    “Amy Speace channels the classics,” writes Billboard Magazine of  her latest release “That Kind Of Girl”. Jon Pareles of The New York Times described the record as “grace over drama” and No Depression wrote “The next time someone tells you they don’t make good music anymore, tell them they must not have heard of Amy Speace. She is a timeless singer/songwriter who has captured this writer’s attention with a record which should be a topic of debate on several year-end award lists.“  Recorded in East Nashville with producer Neilson Hubbard and a small ensemble of musicians, the record is spare and direct, honest and focused.  Holly George-Warren, celebrated author and music critic, calls it “breathtaking.” And just as critics were raving about her new album, she was hired by The New York Times' Financial Section to write an original song and an accompanying essay about the financial challenges of being an artist.  The song, "Spent" was featured on NPR's "Marketplace."  She has also written pieces for The Nashville Scene, Blue Rock Review, Performing Songwriter Magazine, among others.

    Baltimore–born singer- songwriter Speace started her creative career out in the theater. She studied classical acting in NYC after graduating with high honors from Amherst College and spent a few years carving out a life spent rushing from lower east side theater rehearsals to film and commercial auditions to many support jobs which ranged from legal secretary to personal assistant for actress/singer Lainie Kazan. After a spectacular breakup with a boy in a rock band, she bought a cheap guitar and started putting her poetry to music and began appearing at local folk clubs like The Sidewalk Cafe, The Bitter End and The Living Room. 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 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.  In 2013, she received the best reviews of her career with"How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat,” a song cycle inspired by Shakespearean characters, winning 4 stars from Mojo Magazine and a feature on NPR’s “All Things Considered”.   Her songs have been recorded by Judy Collins, Red Molly, Memphis Hall of Fame blues artist Sid Selvidge and others.

    In her debut album, Real Me, Brit stitches together her East Kentucky roots and life experiences with verby strings and crying steel guitar to create a quilt that warms the soul. Grammy-nominated producer Dave Brainard seamlessly combines the emotional keenness of Brit's songwriting and sultry voice with superb musicianship. With musicians like Mickey Raphael and hit songwriters like rock-star Dan Auerbach, who co-penned half of the album with Brit, Real Me is a collection of rhythmic hooks and catchy melodies that will take up residence in your head and heart. The aptly titled Real Me has a unique vulnerability that is both empathetic and empowering. Brit’s painfully honest vocals convey sincere longing and melancholy even in the happiest and most humorous moments of the album. Real Me is melding genres to redefine traditional country music. Following in the path of Loretta Lynn, Brit Taylor is sure to be music’s next Kentucky sweetheart.

    Splintered from the foundations of Waylon Jennings, The Rolling Stones, and John Prine, Low in the Saddle, Long in the Tooth,” is an album conceived in the trenches; on the bare bones, blue collar battlefield of the music industry:  the honky tonks and bars.
        Rousing numbers, “The Barrel,” “Ludowici,” “The Bastards Won,”  found a place among honky tonk standards in marathon bar sets before making their way onto a recording.
        Late night drives and blown chances inspired “Wrong Side of the Wind,” “Leaving Lonesome,” and “Cold Coffee and Yesterday’s News,” and duet with the great Danielle Howle. The songs bring down the tempo and drive the mood into a more introspective frame.
        “The El Paso Kid,” may be the signature song on the record, melding a honky tonk stomp with thoughtful lyrics and a poignant story of hard luck and hope.    
        Produced and engineered by Mitch Webb at Mantis Studios in North Charleston, “Low in the Saddle, Long in the Tooth,” is the culmination of three years of writing and performing live.  The songs have been torn from yellow legal pads and thrown under faded stage lights from Charleston to New Orleans and most spots in between.
        “Low in the Saddle, Long in the Tooth,” is slightly irreverent and full of heart and wit.  It does not pander to anyone in particularly but strives to make everybody take little piece for themselves.
         “Low in the Saddle, Long in the Tooth,” will be available online and at your favorite record shop in February 2015.
