Singer-songwriter Amilia K Spicer has a thing for wide-open spaces and mystical places. Even her record label name, Free Range Records, reflects her vagabond spirit”which has carried her from the green hills of her native Pennsylvania, through the hill country of central Texas, to the mountain monasteries of Tibet. Based in Los Angeles and Austin, she might tell you she feels most rooted when she’s heading toward a distant horizon.
For her work on ‘Wow & Flutter,’ taking trips to Southeast Asia and expanding her instrumental vocabulary seemed like worthy sidesteps ” especially for Amilia, who moved to LA to become a director and builds songs like tiny movie stories. Her new collection takes on a theme of exploration as she added guitar and banjo to her repertoire ” inspiring new songs that didn’t connect with her piano work.
Amilia stopped by the studios at BeeHive Productions in Saranac Lake, New York, to tell us about the new album and record a few exclusive video performances.
