DECEMBERSONGS is the ongoing, seasonal music ‘love child’ of Amy Speace, and the Nashville transplanted, Baltimore born, songbird is joined on this 2103 recording by recent visitors to these shores Rod Picott, and husband/wife duo Doug Williams and Telisha Williams. Produced by Neilson Hubbard, the six-song disc features three cover songs and one original from each of the contributors. Classic favourites in the former category are the seventy-year old, disc opener I’ll Be Home For Christmas a hit for Bing Crosby, Willie Nelson’s Pretty Paper and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – first performed by Judy Garland in the MGM musical MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS (1944). Rod penned the sly, (slow) gin themed Dad’s Drunk Again On Christmas, Amy collaborated with Robby Hecht on the love ballad Fall For Me Christmas, and finally from The Wild Ponies, Doug and Telisha, there’s the melancholic I Won’t Be Home For Christmas. Therein the narrator recalls her father’s passing, packing precious possessions, and the For Sale sign planted outside the family home. In support of the release the quartet are undertaking a Stateside tour – principally the East Coast and Midwest – during December. Dates are listed at: www.amyspeace.com DECEMBERSONGS is available now as a download, or a CD housed in a LP style card case. More information can be found at www.decembersongs.bandcamp.com
