Amy Speace returns to Natalie's with her special guest Ben de la Cour for a special evening of music. Speace was discovered by folk/pop legend Judy Collins and released her debut album on Collins' Wildflower Records to rave reviews. She moved to Nashville from NYC in 2011, and in 2013, 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. Rock critic Dave Marsh, who contributed the album's liner notes, 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 songs have been recorded by Judy Collins, Red Molly, Memphis Hall of Fame blues artist Sid Selvidge and others. Ben de la Cour has lived a different kind of life. After growing up in Brooklyn, he set out to see the world as an amateur boxer, bartender, and agricultural worker. He lived in Havana, Paris, London, Los Angeles, and New Orleans before finally settling in Nashville, and it was at Nashville's Greenland Sound that de la Cour recorded the eleven songs of perfectly crafted Americanoir that make up his second album Midnight in Havana.
