Amy Speace is a folk singer, timeless and classic, and a bit out of her own era. Since her discovery in 2006 by folk-pop icon Judy Collins, Speace has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk singers. Rock critic Dave Marsh, long a fan, wrote “Amy Speace’s songs hang together like a short story collection, united by a common vantage point and common predicaments…it’s a gift to hear a heart so modest even when it’s wide open.” Her song “The Weight of the World” was named as the #4 Best Folk Song of the last decade by NYC’s premiere AAA radio station, WFUV and was recorded by Judy Collins. Amy has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Marketplace” and has appeared 4 times on “Mountain Stage”, as well as many folk festivals around the world.
