Amy LaVere: Bass Slappin' Sweetheart

Amy LaVere is the latest artist to perform on the Sun Studio Sessions web video series. It's easy to see why Amy is garnering critical acclaim at home and abroad. Just this fall, Amy was nominated as best emerging artist by the Americana Music Association and this summer she'll take her great live show on the road. In addition to Bonnaroo, LaVere and her bandmates, Paul Taylor and Steve Selvidge, will open shows for both Langhorne Slim and the North Mississippi Allstars before hitting the UK later this summer.

Beyond sharing the stage, the connection to the Dickinson family runs deep. Taylor drummed for Cody and Luther before they formed the Allstars and their father, the legendary Jim Dickinson (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan), produced her latest release Anchors & Anvils. But, LaVere is not moving ahead soley because of who she knows. She's a compelling performer will appeal to a range of music lovers, including "Norah Jones fans and anyone who loved Robert Plant's and Alison Krauss's Raising Sand." (Daily Mail, UK). Comparisons are nice, but check out Amy's work below as it speaks for itself.
