Amy LaVere & Will Sexton

Saturday Jun 04, 2016 at 7:30 PM at Riverdog

We have had an eye on Amy LaVere for sometime, but when we heard her celebrated new album with husband Will Sexton, "Hallelujah I'm A Dreamer", we knew we had to make a push to get the couple to Riverdog.

Amy is one of those special artists in Americana that is hard to define. Her delicate and magical voice has drawn from many sources, including from her time with a punk rock band in Detroit and from her time in Nashville where she played in a roots duo and absorbed aspects of country music. There is even an edgy richness to her voice suggesting blues and jazz which may have sprung from her childhood in Louisiana. She is also a master of the upright bass, author of 6 albums and an accomplished actress having appeared in movies such as Black Snake Moan (2006), Walk the Line (2005), A Fine Step (2014) and others.

Will is a respected artist, songwriter and producer with a list of acclaimed solo albums to his name. His credits as producer and songwriter range from collaborations with Waylon Jennings, Stephen Stills, Joe Ely, Bill Carter and psychedelic pioneer Roky Erikson to Steve Earle and punk legend Johnny Thunders. He is the younger brother of
Bob Dylan's guitarist, Charlie Sexton.

Amy “takes the audience into a world where R&B tunes, country waltzes, rockabilly shuffles, and funky Americana music are welded together and given a slightly Gothic twist.” – the London Times
