Townes Van Zandt and That Kind of Girl (Amy Speace)

One of the most revered Texas Singer/Songwriter, Townes Van Zandt, would have been 71 years old this week.  Although leaving this side of the ether at a young age, Townes’ influence on succeeding generations of songwriters is undeniable and eternal.  Join Diana Linn for a Tasty Brew of Townes’ songs along with the KKFI broadcast premiere of Amy Speace’s shiny, brand new work of art, “That Kind of Girl.”  Mary Gauthier says of Amy:

“There are voices that serve as a bridge from the past to the future and act as soul connectors,and as a people we need them to keep singing. These voices open hearts with this rare, one in a million quality. Amy Speace has such a voice. Just ask the legendarily discerning Judy Collins; she’ll tell you.Amy’s got it, and then some. She is a timeless artist, a time traveler. Part past, part future. And that’s a good thing, a really good thing.”
