If you are a fan of singer-songwriter/folk/Americana music, you’ve probably heard Amy Speace’s name over the past few years trumpeted by many heralding her as a ‘torchbearer’, bridging the gap between old and new schools of folk music from Mary Gauthier to Judy Collins, who recorded Amy’s song “Weight of the World,” calling it ‘one of the best anti-war songs I’ve heard.’  In April 2013, Amy will release her latest collection of songs, How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat (WindBone Records/Tone Tree).  A document to living gracefully with grief, it is a deeply honest 11 song journey that includes a stand-out duet with Grammy-nominated John Fullbright (“The Sea and the Shore”) as well as guests Ben Sollee on cello and Mary Gauthier both singing and co-writing the track “Left Me Hanging.” “It is the most daring, confident, ambitious and beautiful album Amy Speace has made since she began recording…she has never sung or written better,” says rock journalist Dave Marsh in the liner notes that accompany the record.  “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.”
