•Ξ Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 album from the singer/songwriter. That Kind Of Girl is an intimate, heart~wrenching exploration of a love affair and it’s aftermath, the dangerous addictive dance of love and alcohol, and the sobering journey out of it. Recorded live in three days to capture an emotional immediacy, rife with stirring strings, weeping pedal steel and full of melancholy, these songs are not only an exorcism of the soul but an exploration of the impossible secrecy of “the other woman.” The twelve original songs on That Kind Of Girl were recorded in East Nashville and feature producer Neilson Hubbard on drums, guitarists Will Kimbrough (Rodney Crowell, Todd Snider) and Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Eamon McLoughlin on strings and mandolin, Danny Mitchell on keys and horns, and Dean Marold on upright bass.
iTunes Editors’ Notes
• A former Shakespearian actor currently living in Nashville, Amy Speace knows it’s the performance that matters. For That Kind of Girl, she assembled an A~team featuring producer and drummer Neilson Hubbard, guitarists Will Kimbrough (Rodney Crowell) and Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), upright bassist Dean Marold, keyboardist Danny Mitchell (also on horns), and mandolinist Eamon McLoughlin (also on strings). Over three days in East Nashville, they pulled together these 12 originals. It’s a choice look at the arc of a love affair, its eventual dissolution in tears and alcohol, and a modest recovery. “Three Days” alone lingers with danger in the air.

• In just 47 minutes, folk Americana singer/songwriter Amy Speace has revealed her whole self to her listeners with her latest album That Kind Of Girl. Teeming with gorgeous ballads and velvet vocals, That Kind Of Girl is a delicate confession of hardship. Speace shakily sings heartbreaking yet hopeful lyrics like “I can do better than a half kiss/I can do better than a near miss/I can do better/I can do better than this” off the track “Better Than This” and the raw honesty of “No one could tell my little hell/I kept it inside/I wrestled with doubt/The next day I’d count the bottles of wine” from the album’s title track.
• Amy Speace’s background in theatre provides a stable basis for her musicianship: the drama and intimacy she presumably learned from her investment in theatre years ago has given her the gift of emotion. Without it, That Kind Of Girl would not demonstrate the kind of beautiful reality that it does. Speace’s willingness to bare all for the sake of music is a commendable and often unseen action. Because of it, though, we have been granted a melodic, thoughtful compilation. ⊆• http://www.elmoremagazine.com/
