An Evening with Amy Speace
with special guest Rj Cowdery
Amy Speace returns to Natalie’s to promote her new album, Me and the Ghost of Charlemagne, and will be joined by special guest Rj Cowdery. Nashville-based, Amy is a folk singer, timeless and classic, and a bit out of her own era. “She has one of the richest and loveliest voices in the genre and her songs are luxuriously smart,” writes journalist Craig Havighurst (host of Nashville’s “Music City Roots”). “She’s profoundly personal yet also a bit mythic.” Since her discovery in 2006 by folk-pop icon Judy Collins, who signed her to her own imprint Wildflower Records, Speace has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk singers.
Her songs have been recorded by Judy Collins, Memphis Hall of Fame bluesman Sid Selvidge, acclaimed trio Red Molly and many others. Amy has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Marketplace” and has appeared four times on Mountain Stage, as well as many folk festivals around the world. A prolific writer of prose as well, she has also written articles for The New York Times, American Songwriter Magazine, Pop Matters and other journals and magazines. While pregnant with her first baby, she began recording her next solo album, Me & The Ghost of Charlemagne, produced by Grammy-nominated Neilson Hubbard. It will be released September 6, 2019 on Proper Records/Tone Tree (U.S. & Canada only). You can also find her blogging about art & life & motherhood at Menopausal Mommy.
Rj Cowdery recently celebrated the release of her Amy Speace-produced album What If This is All There Is?. Rj has solidified her place in the world of performing singer-songwriters, garnering accolades at Mountain Stage NewSong, Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Wildflower! Arts and Music, Rocky Mountain Folk Festival and Sisters Folk Festival.
