer. A seemingly unlikely pairing: Easton, a
Ohio native, with a gruff soulful voice and rootsy songs that cut to the heart
of the matter and Speace, formerly of NYC, with a crystalline pure voice and
poetically concise songs, the two artists share a grounding in great
storytelling, one foot in the past and one foot firmly moving toward whatever
Easton is a highly acclaimed singer-songwriter whose most recent
album,?"Not Cool", spent an impressive 20 weeks on the AMA Americana
Top 40. As a?troubadour whom Rolling Stone praised as having a "novelist's
sense of?humanity," Easton's Not Cool - his seventh
album - further expands his?already impressive output of melodic and nuanced
tunes. Now living happily?in East Nashville, Easton maintains a rigorous and
far reaching tour?schedule. He has also been contributing to film scores and
Smolowitz's powerful, award-winning 2011 documentary, "The?Power of
Amy Speace says – what she sings –
she says with a confluence of poetry and honesty, of emotional specificity,” wrote
The New York Times of Amy’s 4th release, “How To Sleep In A
Stormy Boat,” an ambitious song cycle inspired by Shakespeare. The album brought critical raves from
NPR’s “All Things Considered,” rock critic Dave Marsh, American Songwriter
and UK tastemaker Mojo Magazine.
Amy has migrated happily to East Nashville but spent 20 years in the NYC
area. She was discovered by Judy Collins while playing in small folk clubs who
brought her to an international audience.
Mary Gauthier, writes of Amy, "There are voices that serve as a
bridge from the past to the future and act as soul connectors, and as a people
we need them to keep singing. These voices open hearts with this rare, one in a
million quality. Amy Speace has such a voice. Just ask the legendarily
discerning Judy Collins; she'll tell you. Amy's got it, and then some. She is a
timeless artist, a time traveler. Part past, part future. And that’s a good
thing, a really good thing."
