Wow and Flutter finds folk/americana singer-songwriter Amilia K Spicer teaming up on her third full-length with keyboardists Rami Jaffee (Wallflowers, Foo Fighters) and Mike Finnegan (Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal), as well as Woody Guthrie disciple and singer-songwriter Jimmy LaFave. Bassist Daryl Johnson (Stones/Dylan), guitarists Tony Gilkyson (X, Lone Justice) and Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams) appear as special guests. Spicer adds to her piano repertoire by personally adding in guitar, banjo and lap steel. She produced the record; multi-instrumentalist Steve McCormick co-produced and engineered. For mixing, Spicer enlisted Malcolm Burn, who was seminal to many of her favorite records with Daniel Lanois.
Wow and Flutter has earned early praise from Popdose, who called it, “One of the best albums, any genre, in the last decade.”
About Amilia K Spicer:
Called “fearless” by the San Antonio Express-News, Spicer drew attention the first time she played an LA club on a whim. She was quickly on her way-—to a rare Mainstage Kerrville Folk Festival debut, three Kennedy Center performances, song placements in several high-profile TV shows (Party of Five, Dawson’s Creek), and quirky indie films. In addition to recording Wow and Flutter, Spicer has also produced tracks for other projects. These include lauded contributions to compilations tributing Neil Young (alongside Kristen Hersh, Tanya Donnelly), and Peter Case (with John Prine, Hayes Carll). She also appeared on the Safety Harbor Kids Holiday Collection, (Billy Idol, Jackson Browne). A sought-after harmony singer and arranger, Spicer is featured on albums by John Gorka and the final Rounder release from the late Bill Morrissey.
