Amy Speace Launches European Tour

Wildflower Records artist Amy Speace will be touring throughout November in the UK, Germany, Austria and Luxemburg in support of her recently released album “Songs For Bright Street” in German through O-tone/Edel and the rest of Europe through ADA/Ryko.

It follows radio airplay across Germany, with some stations spinning the songs from the album up to 25 times a week as well as great reviews in German press and the UK:

“[Songs for Bright Street] is a superior example of stunning music at its best … guaranteed to make waves this side of the Atlantic. … a unique country-folk sound that can be best described as an Americana Dido… both illuminating and effortly accessible.” The Verve (UK)

“A fully convincing Singer-Songwriter / Roots-Rock, in short Americana album, that excels with a refreshing variety, superb musicians and wonderfully crafted lyrics. Speace’s lyrical elegance and the inventiveness of her finely selected metaphors intertwine very convincingly with the craft of her band, The Tearjerks and give each of the 13 songs its very unique identity. Boredom never comes near the listener, of course.” Home of Rock (Germany)

For more information on Amy Speace

Amy Speace has already won a loyal grass-roots fan base, thanks in large part to live performances that merge warmth, humor and emotional immediacy, and to a tireless touring schedule that’s already taken her across the United States. She’s also won considerable critical acclaim, with The Village Voice observing that Speace is “taking her Americana away from twangy contemplation toward tangy confrontation” and noting that she’s “not another of those breathy would-be child poets, but a real singing writer of songs.” Time Out New York stated, “Amy Speace plays sweet, twangy folk music with a clear voice and an innocent vulnerability,” while The Nashville Scene noted that she “balances wry humor with open-hearted honesty.” And renowned Nashville critic Robert K. Oermann, writing in Music Row, dubbed her a “new star.”
