“That Kind Of Girl” was recorded live in Nashville at the beginning of July. It’s a redemption album with a lot of soul and I made it with a killer band – WIll Kimbrough (guitars), Carl Broemel (guitars/pedal steel), Eamon McLoughlin (strings/mandolin), Danny Mitchell (keys/horn), producer – Neilson Hubbard (drums), and Dean Marold (upright bass). John Moreland and Garrison Starr came in for harmonies. And Tim Easton, Ben Glover, Rod Picott, Doug & Telisha Williams were my choir on a song. It’s always awkward to ask for help, but I’ve chosen to release this one independently so I need your help to hire the best Team in the business to get this record heard
Though she began her career as an actress/director/playwright, Speace proved a late-blooming musical artist, picking up guitar at age 25 and composing her first song at age 28. She was discovered on the New York acoustic scene by GRAMMY winner Judy Collins, who has since recorded Speace's songs and toured with her. In 2002 Speace released her debut album, Fable, which Billboard described as "undeniably earnest and commercially accessible." Her sophomore effort, Songs For Bright Street, was released in 2006, with the album's 13 tracks earning favorable comparisons to GRAMMY winners such as Sheryl Crow, Alison Krauss and Gretchen Wilson. Speace followed with 2009's The Killer In Me and 2011's Land Like A Bird and the 2014 “ hit album” How to Sleep in a a Stormy Boat.
