SXSW Alert: Amy Speace To Play MPress Records & Organic Entertainment Showcases
Grassy Hill Entertainment singer-songwriter Amy Speace and the Tearjerks will be performing at two different showcases during this year’s South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival in Austin, TX. Amy will be performing material from her upcoming record “The Killer in Me” at the Organic Entertainment Party and MPress Records Annual Party.
The announcement follows news that the audience at last year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival voted Amy as their most favorite artist at the annual Emerging Artist Showcase. She will return to Falcon Ridge this summer to participate in the “Most Wanted” performance on Saturday July 25 alongside runner-ups Blue Moose & the Unbuttoned Zippers, Abi Tapia and Lucy Wainwright Roche

Named by WFUV to its “Top 16 To Watch” list last year, Amy Speace is an Americana-rock artist who draws comparisons to Roseanne Cash, Lucinda Williams and Neko Case. Her sophomore album “The Killer In Me”, produced by James Mastro and engineered by Mitch Easter, features 12 new songs and 2 duets with Ian Hunter and “is a collection of alt-country gems, a little dark around the edges.” As a singer, she’s got a soulful voice that grabs your ears. Take note, Amy is one artist you won’t want to miss.” (John Platt, host of “The Sunday Breakfast ” WFUV).
What they’re saying about “The Killer In Me”:
“If you thought that “Songs For Bright Street”, her previous effort was already worth your attention, then this “Killer In Me” (released early March) will certainly be an album you have to ad to your collection!” – Mr Blue Boogie, BillyBop
“If you’re on to the newest trends in music country you must certainly knock at the door of Amy Speace. Those looking for honest and personal work have come to the right address.” – Keys & Chords
“There’s more than nerve and creativity noticeable on the meanwhile fourth album of this singer – songwriter, already the title track “the Killer In Me” and “This Love” feature vintage Lucinda Williams.” – Rootsville.be
“Speace knows how to make a beautifully varied CD that builds a coherent unit
through a wonderful balance of pop, rock and blues, ballads and up-tempo numbers
that never bore you for a minute. A truly excellent and grown-up album.” – MOORS MAGAZINE
