Her whimsical, often autobiographical songs are masterful. Funny and enticing, she is up there with the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman.
-New York Times
Rigby combines formidable aural craftsmanship with blunt, self-deprecating honesty.
- Village Voice
Her wit, emotional intelligence, and superior gift for melody have enabled her to capture a moment in the lives of men and women as precisely as Carole King did in the early 70s.
- Chicago Reader
Amy Rigby has made a life out of writing and singing about life. With bands Last Roundup and the Shams in eighties NYC East Village to her solo debut Diary Of A Mod Housewife out of nineties Williamsburg; through a songwriting career in 2000s Nashville and during the past decade with duo partner Wreckless Eric, shes released records on visionary independent labels Rounder, Matador, Signature Sounds and reborn Stiff Records as well as her and Erics own Southern Domestic Recordings. For the last twenty years she has toured the US, Canada, UK and Europe, appearing on Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Late Night with Conan OBrien, World Cafe, WhadYa Know, All Things Considered, BBC Radio 6 Musics Marc Riley Show and Mountain Stage. She lives with Wreckless Eric in the Hudson Valley. Her record Dancing With Joey Ramone is a staple of Little Stevens Underground Garage radio show, and kitchen sink anthem Are We Ever Gonna Have Sex Again? is played in cafes and bars around the country by real life mod housewives and husbands.
The Old Guys, Amy Rigby's first solo album in a dozen years, measures the weight of heroes, home; family, friends and time. Philip Roth and Bob Dylan, CD/cassette players, touring, the wisdom of age and Walter White, groupies, Robert Altman, egg creams and mentors are paid tribute. Twelve songs written unmistakably by Amy and recorded by Wreckless Eric in upstate New York, The Old Guys is the sound of a good girl grown up, never giving up. The Old Guys will be released February 23, 2018.
