Amy Speace 

When: Fri., May 13, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15

Amy Speace has a dry, grainy mezzo-soprano that she wields with a skill that's commensurate with her theatrical training. Though generally couched in spare arrangements around acoustic guitar, the songs are often rich in texture and detail, contributing mightily to the storytelling prowess of her latest, Land Like a Bird. Across her five albums, there's a palpable atmosphere and a kind of footlight spot elegance to her material, which at times feels stylized and self-conscious. —Chris Parker
