Amilia K Spicer
It may be her haunting, husky voice that first grabs a listener, the way it glides over melodies like smoke, but it’s the songwriting that Spicer really wants you to hear. Her songs have a grit- even when they ache within shadows and light. Wanderlust spills from her songs, with topography that covers languid farmlands, quirky roadside stops, and occasional turns down a dark alley with flickering neon. Or as she might say with a slight drawl: “Water, wine and whiskey”. Spicer was celebrated by the Los Angeles Music Awards, named “Best Americana Artist”, and has performed at venues and festivals all over the country, including the Kerrville Folk Festival, WoodyFest, 30A, Americanafest, and the Kennedy Center.
Also a filmmaker, producer, and photographer, her songs have been featured on NPR’s “Now Hear This”, and videos lauded by AXS: ““Mesmerizing… A testament to the notion that DIY methods can produce some extraordinary results."
Her most recent album, Wow and Flutter, has made many critics’ best-of lists, and was lauded as “one of the best albums, any genre.
