about Amy Lavere
A burgeoning star, Amy LaVere is becoming renowned worldwide for her songwriting, bass playing, and vocals. She sings with a sweet, haunting voice that can turn on a dime from innocent to lusty (“Norah Jones with an added Cyndi Lauper element” — Mojo Magazine; “Spookiness suits her” — New York Times). Playing as a duo with her husband Will Sexton, she’s an inventive, thoughtful singer-songwriter who has crowds throughout the US and Europe smitten.
Support comes from Izaak Opatz
Opatz is one of a kind, an eccentric singer-songwriter whom you not only connect with, but root for as he tries in vain to sort out his love life in songs he describes as “Nora Ephron Rom-Com-earnestness with a sense of humor.” His latest album Mariachi Static (which takes its title from a lyric in Zevon’s “Carmelita”), produced by Malachi DeLorenzo, is an easygoing listen, driven by Opatz’s sublime way with a lyric. ~Rollingstone.com
