Amy LaVere & Will Sexton in Concert
Theres something uniquely fun about Amy LaVere, even when shes breaking your heart. She is well known among songwriters and critics alike. NPRs Robert Siegel says she specializes in lyrics that are more barbed than her sweet soprano prepares you for. Her growing catalogue of material and steady critical acclaim suggest a first-tier presence on the Americana and indie-folk/punk circuits.   Her latest album Painting Blue comes out August 16th on Nine Mile Records (Glorietta, David Wax Museum, Carson McHone, Patrick Sweany, Greyhounds).

Amys live performances are anything but predictable. She might appear on stage with a full band, sporting a mask and pink wig, or simply be a natural in blue jeans and sandals, but her upright bass and clever song delivery are constants. Her voice is at once the bully and the victim.  Shes performed in venues as wide-ranging as St. Andrews Hall in London and Memphis famed dive bar Earnestine and Hazels. Theres no room she cant find an audience in and charm it to pieces.

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, this future bard moved continuously throughout childhood due to her fathers job. She spent notable parts of her life in Canada, Texas, Maryland, Illinois, Ohio and Michigan. Outside of Detroit and only just entering high school, Amy formed her first band and began writing and performing.  Music fans first discovered this sweet soprano on This World is Not My Home in 2005, but it was her Jim Dickinson-produced breakout album Anchors & Anvils two years later that put Amy LaVere on the map. Stranger Me, the 2011 release on Archer Records, was called the break-up album of the year by Spin. Paste said it was among the years best, and it earned a first listen feature from NPRs All Things Considered. She followed it in 2014 with another critical smash: Runaways Diary, a concept album based on her own experience as a teenage runaway, produced by Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars).  American Songwriter called it boundary pushing heartfelt, reflective, challenging and consistently compelling. NPR Musics Robert Christgau said it was her best yet.  Of Hallelujah Im A Dreamer (Archer Records, 2015) No Depression said simply: pure bliss.

In addition to her solo records and a tireless touring schedule, Amy enjoys working with other artists. In 2012 she joined an all-star collaboration called The Wandering, composed of Amy, Luther Dickinson, Shannon McNally, Sharde Thomas and Valerie June. They released Go On Now, You Cant Stay Here (Songs Of The South, 2012) to critical acclaim and sold-out shows.

In the afterglow of The Wandering, Amy and Shannon McNally hit the road together and released an EP titled Chasing the Ghost, The Rehearsal Sessions (Archer Records, 2012),  featuring songs from both artists recorded live during rehearsals for the tour. Amy next paired up with noted Memphis rocker John Paul Keith to create Motel Mirrors. Their styles clearly complemented one another, which made for magic on stage and in the recording studio. Their eponymous vinyl EP release was named one of the 10 Essential Albums of 2013 by No Depression. In 2017 Motel Mirrors released a full length effort, In the Meantime; this record had the addition of some Will Sexton co-writes and his powerful guitar work throughout. Motel Mirrors later released a live recording, Gotta Lotta Rhythm, on the Italian label Wild Honey.

Painting Blue, produced by her husband Will Sexton, captures perfectly the moment that Amy is in. Will Sextons masterful production and Amys soft, clarinet-like vocal pour over you, pushing and pulling, stirring and calming.  As weve come to expect, this record is honest, revealing and sounds uniquely like no one else.
