Amy LaVere is a Memphis Tennessee singer song writer and on-fire performer playing songwriter who blends Americana, classic traditional country, gypsy jazz and southern soul. Add to this a hit movie acting career that began with her cameo as Rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson in WALK THE LINE and now includes a featured role in fan and fellow Memphian Craig Brewer's BLACK SNAKE MOAN, and you find a woman who refutes any attempt at demure restraint. “I've always really tried,” Amy says with wry understatement, “to live life largely.” Her new CD, is Runaway's Diary
