Biography

"It really is quite simple — no one of any gender or generation has written as many good songs in Rigby's realistic postfolk mode since she launched 'Diary of a Mod Housewife' in 1996." Robert Christgau, Village Voice

Born in Pittsburgh and a long-time resident of New York City, Amy played drums in short-lived no wave group Stare Kits before picking up guitar, ... Read more in Amazon's Amy Rigby Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Renowned songwriter Amy Rigby's upcoming fifth album, Little Fugitive, finds the singer, who began her solo career as the Mod Housewife, bringing it all back home. Rigby co-produced the album with her longtime guitarist Jon Graboff and the result is a collection that continues to prove Rigby to be the ultimate rock girl next door. Signature. 2005.

Amazon.com

You can say one thing about Amy Rigby: Whether cowering in the dreads of despair or rejoicing in newly sprung reverie, she's the same clever, cynical and exceedingly straightforward songwriter we have come to appreciate since her 1996 solo debut, Diary of a Mod Housewife. On record number five, the 40-something New Yorker once again turns life's observations, both humdrum and vital, into tightly wound, three-minute pop diaries. In "Like Rasputin," Rigby staggers to her feet from the evil man just in time to grapple with "The Trouble With Jeanie," her new husband's peach of an ex-wife. As usual, she finds levity in any situation, and this time she fanaticizes about "Dancing With Joey Ramone," calls out the absurdities of "Needy Men" and explains how the woman in "The Year of the Fling" was "running fast from the past (and) hell bent on having a blast." Like any great author, Rigby is content enough in her craft to expose the imperfections as comfortably as the triumphs. And as with any great songwriter, she always manages to pull it off. --Scott Holter

And it gets better and better from there...one killer track after another.

The lyrics are witty and easy to relate to, and the melodies are fun.

I didn't think she could top her last album but she did. INCREDIBLE. "Rasputin" is the kind of song Lou Reed should be writing. And it gets better and better from there...one killer track after another. This is her most powerful album yet. Every song is right in your face. It's fun, yet serious. Hooks galore. Great production. Super-tight band. Complete success.

I had the opportunity to listen to every cut on "Little Fugitive" and I can say with 100% certainty that this is Ms. Rigby's strongest album to date. In fact, I can't remember a non-greatest hits CD by anyone that is this consistently wonderful from beginning to end. Each song could easily be the best song on someone else's CD. Critics should stop comparing Amy to other artists, because the fact is, there is no one like Amy. No one can touch her intelligent lyrics. They are so consistently strong that I worry some listeners don't realize what a great composer of music she is. Unlike so many other talented songwriters, none of her songs sound like any of her other songs. Melodically, each stands on its own. This woman is a songwriting genius worthy of wide acclaim. It is time for her fame to grow exponentially.

...Amy Rigby just keeps getting better. I thought she had really hit one out of the park, topping her usual already high standards, with "Till the Wheels Fall Off", but this one is, amazingly, even better...You'll laugh, you'll cry. Nobody does this kind of tragicomic poignancy better, with the exception of Loudon Wainwright III.

Also, if you get the chance to see her live, don't pass it up. She puts on an incredibly rockin', generous and rambling show...

And, if all the above isn't enough to sell you, remember: the woman danced with Joey Ramone!

This CD is a thoughtful reflection on the peculiarities of life and love. The lyrics are witty and easy to relate to, and the melodies are fun. Amy Rigby is my nine year old daughter's new favorite performer - Rigby sings about topics at the center of all of our lives.
