Championed by US folk icon Judy Collins, singer-songwriter Amy Speace matches crystalline vocal allure with fearlessly honest, vividly poetic lyrics. After glowing reviews for 2013’s How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat, we celebrate her newest 2015 release That Kind of Girl.
“Amy Speace channels the classics,” writes Billboard Magazine of her upcoming March 2015 release, “That Kind Of Girl”, her most personal work yet. “What Amy Speace says, what she sings, she says with a confluence of poetry and honesty, of emotional specificity,” writes The New York Times.

Baltimore–born Folk/Americana songwriter Speace received rave reviews for her 2013 record, “How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat,” a song cycle inspired by Shakespearean characters, from Mojo Magazine to The New York Times to a feature on NPR’s “All Things Considered”. She was discovered by Judy Collins in 2005, releasing her debut in 2006 on Collins’ Wildflower Records, “Songs For Bright Street” to rave reviews.

“The Killer In Me” was released in 2009 with NPR comparing her to a young Lucinda Williams. She moved to Nashville from NYC in 2009, releasing “Land Like A Bird” on Thirty Tigers. Her songs have been recorded by Judy Collins, the late Memphis blues artist Sid Selvidge, Red Molly and others. Her song “The Weight of the World”, which Judy Collins has called “one of the best political folk songs I’ve ever heard” was named as the #4 Folk Song of the Decade by NYC’s premiere AAA radio station WFUV.

She has toured and shared the stage with Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith, Ian Hunter, Alejandro Escovedo.

A Magna cum laude graduate of Amherst College, where she studied literature and playwrighting, she did graduate work in Classical Acting at The National Shakespeare Conservatory in NYC and was a company member of the National Shakespeare Company and Expanded Arts Theater Company in NYC. She was the Artistic Director and Founder of Five Points Theater Company in NYC and has acted and directed in NYC and Regional Theater before becoming a full-time touring and recording musician.

Along with her busy concert career, she teaches songwriting and performance at Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Song School, The Kerrville Folk Festival Song School, Sisters Americana Song & Art Academy, The Swannannoa Gathering and privately coaches songwriters in Nashville and on tour. more >>>
