Los Angeles, CA –  Following a successful run at the prestigious Folk Alliance festival last month, Americana songstress Amilia K Spicer is gearing up for her next single “Lightning,” from her new album Wow and Flutter (out April 28, 2017). “Lighting” will be serviced to radio this week and will go for adds in April. Spicer will hit the road later this month to visit radio stations across the country.  Take a listen to “Lightning” here.  Spicer will perform songs from Wow and Flutter on April 7th at her acoustic East of West show in Pennsylvania, which will also feature her photographs from Tibet, Nepal and other locales. In addition, Spicer will tour as a special guest with renowned singer/songwriter John Gorka in June. All tour dates can be found at amiliakspicer.com.

“Lightning” follows the first single “Fill Me Up.” The Bluegrass Situation premiered the “Fill Me Up” video, an atmospheric clip that finds Spicer reliving moments of her childhood in rural Pennsylvania, while singing the emotional track.

 

Wow and Flutter has earned early praise from Popdose, who called it, “One of the best albums, any genre, in the last decade.”

Critics have also previously raved about Spicer and her live performances:

“A fearless performer… in bars, at folk festivals, in house concert settings and in venues surrounded by classical musicians, Spicer has something smart to say.“ – San Antonio Express-News

“Intimate and Dreamy” – Los Angeles Times

 

Wow and Flutter finds Spicer teaming up 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.

Philly Icon BUNNY SIGLER To Release New Song “Till I See You Again” on Mar 24!

Philly Icon BUNNY SIGLER To Release New Song “Till I See You Again” on Mar 24!

“Till I See You Again” is the first single from Sigler’s upcoming album, “Young at Heart”

Living legend, Philadelphia icon, and renowned R&B singer/songwriter Walter “Bunny” Sigler is excited to announce the latest addition to his ever-expanding discography – a single titled “Till I See You Again”. This song will be released on iTunes and all major digital outlets on March 24, via Sigler’s own Bunz Music & Records label. “Till I See You Again” is the first single from Sigler’s upcoming album ‘Young at Heart’, which is slated for a summer release. ‘Young at Heart’ features Bunny’s fresh take on the genre of jazz, mixing tunes from the classic standards songbook with several of Sigler’s own compositions and his familiar R&B sound. Each of these tunes, old and new, features Sigler’s signature vocal performances that are bursting with emotion.

“Till I See You Again” is no exception, from the opening harmonies to the catchy chorus. The slow ballad gives Sigler a foundation on which he builds a sound with elements of classics and modern tunes alike. The classic instrumentation invites Sigler’s emotional and powerful voice to paint a truly heartfelt and sweet picture of a man longing for a “special friend” while the two are apart. Sigler notes he has dedicated the song to the late Marvin Morrow, who co-wrote the song with Bunny. Tasteful and restrained, “Till I See You Again” is a strong start to ‘Young at Heart,’ Sigler’s follow-up to 2015’s “Bundino”. Lloyd Remick, Bunny’s longtime attorney says:

“Bunny has done a gospel LP, a Christmas LP and two “love and funk” LPs. Now he presents a standards and jazz album to show his complete versatility – he’s a rare and skilled musician.”
