Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Amy Speace has a lovely voice, that’s my first thought as I hear her album. Her songs are lovely too, in a folksy way. She writes sharp lyrics about things that concern us all.

“Rosalie” is almost unbearably sad, but not hard on the ear in any way.

“Arizona 160” is a little like Dar Williams, with a carefree feel to the music.

“Fallen” is a great jazz styled song with smart lyrics.

This is a very nice record by an artist who knows her craft. It is a pleasure to hear it even if it tackles difficult subjects.
