Amy Speace To Open For Ian Hunter, The Legendary Lead Singer Of Mott The Hoople

Americana-rock recording artist Amy Speace will be opening for highly influential British rock vocalist and songwriter Ian Hunter. The show, being held at NYC's City Winery on Thursday, July 23 at 9:00 PM, follows the release of Ian's new solo album, Man Overboard on July 21st.

Amy will be playing songs from her own just recently released album "The Killer In Me" on Wildflower Records. Critics have already been raving about the album:

Critics are also smitten with the New Jersey-based folk rocker, and 'The Killer In Me,' out now:

"her velvety, achy voice recalls an early Lucinda Williams. Sounding grounded but wounded, Speace exudes the vulnerability of someone who's loved and lost."
- Alex Cohen,, 6.12.09

"a deep, dark album full of lush, emotive lyrics, masterful acoustic guitar work and just the right mix of percussion to make up-tempo numbers"
- Nancy Dunham, Washington Post (DC), 6.12.09

"[Speace] will likely increase her following substantially with this album. It's a dark, deeply personal album... a rough-edged, roots-rock sound that perfectly complements Speace's unsettling lyrics."
- Jay Lustig, Newark Star Ledger (NJ), 6.26.09

"Amy Speace revels in her commanding growl on 'The Killer in Me.' Fans of Melissa Etheridge and the Indigo Girls could connect."
- Jon Takiff, Philadelphia Daily News (PA), 6.30.09

Possessing a commanding voice, a distinctive melodic sensibility and an uncanny knack for nailing complex emotions in song, AMY SPEACE makes music that’s both illuminating and effortlessly accessible. Her forthcoming release, The Killer In Me, follows her 2006 breakthrough Songs for Bright Street. While Songs won her a loyal international fan base, The Killer In Me finds the NY-based artist forging into deeper, darker lyrical and musical terrain, delivering an album of startling intimacy and resonance.
